How does Pure English decide what to change when editing documents?

Methodology

Pure English has a set of editing principles and practices. These are the basis for our editing decisions and are derived from authoritative texts for the English language.

These editing principles and practices address issues of spelling, grammar, punctuation, usage, style and regional variation in the language.

Standard English style and usage conventions for the type of English you choose to write – British or American English – are used to edit your documents. If you do not explicitly choose a particular type of English, British English is used.

Scope

Pure English will edit the text in your entire document, unless you request only a part of your document to be edited, in which case, we will edit only the required section.
