Business Editing and Proofreading Service FAQ

We proofread and edit business files of all types and match them to the appropriate writing editor.

Yes! We correct grammar as part of our business proofreading service.

Business proofreading and editing
Grammar, typographical errors, misspellings, punctuation, clarity, comma splices, sentence fragments, run-on sentences, subject-verb disagreement, and verb tense, flow, phrasing ambiguities, audience appropriateness, organization, structure, theme, rhetorical consistency, levels of diction, lexical register, rhythm, and colloquialisms.

Business formatting
Specific to your needs.

If you send your business editing in Microsoft Word format, we can return two copies to you when finished. One is the original with changes highlighted. The other is the final version.

All of our business editors have years of training as published authors, and professionals in various disciplines. We provide the right editor for your needs. We default to American English, APA publication style, and the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. We’re happy to use other styles and conventions. However, any deviations from these rules must be noted by the author beforehand to avoid re-editing.

No. The editing function has been a long-time feature and the files we send you are for a PC or Mac.

We much prefer Microsoft Word because of its Track Changes feature. However, if you check with us first, we support digital texts in a range of formats (e.g., Microsoft Word, Works, AppleWorks, Pages, Rich Text, and Open Office).

Our editors ensure that your business editing complies with your style requirements. Specify whether you are using APA, MLA, Chicago, CSE, either of the Canadian styles, Harvard, Turabian, International English, ASA, Australian, Vancouver, Oxford Style, or another citation style of your choosing.

A member of our business editing staff can usually respond within two to three hours. We complete most manuscripts within a few business days. An editor and proofreader will accept it only if we can have the finished business editing back to you before your deadline.

Proofreading and editing are approximately 1 cent per word; the exact price can be determined using our cost calculator. Formatting is approximately ½ a cent per word.

We currently accept PayPal, Zelle, SquareUp, Venmo, bank cards, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Visa, Visa Electron, Visa Debit, and Maestro. The method of payment is a secure system with industry standard 128-bit encryption. This is the premier form of encryption available for Internet transactions and is the same level of security used in cash machines (ATMs) and most retail stores. Please note: An account is not required to process your credit card and our staff never see your personal data.

The proofreading and editing rate is based on word count and your choice between proofreading and editing or formatting too. Unlike other business editing companies, we do not have confusing editing rates per page or vague quotes. We provide exact figures for editing services. Send us your file and specify editing and proofreading and whether you want formatting too.

MS Word has a feature that you can use to obtain a word count. Alternatively, send it to us. We will calculate the amount and send you an email with a link to your invoice and payment options. If you want to calculate it yourself, multiply the number of words in your business file times 0.013 for proofreading and editing or times 0.019 for proofreading, editing, and formatting. For instance: 30,000 x 0.013 = $390 [USD].

Our smallest charge is $25 [USD]. If you have a project with a word count that is shorter than the minimum, we may be able to work on it for you, but the charge would be $25 USD.

We reword individual sentences. We may rearrange sentences. We may offer suggestions to improve the organization of paragraphs and sections within your business document. Complete rewriting is not an option.

We consider the issues surrounding intellectual copyright and confidentiality to be crucial. Only your business editor and a managing editor have access to your business document. Each of our staff members is required to sign a copy of the confidentiality agreement, which ensures that under no circumstances can an employee share your business editing with anyone. If you require a separate non-disclosure agreement, contact us. Unless you request otherwise, all business editing and related files are deleted after sixty days. We do not sell, trade, transfer, rent or share ANY information with ANY other party. All business editing reviewed by our editors remain the intellectual property of you, the original author. In keeping with our strict confidentiality, we never release names or titles without prior consent. For further information, view our privacy policy.

We make use of the most powerful and updated security measures including the industry standard in encryption (128-bit secure socket layer). This is the highest level of security commercially available and is the same standard of security used in cash machines (ATMs) and by many retail stores. To protect your credit card information, we have partnered with Venmo, PayPal, and SquareUp to offer you the most trusted financial transaction systems on the Internet. The entire payment process is conducted through one of their secure websites. No banking information or credit card data is ever collected or stored by us.

You always maintain ownership and copyright. We make no claim on your copyright, and we do not require credit or acknowledgment beyond the fees for the services rendered. It is a commonly accepted practice for some writers to credit us as their editor and this is always appreciated.

All of our editors and proofreaders must, at a minimum: (a) be native speakers of English; (b) have at least five years of professional experience as a writing editor; and (c) provide samples of their writing, proofreading and editing. A typical editor has more than fifteen years of professional experience and is published in his or her chosen field.

We are confident that our business proofreading services are among the best in the industry. We are a professional company focused on you providing the best service possible. Each business document is proofread twice before returning it to you. If you are not completely satisfied, you can resubmit your business file for further editing/proofreading. We are committed to your satisfaction.

Yes, although we can nearly always tell when we read something, please specify which form of English you need when you place your order.

Business editors are available nearly twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Our administrative staff is available between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. CST (GMT −6); we typically answer messages within a few hours.

After looking at our FAQ, if you still have a question, its best to contact Client Services by email.

Even the best writers benefit from an impartial, professional and thorough look at their business documents. Our editors recognize things in your business file that become unnoticeable to you. After you have done several drafts, reviewing and revising, that familiarity with the business document results in your filling in missing text and skipping over errors when you read.

Your business file will be print-ready subject to the state of the project when submitted to us.

We edit all sorts of styles, dialects, special kinds of formatting and other types of creativity. If there is something you do not want us to alter, mention this when you email the business document.

Certainly you may explain things to your business editor. Once it arrives, your business document is quickly routed directly to a chief editor who is familiar with, and appreciates, your type of business. A client services representative will be happy to relay your comments and queries to your business editor and then send the answers back.

Any feedback you receive from your business editor is for the purpose of improving your work.

For greater parsimony, clarity, and flow; we reword individual sentences, may rearrange sentences, may offer suggestions to improve the organization of paragraphs and sections within your project, and may make other suggestions for you. Additionally, we protect you from plagiarism by not altering the content of your project. Along these lines, we also do not do fact checking.

Contact us directly with your business editing questions. One of our chief editors will be more than happy to discuss your business document with you and provide any additional information you may require.

Client Comments
When it comes to editing for me there is not other than Wordsharp Editing. I've had the pleasure of working with them for a number of years (I believe 8 years!) on sophisticated non-classified Homeland Security documents, academic work for my degree, along with personal papers. They are always ahead of schedule and that earns trust, frankly something not often found. I know when I send them a document I get it back professionally edited and moreover with sound recommendations for document improvements. It's a pleasure to do business with the crew at Wordsharp. If I write any more here I'll have to send it to them for editing.... I'd give six stars if available.

Tell my business editor thanks. He shaped up my portfolio something fierce.

I have just gone over the file and am extremely impressed. I appreciate your generous compliments about the article. You will be the one I will choose next time. Thanks

That is exactly what I needed. Thanks. I have recommended your services to many of my colleagues.

I really appreciate what you do. I certainly appreciate your feedback and your encouragement! Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am. Thanks.

I say every writer needs an editor. Had a 20,000-word technical document to be edited. Caught errors that I didn't! This is my new go to for business editing! Will be using this website in the future! Recommend them highly.

I am speechless. I am SO GRATEFUL for these edits and citations!!!!  Best Christmas present ever! Thank you and please let your team know how grateful I am. All the best for the holidays and the new year.

Thank you for such excellence from yourself and the team around you! I can truly recommend your service to anyone who would like their manuscript or writing to reach another level of excellence! Great service with great excellence! Everything is looking great and printed manuals.… Great stuff!!!

We need business manual editing and proofreading of non-native English content. We will also send you more content soon (e.g., blogs).

P.S. We already worked with you four years ago and we were very satisfied with your work.

I had a positive experience using this editing company. It made the greatest difference. Because of them, we're all the more confident that our customers are getting crisp, clean documents. Very affordable too.

I was happy with the editing. Thank you for editing my article.

Approximately 15 files were copyedited over a seven-month period. There was a great deal to work through. I did not know what to expect. I wish I had found them sooner. My book sounds a lot better and flows really well. They came through for me.

I have a small periodical publishing business. Truly outstanding and I will be glad to call on them again for my next publication. Have serious problems with my writing. Love you all. Service was reliable, prompt and better than expected. Recommend them to anyone seeking a company to proofread.
