How Global English Editing works
- Send. To start, send us your work via the Get Started form and nominate your return date.

- Work begins. Your editor begins work.
- Document return. By the return date, we will send you two copies: one with all changes clearly visible and the other a clean copy.
Key features of the process
Placing an order
Complete the Get Started form, which provides us the necessary details about your order. We will quickly reply by email with confirmation of the price and return date. If you would like to proceed, we will send an invoice with the payment options.
How to pay
After you complete the submission form, we will send you an invoice with the payment options. We accept payment via credit/debit card or Paypal.
Files we accept
We edit Microsoft Word (.doc and .docx) files, using the track changes function. Clients retain creative control over their work, with our changes clearly visible and comments and suggestions made in the margin.
We can also edit Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) file types, using “sticky notes” instead of track changes.
What you’ll receive from us
By the agreed return date we will return two documents. One with all changes clearly visible in the body of the text, with comments and suggestions in the margin, and the other a clean copy with changes already incorporated. However, we encourage you to review the changes.

The philosophy behind our submission and payment system
Global English Editing is an avowedly online company that leverages the enormous power of the Internet to be a great value proposition. However, we do not believe that our clients are best served by having a totally automated submission and payment process.
Effective communication is an essential ingredient in a quality editing and proofreading service. Therefore, our operations team will review your initial submission and answer your questions.
In turn, we may have questions for you so that we fully understand the context of your job. Only when we are both in sync do we request payment and allocate an editor.
