“But this one goes to 11”

Chances are, at some point in your life, you will be looking for a proofreading or editing service. You have this really important report coming up, a resume that needs to be just perfect, a PowerPoint you can’t afford to be wrong, or even an email you’re sending out to 500 of your closest friends. So, you turn to your friends or colleagues for help – or go online and end up on a website like Wordy.com.

Now, naturally, your question is what makes Wordy different? What defines our service, when comparing with similar services out there? Continue reading

Give your writing some credit and save up to 15%

Based on a lot of feedback, we are changing our monthly subscription model to pay-as-you-go credits:

  • Credits last one full year
  • Credits save you up to 15% on every order
  • Credits come in different packages
  • Credits can be topped off with one click when you need to

Why credits? Because, like most people, you probably have pretty irregular needs for copy-editing and you’re not all that keen on seeing your account reset every month. Now you won’t. Simply go to:

Wordy editors are constantly outdoing themselves, which means pick-up times are now consistently under 3 minutes (and in many cases under 1 minute) while the turn-around time for 400 words is 20-33 minutes.

Looking forward to seeing you on Wordy.

Integration of copy-editing in any publishing workflow

One of the key features of Wordy is the possibility to integrate professional human copy-editing in any publishing workflow. Wordy’s open application programming interface (API) makes it possible for all third-party developers to make real human Wordy copy-editing available on their specific platform.

Due to the immense number of publishing platforms, the API must adhere to at least two different scenarios: the direct payment option, where users make transactions directly with Wordy, and the indirect payment option, where uses are already running a subscription-based account with their platform provider. Integrating Wordy into these two scenarios results in a few very interesting design possibilities.

Meet Wordy

Wordy was conceived by Anders Schepelern in December 2008. As an award winning copywriter (winner of One Show and Cannes Lions digital awards), Anders needed a service that gave him fast, cheap, and reliable copy-editing of English text. Dissatisfied with his options, he presented the idea of an open platform for editors to serial entrepreneur Morten Wulff (traceworks.com, getinlive.com).

In August 2009, a pre-registration site for editors generated more than 250 registrations in just one week, and a prototype of Wordy was built. In September, business developers Klaus Lovgreen and Lars Bjerre Nielsen also joined Wordy as partners. After a beta period from December to March 2010, Wordy will really start totake over the world of editing by 1 April 2010.
