Frequently Asked Questions

How do I pay?2017-11-18T05:56:13+00:00

Payments can be made either by PayPal or Direct Bank Deposit, details of which are provided on the invoice sent upon completion of the project, and the document is returned to the client once payment has been received.

*Please note that a small deposit is required for larger projects.

Do ESL papers take longer to edit?2017-11-18T05:48:49+00:00

Yes, ESL papers usually take longer to edit, and this will depend on the stage of the draft (i.e. whether or not the paper has been previously checked by an academic supervisor). For this reason you will need to submit sample pages for an accurate quotation.

How long will it take for my thesis to be edited?2017-11-18T05:56:38+00:00

Generally around 7-10 days for an MA thesis and 14 days for a PhD dissertation.

How long do smaller projects take to edit?2017-11-18T05:50:04+00:00

The turnaround time for smaller jobs, such as brochures and menus, can be as little as 24 hours. Or, around 1-3 days for a 2,000-word essay for example.

Can I request an expedited edit of my thesis?2017-11-18T05:50:53+00:00

Not usually. Annette provides a personalised and meticulous service, and does not compromise on quality.

What method is used to edit my project?2017-11-18T05:52:01+00:00

Editing is done digitally on a Word document using the Track Changes function. This is the most expedient and thorough method, as there is scope for comments and suggestions.

Can I send a hard copy to be marked-up manually?2017-11-18T05:53:35+00:00

Yes you can. You can email or mail the document and the fully marked-up hard copy will be scanned and emailed back to you; larger documents will be returned by post or courier. Printing and postage costs will be added to your invoice.

Does EastWest Editing convert documents from one form of English to another?2017-11-18T05:54:26+00:00

Yes, this is called localisation. It is common for clients to request Australian and/or British English to be adapted for American markets, and vice versa. Other lexical variants of English, including Canadian, South African and New Zealand, can be adapted. Localisation not only involves word spellings, but word usage as well. For instance, the words garden and yard have opposite meanings in Canada and North America.
