How we strive to be better than other communications services
There are numerous on-line services that offer editing and revising of academic manuscripts. We strive to be different--and better--because our primary mission is to educate about clear and effective communication, not simply to run an editing service. Thus we always provide in-depth comments in the documents that we revise or translate for you. Our objective is to give you communication tools that can help you in the future.

We also differ from many other editing services because we are highly experienced researchers with postdoctoral experience, several publications in international journals, and successful grant applications. In addition, we have worked for several years as writing teachers. These attributes may make our feedback more valuable to you than that of the many editing services that rely on graduate students and junior PhD researchers.
