It’s simple: just think of a short, simple name that will help us keep track of your document as we process your order, or respond to your request for advice. For example, you might use:

  • the file name (such as Draft report JS approved)
  • your name (such as James Vang editing request)
  • the date (such as Energy report 300113)
  • a version number (Draft report V6.3).

Some of our clients have special instructions for the editing, and some don't. Many clients are happy just to let us edit their work in line with our in-house style, our editing and proofing checklists and our professional judgement. You might want to give us special instructions about things like:

  • things you don’t want us to touch
  • your organisation’s style requirements (we do all Polished, Readable and Structured editing in line with our editing style, unless you tell us otherwise)
  • when you plan to send us your final draft document
  • when you want your edited document back to you.

If you provide us with a Microsoft Word document, we can edit it using the Track Changes feature. This makes it easy for you to identify all the changes we make to your document.

We only recommend using Track Changes if you want us to make a small number of changes. It can be very time-consuming and tedious for you to work through hundreds of minor format changes. We strongly advise that you read our edited document very carefully, as if you were reading it for the first time. This is easier to do without the visual clutter that Track Changes leaves in a document.

To upload your document, click on the Choose File button. Navigate to the file on your computer you want to upload, and click on it.

You can only upload one file per order. If you want us to edit more than one file on your order, please contact us.

Please read and accept the terms and conditions of use.

Depending on our workload, we may be able to edit your document in a shorter timeframe than indicated. We do not guarantee to do this, but want to offer the best possible service. So, if you have a deadline (such as a meeting) that you would prefer to have your document back by, please indicate it.

With our As soon as possible service, we do not charge extra for providing a quicker turnaround time.

This is not a required field: you don't have to indicate a preferred time if you don't want to.

If your organisation wants to use our editing services regularly, we invite you to organise a payment arrangement with us. Your organisation specifies a maximum amount permitted for each order, the maximum number of orders permitted each month, and the individuals (and their email addresses) authorised under the arrangement. We then invoice your organisation at the end of the month, with full details of all orders.

To organise a payment arrangement, contact us.
