Our Story

One Qualified Editor

Launched in November 2016, Textamend was founded on the principle that assigning clients to one qualified editor is the best way to ensure quality products at all times, while building a strong editor/client relationship. As a result, when you make a purchase, Hal, the Founder and CEO of Textamend, will be the sole reader, editor, and writer with whom you will work.

Hal earned his B.A. from Williams College, which consistently ranks as the U.S. News & World Report Top Liberal Arts College. After beginning as a highly-rated and in-demand freelance editor, Hal began The Textamend Editing Company in 2016. Ever since, he has edited clients' literary projects, educational essays, applications, resumés, business articles and documents, while offering consulting services to students through university application processes. Moreover, he has established himself as an international editor, having worked with clients in 63 countries as of today. Unlike so many websites and platforms nowadays, Hal builds relationships with his clients, to add an element of trust back to freelancing. It is for that reason that a large majority of the Textamend client base is composed of returning clients. Check out a recent article on why Textamend is incredibly unique, or continue reading to see how Textamend first began

Simple Beginnings

The Textamend origin story is quite an interesting one, and if you grant this personal testimony a few minutes of your time, I believe you will discover why Textamend stands out in the document editing and proofreading industry as a uniquely client-oriented and high-quality company.

When I first began as a freelancer on the Fiverr platform, the majority of my work was in a completely different field—voiceover work. However, after joining the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) after a few lucky breaks in August 2016—for I am an actor—I could no longer produce voiceovers with non-union contracts. Thus, to put my B.A. from Williams College to good use, I began assisting clients with their document editing and proofreading needs. 

To my surprise, I was soon working with hundreds of clients monthly, and began amassing immensely high ratings. These clients often told me that they had previously worked with other editors through private practices and freelancing platforms, and were shocked by how terrible these other services frequently were. Thus, I conducted some investigations of my own, and discovered that many editors on both freelance platforms and in private practices barely have a command of the English language. Unfortunately, as it turns out, many document service websites are actually run by individuals with limited English knowledge, hoping to make a quick buck from unsuspecting customers. Furthermore, even some of the largest editing companies outsource their orders, occasionally producing poor-quality results. 

Thus, Textamend was born. Founded in November 2016, Textamend was founded on the principle that assigning clients to one qualified editor is often the best way to ensure quality products at all times, while building a strong editor/client relationship. As a result, when you make a purchase through Textamend, I am the sole reader, editor, and writer with whom you will work.

You've found your way to Textamend because you need document assistance. Fortunately, I have worked with a multitude of authors, corporations, students, small businesses, educational institutions, playwrights, publishers, and content-creators across the globe. Not many editors and writers can say that they've worked with Fortune 500 companies and published authors, while simultaneously assisting students with academic and application documents. 

Unlike so many websites and platforms nowadays, I prefer to limit my order queue so that I can build relationships with my clients. It is for that reason that a large majority of my client base is composed of returning clients. Furthermore, I always prioritize quality, and take on a limited number of projects at a time. Thus, each Textamend service option contains a limited purchase quantity at any given time; when reached, the checkout process closes, and I cease accepting new orders. Of course, when returning clients are in a bind, I will always squeeze them in!

Welcome to Textamend, where quality products and customer satisfaction are constant priorities. Let's get to work.

 

Sincerely,

Hal E.
Founder and Lead Editor, Textamend
