English Language Editing

My English language editing service is unique because it combines 3 distinct revision processes—line editing, copyediting, and proofreading—into 1 premium package. You’ll save significant time and money by taking advantage of this comprehensive service; I’ll clean up every aspect of your writing so you don’t have to.

Line editing, copyediting, and proofreading in any discipline

I’ll complete a comprehensive, 3-part revision of your document to make your writing clear and powerful.

No matter the subject area, high-quality writing will boost your confidence and scholarly authority. In academia, pristine communication increases your chances of manuscript acceptance, publication, and a thriving research career. English language editing will transform your writing into crisp, natural-sounding prose suitable for any professional setting.

What’s included

Line editing, copyediting, and proofreading, consisting of

  • thorough revisions to content, organization, syntax, word choice, grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. (A top-to-bottom “deep cleaning” of your work to make sure your message comes across crystal clear.)
  • improved readability through clarity, conciseness, and cohesion.
  • supplementary written comments that highlight areas for clarification, suggestions for expansion, and what you’ve done especially well.
  • unlimited email, text, and voice support Monday through Friday.

Automated dictation

  • Full playback of your document followed by a final written edit to ensure flow.
    • The document is read aloud via a digital program as I listen and make final corrections so your work reads smoothly and naturally.

2 versions of your document

  • A revised copy that showcases changes and comments so you can see exactly what’s been modified.
  • A clean copy that’s ready to print.


Language editing is priced according to word count and turnaround time. Standard rates typically start around $0.05/word.

Hourly arrangements are available upon request. I am also open to ongoing/contract arrangements with academic organizations, presses, and scholarly journals.

I’ve used Taryn’s services for over three years. The editing is impeccable, and the advice for improvement on my papers is always welcomed. There has not been a time that I have been disappointed; there are only times when I’m overwhelmed by the great, prompt service provided. You can’t go wrong with these services. I highly recommend Taryn to anyone who needs writing, editing, or résumé help. My brother received help on his résumé and got the job he was interested in.
