Editing globally is what we do

Editing Globally did a great job editing and producing a complex £1.5 billion DFID framework proposal. We were nervous about selecting an editing team just days before deciding to bid, but we were fortunate to have found such a level-headed and organised editing and production team able to turn around hundreds of pages of detailed technical content with very tight timelines. Having Editing Globally staff based in North America and the UK allowed us to have around-the-clock support, further improving our experience and ultimately leading to a great final product for our client.

We are a group of experienced communications professionals who provide seamless and thorough editorial services to clients around the world.

We began Editing Globally to turn our individual strengths into a stronger collective by working collaboratively to provide our clients with clear and consistent editing that fits the brief every time.

We've been working with the Editing Globally team to meet the proofing needs of a global professional services firm. Their attention to detail, personable and professional approach and prompt communication are second to none. No matter what the document or how tight the deadline, Editing Globally can be trusted to get the job done accurately and swiftly. We'd be lost without them.

We can handle every stage of the editing process: manuscript evaluations, substantive, structural and stylistic copy-editing, formatting and design, translating, proofreading and project management, including interior layouts and websites.

We provide all levels of editorial service in our areas of expertise, which include academic, business, educational, legal, health and medical, medico-legal, international issues, hard sciences, fiction, and trade non-fiction.

We are skilled in working with a variety of manuscripts, including articles, journals, books, magazines, reports, dissertations and theses, presentations, conference papers, school reports, textbooks (from primary to higher education), websites, speeches, and technical manuals.
