Yes, we accept PDF documents only for Proofreading and Advanced Editing services.  We do not accept PDF files under Premium Editing as the format does not support the content restructuring offered under Premium Editing.

When submitting a PDF file for editing, please ensure that the text is double-spaced. As PDF documents are printed out and edited on paper using handwritten editing symbols, the double-spacing will help you to easily recognize and understand the editor’s suggestions.

Note that as PDF editing involves a few additional processes, the turnaround time is a little longer than for editing an MS Word file. Moreover, a 15% premium is applied to the fee. (If you need a faster turnaround time, or if you wish to avoid the premium fee, please submit an MS Word version of your document.) 

Once your assignment is completed, we scan the edited files and deliver them to you as PDF files. The final files show the editor's changes and suggestions. You are required to incorporate those changes in your main document.

We share below a sample of an edited PDF document:

Editing in MS Word is performed using Word’s Track Changes feature. This helps you to accept and reject the changes made by the editor very easily and saves your valuable time. You also save the 15% premium that is charged for editing PDF documents.

Note that if you wish for the editor to format your paper according to the requirements of a journal, this is best done with the MS Word format. Please consider all these factors when deciding the file type for your submission to Editage. We believe that the MS Word format is most advantageous because it supports all services levels—Proofreading, Advanced, and Premium; can be easily formatted to the journal’s requirements; saves time; and saves money too.
