What is professional "native English" editing?
These days, there are many freelance editors and proofreaders. Some sell their services for less than a penny a word. Some are in fact native speakers, though they lack experience (e.g., students or those who have never editing for publication). Many are from countries where English may be an “official” language, but it’s not spoken at home and it’s spoken with a local dialect (e.g., India, Singapore, the Philippines).
You may get lucky and find a gem. Or you may pay money only to have your English be inaccurate, unnatural, and full of grammatical mistakes.
Scize Editing is by Scize Group LLC, a registered company. It’s fully transparent. You can verify your scientific editor‘s qualifications based on public information.
By “non-native”, we mean anyone for whom English is not the first language spoken in the home country. For example, “true native English” is from inner-circle countries such as the US, UK, and Australia. “Non-native” refers to countries where English is widely used, but is not the first spoken language.
