Academic editing & proofreading for ESL Authors

If you’re an ESL (English-as-a-second-language) author looking to write and submit an English-language academic paper to a journal or your professor, you are probably staring at an uphill task. Choosing the right word, constructing correct sentences, following the right academic conventions—these can all be pretty daunting. But you do know your subject, and your submission deserves to be evaluated based on the merit of your research, and not rejected simply because of the quality of English.
So how do you get across the language barrier? We can help!
Having worked with over 60,000 ESL researchers and students worldwide, our editors are proficient in editing for ESL authors. They understand the specific issues that you face when writing academic papers in English—sentence structure, clarity, academic style, word choice, etc. And our English-language academic editing and proofreading services are tailored to tackle and eliminate those issues and prepare a final manuscript that reflects native English.
