Professional Editors

Every question deserves attention to detail. Our professional editors have years of experience helping non-native English speakers improve their writing. Now you can take advantage of their expertise to get personalized, insightful responses to your questions.

You will never get an automated response or a canned AI answer that's only semi-related to your question. You will always receive authentic content written by a real person. Our editors prepare customized answers and clarifications to guide you on your English-learning journey.

A Fixed Price for Every Question

At TextRanch, transparency and trust are our priorities. With our Ask an Editor service, you can be assured that you will always pay a fixed price for every question you submit, regardless of its complexity. There are no hidden charges and no escalating costs. The straightforward pricing lets you focus on what truly matters: understanding and mastering the English language without any financial surprises.

Get Clarity on English Rules

English can be very difficult to learn and use, and it's frustrating to come across rules that seem to contradict each other. You might wonder if something is a phrasal verb or auxiliary verb. Maybe you're not sure about the right word to use in a sentence. Sometimes when completing English practice sentences, it can seem like a concept is just out of your grasp. No matter your question, our editors can break down complex ideas to ensure you get a clear answer that helps you understand why or how native speakers navigate that concept.

Completely Private and Confidential

Ask questions without the awkward moments or embarrassment that can come from asking your friends, family, or coworkers. Our editors are real people who know how hard it is to learn a new language. They are here to help you expand your knowledge of English by giving you compassionate and helpful correct answers. You can ask your English questions with confidence, knowing that they will never be shared with anyone else!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can I ask more than one question?

Our service is designed to provide in-depth answers to individual questions. To ensure that each question receives the dedicated attention it deserves from our senior editors, if you have multiple queries, you’ll need to submit each one separately.

What type of questions can I ask?

You can ask just about anything related to the English language. Common questions we see are about grammar rules, word choice, understanding idioms and slang, or requests to explain confusing English phrases. Please avoid questions that are not about the English language.

How long does it take?

A senior TextRanch editor will write a detailed answer for you within 24 hours.

Is there a word limit to my questions?

While there’s no strict word limit, we encourage you to be concise to ensure clarity. Most questions should be no more than 2 or 3 short sentences.

Can I ask questions about languages other than English?

TextRanch is an English editing company, and our editors are all experts in English. This means our Ask an Editor service is tailored specifically for queries related to the English language. We are not able to assist with foreign-language questions or other topics that are not related to English.

What if I’m not satisfied with the answer?

Continuous Language Evolution

English is the most common language used in business communications, and it is used by billions of people globally. It is also a very dynamic language; new words and phrases are continually being added to its lexicon. As English evolves, new words are added, old words can gain new meanings, and even the grammar rules sometimes change to fit modern society. All these changes can make it difficult to stay on top of your English game. The Ask an Editor service makes it easy to understand these changes with ease.

Enhanced Writing Skills

For non-native speakers and English learners, mastering English conversation and writing skills can open doors to global opportunities in academic fields, business, and creative fields.
