Education Companies Need Professional Editing

As a publisher of educational content, you know how critical it is for your written materials to look professional.

Whether you’re creating content for a new K–12 English language arts and math curriculum, building out course content for online learning, or developing a professional education program, your subject matter authority will appear questionable if your text contains errors or unclear writing.

The consequences could be disastrous.

You need your text reviewed by copy editors. But many freelancers are unreliable to work with or even unknowledgeable when it comes to best practices in instructional design. And for most organizations, hiring an in-house copy editor—much less a whole team of copy editors specializing in your industry—is financially out of reach.

Plus, many copy editing services don’t provide the individualized attention, style consistency, and overall reliability to meet your needs.

Until now…

How Super Copy Editors Can Help Your Educational Materials Look Amazing

Our team of proven, professional copy editors offers combined proofreading and copy editing services that align with your educational standards.

We understand the unique challenges facing education companies, school districts, and curriculum designers. We also understand just how important it is for your written materials to be not just grammatically correct and error-free, but also logical, grade- and age-appropriate, and captivating for learners.

The fresh set of eyes you’ll get when you work with an outside copy editor means a new perspective and original feedback on your marketing materials.

Here are just a few education copy editing areas in which we specialize:

Why Work With Super Copy Editors?

Not all copy editing services are created equal. Here’s how we stand out from other vendors.

Never Again Miss a Deadline
If we don’t deliver it on time, you don’t have to pay for it—simple. For you, that means no more delays, no more blown deadlines, and no more struggling just to catch up.
Reduce Headaches and Save Money
Get all the benefits of a freelance team (flexibility, affordability), PLUS all the perks of an in-house staff (knowledgeable, aligned with your team, deadline-driven).
It’s Still Your Writing (Only Better)
We take pride in getting to know each of our clients so we can offer thoughtful edits that truly align with the needs of your audience and your organization.
Consistency You Can Rely On
We can develop a custom style sheet, keeping your unique learning framework top of mind. That means one consistent style across all written materials, no matter the writer or editor.
Big-Picture Editing Beyond Just Typos

Of course, proper spelling and punctuation are key for any written materials. But much more is required for creating high-quality, immersive, learner-first educational content. That’s why we also evaluate your copy on word choice, consistency, conciseness, sentence structure, cross-checking learning standards, flagging unclear or irrelevant content, and more.

CASE STUDY

How We Helped EL Education Produce a Top-Quality Curriculum

EL Education needed regular copy editing of their curriculum materials. They were overwhelmed with large amounts of text, and their previous freelance copy editor was both too expensive and not flexible enough to take on the daily volume of content. Here’s how we helped them excel.

Avoid Freelancer or Costly Hiring Headaches

While freelancers offer flexibility when it comes to proofreading services, their loose contract terms mean you’re exposed to the risk of them flaking out at any point—leaving your marketing department stranded and scrambling to meet deadlines.

But in-house proofreaders can be just as costly. In fact, the Society of Human Resources Management found that the average time spent on finding a new employee was around 42 days. It’s no wonder they found the average cost of hiring an employee comes out to $4,129.

When you partner with Super Copy Editors, we will blend in seamlessly with your team and processes with minimal ramp-up time.

We can customize our pricing to suit your company’s specific needs, whether you need professional copy editing for a K–12 curriculum that spans an entire school year or you just need a final proofread on a few critical training materials. With us, you’ll save time hiring while avoiding extra expenses like monthly minimum charges or hidden fees.

Plus, our On-Time Guarantee provides you the peace of mind knowing you’ll never be left empty-handed as your deadlines approach.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Education Copy Editing Services

What’s included with your education copy editing and proofreading services?

We offer these standard services (and more):

  • Spelling
  • Punctuation
  • Grammar
  • Word choice
  • Conciseness
  • Sentence structure and flow
  • Consistency in style and voice
  • Revising as needed for clarity
  • Ensuring your message resonates

This goes well beyond what most proofreading services offer—unless you pay them extra. Of course, when your copy has been finalized and just needs a straightforward careful proofread for any major errors, we can do that too—with finesse.

How much do you charge?

Our pricing starts at $80 per hour for most education-related proofreading or copy editing projects. We understand that, especially when it comes to months-long curriculum projects, you need maximum flexibility, so we are happy to customize our pricing and terms to suit your specific needs.

Remember, when you hire Super Copy Editors, you’ll get not only highly accurate copy editing or proofreading, but also individual attention—which larger editing services cannot or will not give you.

Which file formats can you work in?

We can handle most common file formats, such as:

  • Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx)
  • Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt, .pptx)
  • JPG
  • GIFs
  • Rich text format (.rtf)
  • Plain text (.txt)
  • Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)
  • Google Docs
  • Google Slides

We’re also more than happy to review website text or even digital modules for you.

Which style do you use?

We can adjust to any specific style you require. We’re very experienced with MLA style, Chicago Manual of Style, and more. For K–12 curriculum projects, we usually recommend following the clean and simple Associated Press Stylebook, but ultimately you get to decide.

If you have a custom in-house style, we’ll learn it like nobody’s business—and we won’t ever charge you some silly “style guide reading” fee, like other editing services do. Once we begin working with you regularly, we’ll even begin compiling a personalized style guide for you so that we can keep everything consistent going forward. That’s a free service.

I need you to keep my project confidential. Can you do this?

Absolutely. We never share your private information. In addition, we regularly train our editors in current best practices for maintaining confidentiality and protecting your information. It’s very important to us because we know it’s important to you.

Tell me more about your 100% On-Time Guarantee.

We believe that Super Copy Editors is the only editing service to offer a 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee warranting that we will deliver your documents back to you exactly when we say we will, and not a minute later. This (and our individual attention) is what truly sets us apart.

Here is our On-Time Guarantee:

“We will complete your project on or before the agreed-upon time, or you do not have to pay us for that project. If your project is large and we split it into milestones (for example, ‘the first five modules by Monday at 3 p.m.’), you do not have to pay us for any milestone that we did not complete on time.”

Do you guarantee the quality of your copy editing?

If you are not 100% satisfied with our work, for any reason at all, we will have another editor from Super Copy Editors read the document again for no extra charge when you request this within 10 days of receiving it from us.

“I have nothing but fantastic things to say about Super Copy Editors. The entire team is extremely professional and on top of all deadlines to ensure that every material meets the highest of standards. Their work has taken our curriculum to the next level.”

—Maddy Levine, Director of Academic Operations, Cadence Learning

  • If you aren’t satisfied with our deliverables, we’ll work with you until you’re happy with the end product.
