Team

Everyone has a gift. Words are ours.

Since 2009, Re:word has been keeping readers reading, listeners listening, viewers viewing, users using and people buying. Our point of difference is the full-service offering of copywriting, content writing, copyediting, proofreading and translation. We can jump in at any point of your project and do whatever needs to be done.

Bottom line: we exist to make writing better — starting with yours.

Our process

How we work

We pair writers and editors together in teams so you get a left- and right-brained perspective on your projects. It comes through in the work: inspired editing; tight writing; nuanced translation.

It also comes through in the relationship. Our writers, editors and translators work well together because they bring different specialties to the same skill. And they literally finish each other’s sentences.

Writing engagements

We start with a simple questionnaire, put together specifically for your project. It helps us crystallize our thinking by helping you crystallize yours. Once we have what we need, we’ll do the interviews and research and present a first draft with two to three different styles. For bigger projects, we’ll present a few paragraphs in the first draft and flesh it out from there.

We typically charge per project.

Editing/Proofreading engagements

To get us working, call or email with your request, any files, available style guides or pertinent instructions, and the deadlines. We’ll be up front if we can’t meet them. For Word files, we’ll track our changes so you can see exactly what we’ve done. If we’re given a PDF to edit, we’ll return with comments in sticky notes.

We typically charge per hour.

Translation engagements

We ask for any preferences up front and we’ll always default to asking over assuming. We like to get it right the first time, and we ensure that with a post-translation proofread every time.

We typically charge per source word.

Every piece gets at least two sets of eyes on it before it gets back to you.
