ESL Editing Services and ESL Proofreading Services for ESL Authors

What do our ESL editors do?

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 ESL editors are proficient in ESL editing and ESL proofreading 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 ESL academic editing and ESL proofreading services are tailored to tackle and eliminate those issues and prepare a final manuscript that reflects native English.

The pressure to publish in English has intensified over the years. With most high-impact publications being in English, scholars across the world are encouraged to communicate their research in a non-native language to increase outreach and citations and build a global reputation. To help authors combat this challenge, ESL editors help refine the language and presentation of their research manuscripts. Editors at Editage specialize in assisting ESL authors in checking their work and making correct word choices, improving sentence construction, or helping them smoothly transition from one sentence to the next. Our editors are native English speakers who are also rigorously trained to eliminate language and grammar errors, improve the structure, and lend a native English tone to research manuscripts increasing ESL authors’ chances of publication success.
