A glimpse at what you would edit
You will be assigned papers of varying difficulty levels (in terms of English, subject matter expertise, and extent of revision needed) written by non-native speakers in either English or their native language (translated papers). These papers are written by what we believe constitute an eclectic group of authors and writers, i.e., we receive work from not only scientists, researchers, and students but also corporates, linguists, and common man trying to communicate in English—from the latest in cutting-edge technology to the timeless fascination with history and arts!
1) We examine your CV/resume and check whether your overall profile meets our requirements.
2) We send you a doctored editing sample designed to test your editing skills and subject matter expertise.
3) If selected, we present you with a contract, which includes a freelancer agreement, terms of service, and other relevant documents.
