Quote

Editing should be, especially in the case of old writers, a counseling rather than a collaborating task. The tendency of the writer-editor to collaborate is natural, but he should say to himself, "How can I help this writer to say it better in his own style?" and avoid, "How can I show him how I would write it, if it were my piece?"

Testimonial

The editing services that I received exceeded my expectations on every level, from pricing to professionalism! I was amazed at the turn-around time, which was a few days for the entire document, and less than a day and a half for revisions! Wow! I investigated many editing companies, and Documedic had by far the lowest cost and the most impressive interaction with the staff. However, the most impressive aspect was the level of revisions that I received. It was obvious the level of care and review that went into every single sentence!!! I would highly recommend Documedic!
