Japanese Editing

Different levels of service, to meet your needs and budget

Japanese Editing

Our goal when editing your manuscript is for readers to understand your work clearly and easily. This allows them to focus on the importance of your message, rather than on the language in which it is written.

Most of our native-speaking editors have advanced degrees (e.g., MD, PhD, PharmD, MEng, MSc, and MA) or professional licenses and are published authors themselves. All are excellent writers, and you can request that a specific editor or proofreader handle your work. This ensures your manuscript will have the right 'look and feel' for readers in your specialist field.

To meet your needs and your budget, we offer different levels of editing service. Opt for our EXPRESS service if you are in a hurry.

  • You have the opportunity to clarify specific editorial changes with your proofreader during a free proof check before submission.

Recommended for authors who are largely proficient in writing up their research in Japanese and require the text to be "grammar-checked" only.
