What our editors will do for you

Editing a document with a red pen

Your chosen editor will start with fundamental corrections to ensure the foundation of your writing is solid. However, with our editing services, improving grammar and mechanics is just the beginning. Our editors will polish your writing until it is clear, correct, and compelling while maintaining your voice and meaning. They will also ensure that your writing effectively expresses your ideas and effortlessly moves from topic to topic. In addition, our editors will make recommendations for revising sections of your writing if they feel that there is a better way to express your perspective. By the time our editors are finished, every aspect of your writing will be perfected.

Specifically, our editors will:

  • Correct errors in spelling, grammar, syntax, tense, and sentence structure
  • Ensure that your format and citations adhere to any required style guide, including AP, APA, MLA, and CMS
  • Improve readability, clarity, and flow
  • Ensure tonal consistency
  • Enhance your word choice and vocabulary
  • Check for consistency in regional English spelling conventions, including American, British, Canadian, and Australian
  • Remove redundant and unnecessary content to focus your writing

ServiceScape editors use their extensive knowledge and skills to ensure that your format and style is correct and that your writing is the very best it can be.
