When you upload a document that is already in English, we assess the standard of your text and provide you with a custom quote based on one of the following three services:

  • Proofreading
  • Copyediting
  • Rewriting

Proofreading

For cases where your English is already of a high standard. For this service level, we correct any basic grammatical errors, spelling mistakes, punctuation errors and we’ll also rearrange basic sentence structure, syntax etc. along with ensuring the accuracy of word usage and terminology.

Prices for proofreading start from less than $0.03c per word!

Copyediting

Sometimes a person’s English will require more in-depth editing to bring it up to a native standard. We offer this more intensive service which includes all the aforementioned proofreading service elements but we also include considerable restructuring of the language to improve tone, flow, clarity and logical transitions.

Prices for copyediting start from less than $0.04c per word!

Rewriting

For ESL speakers, there are some cases where the text will require a total rewrite to become readily understandable English. An expert with a strong background in your specific industry or academic area will rewrite your text to a native English standard whilst ensuring that the intended meaning is maintained and that the text is written in the correct style and tone for the target audience.

Prices for English rewriting start from less than $0.07c per word!

    5 star review  Price, Quality, Service : Must I choose only two? Or one? English Monitor is one of the hidden gems in the market that does well in all three areas. And what's more, they are so attentive in that you will get their response so quickly whenever you contact them. I operate a consulting practice and have gotten help from English Monitor on my clients' documents a number of times already. Myself and all our clients have been satisfied of their reliable and punctual service for reasonable prices, and I will be returning again and again for sure.

    5 star review  English Monitor helped me with the English in my research report - they put in a lot of effort helping me to fine tune the language and ensure it was of the highest standard. I've used other editing companies and it is fair to say that English Monitor really put in far more work than the others to ensure I was happy. I'll use them again for sure!
