At Enago, we take pride in providing superior editing services and delivering quality par excellence.
Enago’s Quality Team is driven by professional academic experts who understand customer needs, constantly review processes, and adopt innovate practices to surpass current industry standards. We impart the same values to our editing staff through our extensive training and quality check programs.
Editor Quality Management System (EQMS)
While ISO guarantees the quality of our services at a process level, we have an editing quality management system in place to manage the quality standards of the edited document.
Quality check of every document before delivery
Quality assurance through checking of a statistically significant sample of the whole text to ensure that company standards are met
As there are no standards in the editing industry to judge the quality of the edited text, we have developed an in-house Quality Assurance (QA) model adapted from the LISA QA model, which is used by translation giants around the world. In our QA model, we determine defects in the edited output by considering the international standards for both journal publication and service description. Using the quality score of each document, we grade our editors on a percentage scale, and only editors who consistently cross a threshold of 95% are assigned editorial assignments.
We focus on providing consistent and good quality for every assignment and take client complaints seriously. We guarantee that the quality of the edited document will be of international standards. In case a client feels that the editing is not in line with the service definition or has received unfavorable reviewer comments on the language quality, he/she can approach our complaint resolution team. The process for complaint resolution is as follows:

What Happens If You Are Unhappy with Our Quality?
The following process is meant for authors who are not satisfied with the quality of editing:
Step 1Please raise a complaint with our quality department by an e-mail.
Step 2An immediate enquiry is done for the complaints we receive. The quality checkers check and determine the validity of the complaints by considering each and every possibility.
Step 3The result of the quality check is shared with you. In case of a valid complaint, i.e., an error from Enago, we take immediate action at three levels:
Level 1: According to the complaint, one of the following options is offered:
a. Free re-editingb. Offer discountc. Total refund
Level 2: Correction at the editors’ end
Based on the criticality of the error, we may stop using the editor or appoint a third senior editor to review the work.
Level 3: ISO Management level
we determine the root cause and take steps to ensure the same mistake is not repeated.
A Scientific Approach To Quality
Our superior quality checks are a result of our mathematical and scientific approach to solving problems. In this approach, we evaluate each manuscript’s quality and an editor’s performance through a metric called error free words (EFW). EFW was conceptualized by Enago and presents a rational check on any manuscript.
The quality team is responsible for monitoring the performance of editors. It is a dedicated team consisting of our most experienced and skilled editors.

For all the quality complaints that we receive, we try to obtain the real feedback from the clients. We analyze how satisfied the clients were with our offered solutions. Here are some recent statistics of our survey on quality redressal system:
