specializes in the editing of English documents for businesses and for individuals.
EditFast is wholly owned and operated by me, Robert Kidd. I have been a document
editor for 17 years with experience in a wide variety of fields. For more information
on my editing and other work experience see my personal
letter and resume.
EditFast was conceived late one night 17 years ago while working to a deadline
on several documents. The workload was tremendous at that time so the idea to
locate other qualified editors to help me was a natural occurrence and was acted
upon the next day. Originally, the plan was to pass on to freelance editors
the extra work which I could not handle. The idea gradually expanded and I began
to think of a place where editors could come to discuss editing and writing
issues as well as have access to resources which would propel their career and
help them gain new clients.
Aside from editing skills, a talent with the English language, reliability,
and professionalism, the one quality I look for in a professional editor is
the ability to envision the underlying purpose of a client's documents. This
is the key to the success of EditFast, and fundamental to the high quality work
produced by the EditFast team of editors and proofreaders.
I should also add that, after signing up and going through our rigorous screening
process and testing procedures, all our editors, proofreaders, and writers must
agree to a non-disclosure agreement prohibiting them from disclosing the contents
of your documents to anyone without your approval.
Q: What qualifications do EditFast's
editors, writers, and proofreaders possess?
A: All EditFast freelance editors, proofreaders,
writers, and copy editors are professionally qualified and tested and have a
degree from a recognized university. Our screening procedure also includes testing
for editing, writing, and proofreading skills using the Prentice
Hall test for proofreaders.
During the sign-up procedure we conduct a close examination of references,
past experience, and writing samples. On top of that, the work of each editor
receives an ongoing examination; their editing performance is assessed and a
record is maintained in their personal profile. Feedback
provided by you as well as my personal observation of every editing, writing
or proofreading project that leaves EditFast is recorded and kept in a personal
profile maintained for each editor and constantly referred to when choosing
the right person to edit your documents.
Q: Can I choose my own proofreaders?
A: Yes you can. Click
here to begin your search. You can also simply submit
your document and let us choose the appropriate editor according to your
Whether your editing or proofreading project is small, large, technical, Web-based,
business related, or personal, you will always have a choice of how you want
to proceed with the project.
When you submit your document for an estimate
you receive a confirmation email. In that email there is a link that will take
you to your personalized Registered Clients' Area. There you have numerous
options to choose from. Using the Editor Search function you can search among
the 1,452 (as of this morning,
) professional editors, writers, and proofreaders in the EditFast database to
find the editor who has the qualifications you seek.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: There are so many variables involved in the
editing and writing process that, in order to give you a fair estimate on the
cost of editing your document, we need to see it first. Estimates are not given
out before we actually take a look. However, after you submit
your document an estimate will be returned to you immediately. Estimates
are free, of course.
