ETE provides revision, correction and linguistic editing of research articles and scientific papers intended for publication in journals of international reputation
English Text Editing

Translations Group was established almost two decades ago by a team of translators and editors who had previously been collaborating for a number of years. After a long period of productive and rewarding work we decided to focus exclusively on our key strength in linguistic editing of academic and scientific papers under the name ‘English Text Editing’.

our services

Linguistic editing - We specialise in the revision, correction and linguistic editing of technically demanding texts and research articles intended for publication in journals of international reputation. For this we draw on our own rich experience of successful writing of books, scientific papers, research grant applications, administrative and quality control documents. The essential skills of using the right linguistic register and idiomatic expressions often place non-native English language speakers at a disadvantage in a modern competitive world of business and scientific research. We can help you over the linguistic barrier by revising your texts and offering suggestions for improving the structure and organisation of the text.

  • Ability to handle scientific, academic and technical papers
  • Efficient and professional turnaround by highly qualified editors
  • A high-quality service at highly competitive rates
