Pricing


At Exceptional English, we understand that to satisfy our customers, we must deliver in two very important areas – quality and price. Our editors work very hard to ensure our quality is always top-notch, and our reasonable rates speak for themselves.

If your document is text-only, we will determine the level of editing required and send you a price quotation based on your document’s word count. We divide all submissions into one of four groups:

Proofreading

These documents are well organized with generally acceptable grammar and style. They require just a gentle polish of the existing text. Your editor will comb your work for problems with grammar, punctuation, format, and spelling, making all necessary corrections. During this process, your editor will use the Track Changes feature in Microsoft Word so that you can see all the changes that have been made.

Editing

These documents require a more in-depth examination and revision. In addition to correction of small common errors, these documents require limited reorganization of the text to clarify expression.

Your editor will also proofread the final work to ensure that it is free of grammar, punctuation, format, and spelling mistakes. During this process, your editor will use the Track Changes feature in Microsoft Word so that you can see all the changes that have been made.

Editing typically takes three to four times longer than simple proofreading.

Heavy Editing

These documents require intensive review and major reorganization. Often entire sections of text must be completely rewritten. During this process, our managing editor may contact you with questions from your editor so as to ensure that the intended meaning is not altered as the document is rewritten.

Your editor will also proofread the final work to ensure that it is free of grammar, punctuation, format, and spelling mistakes. During this process, your editor will use the Track Changes feature in Microsoft Word so that you can see all the changes that have been made.

Heavy editing typically takes eight to ten times longer than simple proofreading.

Admission Essay Editing

When editing an admission essay, your editor needs to do much more than simply “edit” your statement. Our editors have years of experience helping students from around the world gain admission into some of the most prestigious universities and professional programs in the United States and Great Britain. This experience has taught us that an admission essay must be written in such a way to stand out from the formidable competition. Your editor will improve the power and language of your writing while maintaining your personal voice. The investment that you will make to have this critical document edited has the potential to be the best decision that you will ever make.
