Aaron is the best editor!

I live in Zürich and needed to have my cooking book "The Food Is Ready" , edited in english before I publish it. So I decided to sent the manuscript to Paper True and I can only tell that I was really impress when I saw the work they did. Aaron my Editor has correct the language and grammar errors. He has done a terrific work improving phrasing and consistency of my book. If you are looking for a serious company I can really recommend Paper True. And "they are allways there available if you have any questions"

An amazing job!

As a sixteen years old Danish girl I must admit finding the right editor was hard, but I found THE one ;)
Amazing service and a welcoming chat on the website! I love the detailed comments and feedback on the tracked document :) They really did a good job at making my debut novel a lot better while still keeping my style of writing!
Much love from Denmark <3

Thank you Angie and Sharon

Many thanks for thoroughly and analytically editing my manuscript. I really appreciate your suggestions and encouraging comments. This novel was my attempt to learn how to become a writer. Meantime with this project (putting together prose and lyrics, plus composing the music) eventually became too colossal to grasp alone. Nevertheless, I was determined to finish it off. I set a deadline for myself as 15th September 2017. I was lucky to come across to PaperTrue website and I am greatly honored by the work you, my editors have done for me. I will go through your suggestions and comments, also I will “kill a few of my darlings” to complete the novel.
I have already started writing my new story. This one is about two young boys, (12 and 14 years old cousins) of an elite Nazi family in Berlin. The story takes them by an accident to Britain at the beginning of Second World War. There, their lives completely change and transform. Hopefully I will finish it next year, around late spring. Of course, I will send the manuscript to you to edit it.
Many, many thanks for your encouragement! If ever (keep the fingers cross!) my novel become published, I will certainly acknowledge PaperTrue and you, my editors. If you like me using your surnames, I would be delighted to put them also there.

Short stories proofread - excellent service.

I sent six short stories to be proofread and I was very pleased with the communication, professionalism and turnaround. What pleased me most was that there were some helpful suggestions in amongst the "standard" proofreading comments which enabled me to restructure a sentence or make a sentence flow in a better way. In addition, they were very motivating in their overall comments on my work. Of course it is up to the author to decide which comments to take on board, and although I did not take up every suggestion I can honestly say that those that I did take up improved every story and they were also then structurally good and grammatically correct. I will be using them again.

Short Story Editing

I have been working on a short story for a while, put it through several drafts, and had a few close friends with a critical eye give their input as well. Paper True's editors helped me catch mistakes that grammatically competent friends had missed in addition to myself. Their prompt and professional feedback gave me confidence in their work.

Bernd Kroger google reviews rating verified

Thorough and competent

I used the services of papertrue for proofreading of a book on a historic topic. The result was excellent and I'm really pleased. The editor not only corrected the spelling and typical "German" errors, but also gave few but important hints on some misleading expressions. The whole procedure was easy, affordable and in time. Can highly recommend papertrue and will use the service again.

Fantastic Edition

PaperTrue edited my children's book manuscript. Their comments were very useful to go beyong simple grammar and pounctuation. It helped me to improve the story and the narration as well as dialogs.

Matt B google reviews rating verified

Very thorough and timely

I sent my novel in for an edit, and PaperTrue was thorough: finding inconsistencies in the prose, enhancing the wording were two of their services that impressed me.

Excellent Service

I have received my story edited far above my expectations.
The edit is very professional and thorough, with more than acceptable suggestions that made my story flow beautifully. The editor is Susan and I wish to thank her for her work and her kind and encouraging words.
I also wish to thank your staff on the chat line who have answered my questions in a very professional and friendly way.
I would definitely recommend PaperTrue to anyone who needs professional and prompt service.

Dear Rebecca (from Paper True)

Dear Rebecca (from Paper True)

I have spent the last month editing my first novel 'Sunspots', and I have now finally made all the adjustments that you told me to make. I took every single piece of advice you gave me to improve my work. I would just like to say thank you so much for the incredible job you have done. It is clear you must have worked incredibly hard into the early hours to get my book back to me in the time frame you did. Thank you so much for your critique. Up until I read your summary of what you thought of the content of my book, I had no idea how good it was. For you to call it 'beautiful' and a potential 'masterpiece', it has really given me the confidence to try and get my novel published. Even though I know the stats are against me, I now have the determination going forward. You came up with so many excellent ideas for improving 'Sunspots'. I think you have turned a good book into a great book. It was worth every penny of the fee that I paid. I took a risk and it really paid off. It was apparent that you must have read my book all the way through at least twice.
If you have any hints or tips on how to improve my chances of getting a publisher please let me know. I'd be willing to negotiate a fee for any extra help or knowledge you have.

I would highly recommend yourself and 'Paper True' to anyone who has spent a large chunk of their life writing a novel or any other piece of work. I made some stipulations regarding the kind of person I wanted to critique my work before I handed over the fee. I feel I was rewarded with the exact right person

Kind regards
