By helping you communicate effectively with your employer or prospective employer, we help you secure better career opportunities, promotions, and pay increases:
- Surveys of hiring managers have shown that companies are more likely to hire job applicants who write well than those who don’t because excellent writing implies a conscientious and detail-oriented person.
- In a July 2012 article, the CEO of iFixit, Kyle Wiens, wrote, “Extenuating circumstances aside (dyslexia, English language learners, etc.), if job hopefuls can’t distinguish between ‘to’ and ‘too,’ their applications go into the bin.”
- A Grammarly study in 2013 found that good writing with few grammatical and spelling errors can help professionals advance to higher positions in their companies and advance more often.

All levels of editing, from developmental to proofreading
To prepare any form of writing for publication in print or digital media, Tight Rewrite.com’s highly experienced editors conscientiously provide all major levels of professional editing. These levels, which are also called stages of editing, include developmental or substantive editing, copyediting, and proofreading.
Developmental editing to ensure proper structure
During developmental editing, which is the most time-consuming level of editing, our professional editors review the overall structure of your writing and make global revisions. In other words, we look at and change the most important elements of your material, which are the big-picture elements.
During this editing stage, we rearrange, add, or delete paragraphs or entire sections of text. We make these global revisions to ensure that your writing is well organized, coherent, focused, fully developed, complete, appropriate for your target audience, and consistent with your overall purpose and vision.
Meticulous copyediting and proofreading by our eagle eyes
After completing these big-picture revisions during developmental editing, we fine-tune your writing through painstaking copyediting and proofreading.
During these final stages of editing, our eagle-eyed copyeditors and proofreaders focus on the details, such as individual words, phrases, and sentences. We then meticulously correct all the errors in sentence structure, grammar, word usage, and mechanics, including punctuation, spelling, capitalization, and abbreviation.
To ensure a consistent style throughout your writing, we make all these corrections based on authoritative, widely used style manuals (e.g., The Chicago Manual of Style, 17th ed.) and style sheets that are appropriate for your text and target audience.
Highly polished final product to help you succeed in business
When we’ve completed all the editing stages that your writing requires, we provide you with a final product that you can trust we’ve impeccably edited to the highest standards of professional editing.
Your error-free final product can then help you project a professional image, command respect and trust, and increase revenue and profits:
- A 2015 study by a Wayne State University journalism professor provides further evidence that digital audiences perceive well-written news articles as more professional, more organized, and more valuable than poorly written articles.
- Consumers perceive businesses with well-written marketing copy and other business communication as more professional, credible, and trustworthy than careless businesses with sloppy communication.
- A 2013 Grammarly comparison study of the writing by six of the world’s leading companies and brands found that writing accuracy (i.e., correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation) is correlated with a company’s market share.
Accurate English–Spanish translation by native speakers
Tight Rewrite.com’s network of well-educated native speakers in the United States and Latin America provides professional, accurate, reliable translation of any kind of text or audio-recorded speech from English to Spanish, or vice versa.
Translation localized to a dialect in a specific country
Because our professional human translators are intimately familiar with their native countries’ distinct cultures and regional variations in language, we’ll not only translate your text, but also localize it. In other words, we’ll adapt a translation of your text to a specific dialect, or a form of language spoken in a particular country or region.
That way if your company is based in Bogotá, Colombia, for example, or Mexico City, Mexico, you can rest assured that your website translated from Spanish into English will sound natural and be readable to native speakers in your target market of, say, Los Angeles.
Translated and localized content to increase your market share
Our highly professional translation of your company’s website and other marketing materials into the native languages of global consumers can significantly increase:
- Your company’s search engine rankings and website traffic, as digital marketing and analytics expert Neil Patel explained in his February 23, 2015 blog article, “How I Increased My Search Traffic by 47% from Translating My Blog into 82 Languages.”
- Your company’s market reach by communicating with the majority of global consumers who visit websites only in their native languages.
- Your company’s market share by targeting the 75 percent of global consumers who, according to a 2014 study by independent research firm Common Sense Advisory, “prefer to buy products in their native language.”
- Your company’s global brand awareness and recognition.
- Your company’s image as a professional, credible, and global brand that values and connects with its customers.

OUR CORE TEAM
Founder & Editor in Chief
Born just a couple of miles away from the beautiful Pacific Ocean in Santa Monica, California, Stewart has lived most of his life in the Los Angeles area. He has also lived in Mammoth Lakes, which is a popular ski resort town in California’s Sierra Nevada, and in Santa Barbara, California, also known as the American Riviera.
While in Santa Barbara, Stewart immersed himself in English, linguistics, and the philosophy of language at the University of California at Santa Barbara, which U.S. News & World Report ranked No. 5 among the nation’s top public colleges and universities. There, he received a bachelor’s degree with honors in philosophy.
Stewart has extensive experience as a private tutor in English grammar, writing, and English as a second language. He has also served as a teacher’s assistant of informal logic (critical evaluation of arguments in everyday language) in the philosophy department at a Los Angeles–area college.
An inveterate lover of the English language, Stewart has dedicated himself for more than 18 years to writing, copyediting, and proofreading for a wide variety of clients. They’ve included employees, labor union members, students, patients, individual investors, consumers, tenants, doctors, lawyers, social workers, other professionals, dancers, disc jockeys, music and dance event promoters, small and medium-sized businesses, and nonprofit organizations.
Stewart, who is a full member of the American Copy Editors Society (ACES), has helped his clients communicate effectively on subjects such as employees’ rights, patients’ rights, consumer advocacy, health care, medicine, law, government, finance, investing, music, and dance.
When he’s not hyperfocused on detecting dangling participial phrases, run-on sentences, subject-verb disagreements, and other grammatical errors, Stewart enjoys hiking and relaxing in the beauty and tranquility of nature. He’s also passionate about attending salsa and bachata music and dance events with his friends in Los Angeles’s vibrant Latin music and dance scene.
Sinai is a native Spanish speaker who was born and raised in the coastal city of Los Mochis, in the northwestern state of Sinaloa, Mexico. He also grew up in El Fuerte, Sinaloa, and La Junta, Chihuahua, Mexico.
While going to school in Mexico, Sinai was always keenly interested in and passionate about learning not only his native Spanish but also English. He tirelessly dedicated himself to learning the intricacies of both Spanish and English. In middle school, he even participated and excelled in local and state academic competitions in English.
Sinai continued to hone his Spanish and English in high school. During that time, he devoted himself to developing his language translation skills. He would spend seemingly endless hours meticulously translating the lyrics of American songs and the dialogue from American movies from English into Spanish. As a result, he developed a keen eye for detail and the nuances of translation between English and Spanish.
After graduating from high school in Mexico, Sinai moved to San Diego, California, to continue studying upper-level Spanish and English in college. He was on the dean’s list at San Diego State University, where he received his bachelor’s degree in television and film production within the university’s School of Theatre, Television, and Film.
Sinai started his career writing approximately 30 scripts for Spanish- and English-language short films. For the past five years, he has been working as a professional English–Spanish translator for a leading U.S.-based provider of high-quality transcriptions, translations, captioning, and subtitling for broadcast networks, cable television stations, and the largest sporting and entertainment events, including the Superbowl and Olympics.
When he’s not striving to find perfect translations for popular television programs or global corporations, Sinai enjoys hobbies such as photography, film, music, and sports. He also loves spending quality time with his family at home in the international border area between San Diego, California, and Tijuana, Mexico.
Sinai lives right in the middle of the melting pot of this bustling border area so that he can enjoy the best of both worlds and keep up to date with the language, culture, and people in each country.
