What do Editor World's editors do?

Our editors will improve the clarity and readability of your document, focusing on the flow of the paper as well as grammar, word usage, spelling, punctuation, consistency, and style. Our editors provide editing and proofreading services. We do not provide rewriting or writing services, but provide recommendations or suggestions where necessary. Please provide specific instructions for your editor when you submit your document for editing services so we can best meet your needs.

How does the free sample edit work?

Many of our editors offer a free sample edit of up to 300 words to help you pick the best professional editor for you. To request a free sample edit from one of our editors, click on "Free Sample Edit" in the editor's profile and upload your document along with instructions. We recommend the free sample edit to help you find the editor who is a good fit for your document.
