About Pain in the English
Getting someone to proofread your document consistently and reliably is not easy. If you ask your friend or coworker as a favor, you can’t impose a deadline. If she is busy, she is not likely to get back to you quickly enough. If you ask her too many times, she will get tired of you asking. Even if you know a professional proofreader, she may not be available today. Even if you find a new proofreader, you would have to negotiate the price. If your document is short, not many proofreaders would be willing to spend the time to negotiate the terms, send you an invoice, and deposit your check, all for a small fee like twenty dollars. Her administrative overhead would be greater than the fee.
Pain in the English is designed to solve this problem. Even if you don’t frequently need a proofreader, you can count on us to get it done within 24 hours, even on weekends. Because our order placement and payment processing are automated, our proofreaders can focus on proofreading only. They get paid immediately upon completion.
We are based in New York City and most of our proofreaders are in the US but some are also in the UK. Our minimum price is a dollar, so, if you are concerned about the quality of our job, you can try us out with a short paragraph.
Thank you for reading this, and we look forward to reading your document.
