Although I was initially skeptical that a company that focuses on academics had good editors for non-fiction and memoirs, I was impressed with the professionalism of Editage in our preliminary phone conversations and emails discussing the various services. To help overcome my skepticism, Editage sent three resumes of editors who were available. The fact that I could choose an editor was unexpected but welcome. I will certainly use Editage again. For one, they met their self-imposed deadline. Moreover, my editor Kate did an outstanding job. She showed an understanding of the subject matter; made suggestions; explained her suggestions and changes; and made the manuscript better. I have self-published the manuscript and have credited Editage and Kate in my book. I would like to add that after the editing was completed, I had difficulty paying for the service online. Communication with the Editage tech support team could not have been better in trying to solve the problem.

I have absolutely loved this service. What I appreciated was that you offered an opportunity for my manuscript to be reviewed multiple times at reasonable prices. That is a deal no other service I looked at offered. As a first time author I want to ensure that the product I put out is of the highest quality. With that being said, I needed an editing service that would work with me to help me accomplish that goal. Editage has gone above and beyond to do just that, and I can't be happier with the service. You are making the editing process, which I'm sure you know is a very long process, an enjoyable learning experience. I plan to resubmit my manuscript to you once I've made the corrections my editor suggested, and possibly one other time to ensure the quality of the book. I look forward to continuing to work with this service and I will be giving the name of this company to every other writer I know. Thank you very much. You must be very proud of this service!

Who are our editors?
A lot of effort has gone into your draft, and it is only fair that it is edited by someone who understands not only your writing but also your vision. We have selected experts who are experienced in editing manuscripts on literature, society, arts, culture, and the like; are familiar with publishing standards and conventions; and know how to translate ideas into engaging content.
Once translated, your draft will be edited for accurate English usage. This is done to ensure that your book is publication-ready. However, English editing is an add-on service and can be excluded if you want to use the English draft for reference purposes only.
