How it works

We follow a thorough translation, edit, and review process to ensure that you receive a manuscript that not only retains the original meaning but is also publication-ready.

  • Translation

    A translator converts the manuscript into English, focusing on the technical terminology and subject-area conventions.
  • Bilingual review

    A bilingual expert checks the accuracy of the translation and ensures that the author’s original meaning is conveyed.
  • Language edit

    An experienced reviewer conducts a check for punctuation, grammar, language style, formatting, clarity, and fluency.
  • Final review

    A senior reviewer checks whether all your requirements have been met before sending you the final, publication-ready file.

Journal-specific Formatting

Understanding and implementing journal guidelines can be a time- and effort-intensive process. Let our experts help you by formatting the translated manuscript in accordance with the guidelines prescribed by your target journal.

Here are some of the aspects that our experts will check:

  • Does your manuscript meet the prescribed word limit?
  • Do the figures and tables follow the specified style?
  • Does the manuscript follow the language style required?
  • Have the references and in-text citations been presented as specified?
  • Have you followed the overall layout requirements such as margins, spacing, alignment, and section breaks?

Free and Unlimited Q&A

Often, authors would like to communicate with the translator who has worked on their manuscript. Our Q&A service enables you to seek clarifications from your translator at any point after you have received the translated file, at no additional cost.

Here are some common questions our translators receive

  • Could you please reword this paragraph?
  • Could you please explain your interpretation to me? I would like to know if your writing expresses my meaning more effectively.
  • I am not sure if the translation conveys my intended meaning fully.

100% Quality Assurance

We guarantee that all manuscripts translated by our experts will meet the standards required by the international publishing industry. If you find that the quality we have delivered does not meet your expectations, we will re-work the entire manuscript at no cost and ensure that all your requirements are met.

You can use the free re-translation service if you find that

  • The translation is inaccurate or does not convey the original meaning fully.
  • The quality of English in the manuscript does not meet publication standards.
  • Your instructions have not been followed.
  • You are dissatisfied with the overall quality of the manuscript, and can cite specific instances.
  • Your manuscript has been rejected by the journal because of the quality of English, even after addressing all our comments before submitting your paper to the journal.

Note: The free re-translation service is applicable to cases of obvious errors or issues and if you have not made major revisions to the manuscript.

Free Editing Certificate

We issue an editing certificate confirming that your manuscript

  • has been edited by a native-English editor
  • has been checked thoroughly for correct grammar and language
  • is of publication quality

In addition, the editing certificate clarifies that your manuscript has been prepared by following all requirements of ethical publication and has no instances of plagiarism or any other suspected ethical misconduct.

Submitting our editing certificate as part of your submission package to your target journal can help you increase your chances of acceptance for publication. The certificate can provide the journal reviewers with added assurance that your manuscript has been prepared with diligence.
