Every writer – even a native speaker — can benefit from an editor. EnglishBCS editors will help you with organization, grammar, vocabulary, spelling, capitalization, and punctuation so that your message comes through clearly and professionally.
Perhaps you are close to submitting your PhD dissertation, but your advisor has told you to “clean up the language.”
Or perhaps you want to submit an article to a journal for publication, but are afraid it will be rejected because of superficial language errors. Maybe you are a working professional who has written an important document (such as a résumé or report), and you need it to look its best. We can help.
The editors of EnglishBCS specialize in texts written by non-native speakers of English, who are also called multilingual writers. We have studied foreign languages and taught ESL composition courses, so we understand the difficulty you face. In addition to making corrections, the editors will note patterns of errors. We will explain recurring linguistic errors to the author so that the editing experience becomes a language learning experience.
EnglishBCS editors will never write a paper for you; our goal is to make you a better writer.
Note: EnglishBCS editors are generalists, not specialists in any field other than the field she or he studied. For questions about content, you will need to consult someone in your field.
