The difference between editing and proofreading
Proofreading involves a superficial check before submission/publication to catch surface errors only, such as grammar, spelling and punctuation mistakes.
Editing is a more comprehensive service. Editing involves proofreading, as well as improving language, sentence structure and word usage, and ensuring that ideas and arguments are expressed clearly.
However, all of our editing and proofreading services are tailored (for example, dissertation editing and book editing are different). Check out each service page for a full outline of exactly what that particular service involves.
Global English Editing’s approach is simple.You get to name your return date and you’ll never be charged extra if you require a short turnaround.
We can handle most deadlines as we have a large team of editors and operate efficiently. However, we will always be upfront if your preferred return date cannot be met.
Global English Editing also never discriminates on price based on the turnaround. We provide the same high quality editing or proofreading service every time, and therefore do not believe the price should change based on the return date. In contrast, many other professional editing services charge a substantial surcharge for a short turnaround.
Payment can be made via credit/debit card or Paypal. For more information about the submission and payment process, please see our How it Works page.
