In the business world, time is money. Your day is busy enough without having to worry about the finer details involved in checking or improving memos, reports, presentations, manuals, and all those other vital but time-consuming documents. You want to be noticed for your ideas, not your mistakes. Sending an important memo out to the masses with even one typo can be disastrous. You never know who is keeping track of the little things. A successful business can separate itself from its competitors and dominate market share, and an effective and vital means of conveying your superiority over others in your field is through the written word.
Let The Reliable Editor proofread your written communication. The Reliable Editor’s business editing services are available for websites, emails, memos, business proposals, grants, sales contracts, brochures, and other formal business documents. The Reliable Editor provides grammar editing, which includes the correction of punctuation, verb tense, spelling, and sentence structure. Your document is carefully proofread, ensuring effective communication to your target audience.
Your document will be edited using the Microsoft Word track changes feature, which is a standard feature installed in current versions of Microsoft Word. This Microsoft component allows you to quickly accept all changes proposed by The Reliable Editor or accept corrections individually. Comments, corrections, and suggestions, which are listed in the right hand margin, are easy to identify and accept into your document.
Remember – mistakes and inconsistencies in your printed and online communications reflect poorly on your business; they send the wrong signal to your current and potential customers. The Reliable Editor can help you to ensure that you are developing the right materials for your prospects and customers, which is essential for a well-run business. Your image rests on creating and refining an articulate and compelling message, free of errors, in all of your electronic and printed materials.
Express Proofreading Service
If your book or manuscript is already polished and only needs a final read for minor lapses or typos, we can offer you low rates and a quick turnaround time. We specifically created this service for the author whose manuscript has already been reviewed by another editor or proofreader and is in the final draft stage. This is the service to request if you are about to go to press, upload your file to the Internet, or otherwise distribute it to your readers.
- $2.25/page (page = 250 words) when marking hard copy (printout)
- $2.00/page for corrected electronic copy (MS Word file)
Basic Proofreading Service
Our basic service includes proofing for spelling mistakes, typos, punctuation problems, capitalization errors, and awkward grammar. If your manuscript has been peer reviewed, workshopped by a writers’ group, or has gone through several drafts to get it to finally say just what you want, this might be the service for you.
- $3.25/page (page = 250 words) when marking hard copy (printout)
- $2.95/page for corrected electronic copy (MS Word file)
Extended Proofreading / Line-by-Line Copyediting Service
This is our most requested service. Extended proofreading / line-by-line copyediting includes everything that comes with our basic service package. In addition, we will help you with the overall structure of your manuscript. Is your writing clear? Does it make sense? Is your word choice appropriate? Are there any redundancies or inconsistencies in the plot or narration? Are your characters or situations believable? During the editing process, we will leave you comments and questions in the margin of the document that address these issues and more.
- $4.25/page (page = 250 words) when marking hard copy (printout)
- $3.95/page for corrected electronic copy (MS Word)
Deep Editing / Rewriting Service
If your text needs an extensive rewrite or a more aggressive edit, we can help you overhaul it. (Please note, this service is rarely needed. The line-by-line copyediting service is usually adequate at addressing most issues.)
- $12.00/page (page = 250 words) when marking hard copy (printout)
- $10.00/page for corrected electronic copy (MS Word)
