Although we do not write academic content for you, your editor will make suggestions, comments, and recommendations for how you can add text and improve your content, if necessary.

Whether you are persuading or arguing, presenting a point of view, summarizing the points of another text, evaluating, analyzing, investigating, or simply telling a story, your essay needs: an introduction that lays out your purpose, content that is organized and direct, and an insightful conclusion.

You have done the research, explored the theme, and drafted a paper that expresses your ideas. But is your essay truly finished? There may be problems in your work that you have overlooked.

We will return two copies of your essay: a marked copy with all corrections and comments showing and a revised copy that has the corrections cleanly integrated and comments removed. Please note that the revised copy will NOT be ready to submit to your professor! You should review and address any comments or suggestions the editor has made. For example, the reference list may need additional information, or some paragraphs might require more details.

WordsRU will not "close the door" on you once the major editing has been completed. Your editor will remain available to answer questions, clarify comments, and review brief passages that you revise. Furthermore, the chief editor oversees every step of the editing process, and is always available for any questions or concerns you may have.

Frequently asked questions

  • I want my essay to sound more professional and more academic. Can you do this and still have it sound like me?

    Yes! Our editors identify your unique style and they will improve your English usage without changing your voice. This means that your work will sound more formal, and your personality will still shine through!

  • If I go ahead and have my essay edited, can you guarantee that I will pass?

    Only your professor or supervisor can predict the outcome of your paper. However, we guarantee that you will have a far greater chance of success once your essay has been edited by WordsRU.

  • My paper is due right away! How long will it take to edit?

    For jobs less than 5,000 words, we have a 48-hour deadline guarantee from the time of receiving your payment. If your deadline is shorter than that, we offer expedited service (for an additional fee). The chief editor will work with you to establish a deadline that works for you and allows your editor to conduct a thorough and complete edit.

  • I'm already paying for tuition, books...you name it! Is editing expensive?

    WordsRU understands how expensive being a student can be, so the chief editor will always offer you the best price possible! We know that having your essay edited is very important to your future success, so our editing services offer a quality edit for your money.

  • What if I have questions after the editor returns my essay?

    After the edit is completed, you are welcome to ask any questions or voice any concerns you may have. Your editor will remain available to answer questions, explain any comments or recommendations, and even review specific passages that you have revised, based on the edit.

  • My professor has very strict rules related to the assignment. Will the editor help me to make sure that I've addressed everything in the assignment?

    If you let the WordsRU chief editor know about any particular issues or concerns you want for the edit to address, we will factor those concerns into your job. If you have been given assignment guidelines, please give them to us from the start. This way, your editor can make sure that your essay fulfills all the requirements.

  • I need a few references added, but I'm in a hurry. I can supply the websites, and all you have to do is look them up and add them. Is this included in your editing service?

    WordsRU has a very firm policy when it comes to academic papers. We will not conduct research, write, add to, or alter content, or conduct data analyses. We believe that students' work should be their own. If you have incomplete references, your editor can point out what information is needed so that you can look it up and add it, but your editor will not assemble your references for you.

  • Can I talk to a live person?

    Absolutely! The chief editor is available both by phone and through the message feature on the job page you create. Your editor will be available through the message feature only, but our editors are very prompt in answering your messages. Plus, the chief editor stays in the background throughout the entire process, from your initial contact with WordsRU through completion of the job, and even if you need more editing in the future!
