Businesses + Association Professionals

In the world of businesses and associations, clients and members are your most important assets. You want to communicate your message to them as clearly as possible. 

When deadlines are looming, you may not have the luxury to give your writing the attention it needs. Whether you are preparing a report, a white paper, a newsletter, or a series of communication materials, TEC editors can give you the assistance you need to complete your print or web publishing project on time and within budget.

We know how important it is for your materials to be as concise, crisp, and energetic as possible. We know you want it to speak to your target audience, and that you want all of your publications to be professional and error-free. 

At TEC, we value the importance of high-quality, effective publications that rely on good writing. We know that good writing delivers your message and reflects well on your business. If you make a mistake or miss an error, it can be embarrassing. TEC’s editors can give your professional image the attention it needs. While you focus on the big picture, let us take care of the finer details.

TEC reassures all its business clients that confidentiality is guaranteed. To honour this understanding, we are happy to sign a Confidentiality Agreement with our clients.

Who We Help

Academics

As academic authors, journal and book publishers, you want your final manuscript to be as close to perfection as possible. You want an editor who can competently handle your subject matter, who has an eye for detail and accuracy, and who is an expert at editing references and citations. We are editors you can trust with your work.

Non-Fiction Authors

Whether you are writing a business publication, a non-fiction manuscript, an information resource, a museum catalogue, or a memoir, TEC is committed to bringing out the best in your work. Vibrant, groundbreaking, distinguished, award-winning writing: this is what it takes to make your title stand out, and it is the collaborative effort between author and editor that make a great book.

Business & Association Professionals

In the world of businesses and associations, clients and members are your most important assets. You want to communicate your message to them as clearly as possible. When deadlines are looming, you may not have the luxury to give your writing the attention it needs.

Educational Magazines & Trade Publishers

We know that in-house editors may not have time to handle all the details of preparing book manuscripts for publication or to proofread final PDFs of a magazine. When you decide to contract out, you need to depend on editors who are experienced, accurate, budget-conscious, and meet deadlines.
