Possibility of a guaranteed monthly income while freelancing:
Apart from offering work in the typical freelancing manner, we also offer opportunities that guarantee a minimum monthly/annual income, along with the possibility of an additional annual bonus (monetary), based on your performance.
A smooth performance-driven progression curve with an effective feedback mechanism:
This ensures that the expectation mismatch is nearly zero. In the past, the strong professional bonding with our freelance editors has also led to mutual recommendations-a definite plus factor!
A rewarding experience, both monetarily and intellectually:
You will get the opportunity to apply your domain knowledge and skills to help non-native authors present their work to the world through esteemed journals and renowned conferences, with the flexibility of timings dedicated to editing.

Qualities we look for in our freelance editors
Proficiency and competence in the most widely spoken language across the world-English!

A glimpse at what you would edit
You will be assigned papers of varying difficulty levels (in terms of English, subject matter expertise, and the extent of revision needed) written by non-native speakers in either English or their native language (translated papers). These papers written by what we believe constitute an eclectic group of authors and writers, i.e., we receive work from not only scientists, researchers, and students but also corporates, linguists, and the common man trying to communicate in English--from the latest in cutting-edge technology to the timeless fascination with history and arts!

Our freelance editors should ensure
Immaculate grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and word choice
Flow, transition, correct terminology, correctness of content, and coherence
Appropriate manuscript format that conforms to academic conventions in terms of citation style, layout, section headings, and tense usage
