Client Reviews

I have successfully submitted manuscripts to top SCI journals with the help of Wordvice. First, I was pleased that Wordvice could match me with an editor who specializes in the field of study. I have used many different editing services but the WORDVICE editors are the most professional editors with subject expertise. Even though my subject is highly technical, the editor was able to provide professional advice. As a non-native Englishspeaker, my English proficiency is limited; thus, the Wordvice service is essential to ensure clarity of expressions and eliminate grammatical errors.

The editors are quite professional and of help. They corrected my errors in punctuation and pointed out the ambiguous words along with a detailed explanation and suggestion. They even remind me of possible illogical terms I used between paragraphs. This helps me a lot when I review the context of work and also makes my viewpoints clearer than before. Thank you!

  • Tyler Lassic Oct-04-2020

    I just got my essay back at 3 a.m. in the morning and I really loved the feedback. I paid for two editors Paige G and Annabel both of them really enjoyed my essay. Honestly, I thought my paper sucked but I'm glad it was well written with several issues. Thank you both again for the amazing criticisms. I hope both of you will read more of the work before my semester ends.

Upload Your Document
We tailor our editing services to fit the needs of your document.
When you submit your order, a project manager will apply your order details (including document type, formatting, English type, desired turnaround, and any instructions for the editor) and match your paper with our best available editor.

All of our editing services will focus on the following areas:
  • Proofreading (grammar, spelling and punctuation)
  • Terminology and language use
  • Conciseness (reducing wordiness without changing meaning/effect)
  • Coherent logic
  • Clarity in meaning
  • Style (word and phrase choice, tone and flow of text)
  • Substantive feedback on topic development
  • Formatting to conform with applicable style guides
  • To read more about details for specific editing and proofreading services, choose the service type that best suits your needs:
  • Academic Editing Services
  • Admissions Essay Editing Services
  • Business and Corporate Editing Services
  • We know how important it is that your editor understands what your work is communicating. When you upload your paper for language editing, one of our project managers peruses the content and, using a state-of-art auto allocation algorithm, assigns your paper to a Wordvice editor with an advanced degree in the academic field of your paper. In the rare cases where an editing expert with the right research background is unavailable to edit your paper, we utilize our extensive network of academic contract editors to find the right proofreading professional for the job. We take pride in our 97.8% customer satisfaction rate almost as much as we do in the fact that most of our orders come from repeat business and referrals from satisfied clients.
    With over 150 editing professionals, we have experts across a wide spectrum of academic disciplines. This foundation of true expertise (and in most cases very extensive editing experience) allows us to confidently entrust documents to editors who are very familiar with the subject and/or field of the work they are editing.

    After we receive your order, the editing manager opens each file and evaluates the content. From there, it is assigned to the editor on our team with the most appropriate experience and qualifications relevant to the paper’s topic or subject area.

    Although we ensure that your editor will have experience in your general discipline, we cannot always guarantee that this person will be an expert in the narrower sub-discipline or have deep knowledge about contemporary research related to the topic. For example, if you submit a paper on molecular biology, we may pair it with an editor coming from the wider discipline of biology, but not necessarily having studied the specific sub-discipline of molecular biology.

    There is no substitute for subject-matter expertise. However, the foundations of good composition and expression are similar across academic disciplines. Good editing is editing that brings about the desired results!
    Our services are given on per-word rates that are based on word count, service level (e.g., Standard, Premium, or Two-Editor) and turnaround time. Enter your word count into our pricing calculator and receive an instant quote and delivery deadline of your document.
