# Editing and Proofreading LaTex Files

We can now accept LaTex files and can process them in different ways for you:

### Editing documents in raw LaTex

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
%	options include 12pt or 11pt or 10pt
%	classes include article, report, book, letter, thesis

\title{This is the title}
\author{Author One \\ Author Two}
\date{27 February 2016}

\begin{document}
\maketitle

This is the content of this document.

This is the 2nd paragraph.
Here is an inline formula:
$V = \frac{4 \pi r^3}{3}$.
And appearing immediately below
is a displayed formula:
$$V = \frac{4 \pi r^3}{3}$$
\end{document}

Of course we don’t edit your formulas, formatting or document structure, just the written content. However, in our experience, you want to see the revisions we have made; we can edit and proofread your Latex documents with the changes tracked so you can see and accept every revision; we do this in two ways:

### Editing LaTex documents in Lyx

LyX is a graphical user interface for LaTeX, which has its own version of Track Changes to enable acceptance or rejection of revisions. Here’s the procedure:

1. We import your LaTeX file into LyX (File > Import > LaTeX).
2. We edit your LaTex file in LyX, using its revision-tracking feature (Document > Change Tracking > Track Changes).
3. You review our changes in LyX and accept or reject as needed.

At this point, you can (1) export the file as LaTeX (File > Export > LaTeX) or (2) process the file from within LyX.

### Editing LaTex documents in MS Word

We open your LaTex document in MS Word, saving it as a .doc or .docx. We then edit and proofread your English document using Track Changes and comments (download our guide to using Track Changes in MS applications).

When you have processed your document in MS Word, i.e accepting our changes and responding to editor comments, you can save the file as a text file (extension .txt) and then change the .txt extension to a .tex extension.

You will then be able to arrange and compile your LaTex file as normal, and if you have any problems, you can always talk to us:
