The idea of a foreign editing company doesn't sound appealing at all.

I'm not sure why you would ask a question about an editing company, here on a real estate website.

At first, I suspected that YOU might actually be a foreign editing company trying to pump up some business or yourself, but your profile says that you're a virtual staging company.

So, I'm at a loss.  Are you, too?  Are you lost?

"...is more efficient..."

Whas zat mean?

If the marketer wants to speak the language of their tribe, an editor in Bangalore may not be the right idea.

The editor in China will simply run it through Google translate. Now you know why so many user and installation manuals from China are nearly worthless. Be aware, anything sent to China becomes Chinese intellectual property, not yours.

The editor recently out of public high school will be to PC frightened to create a CTA.  How every, such an editor will present insight on how the selected words translate in a PC perverted world.

HOWEVER, if the job at hand is the academic editing of one's authoritative BOOK, one could save some money using the English as 1st language folks in Bangalore. At least these folks will actually READ the book and insure THERE and THEIR appear properly.

I went to a catholic gradeschool where I learned good English grammer...yet I would never consider editing for a foreign country.

Someone that does not speak English as a first language is not someone that I would want to edit anything I write.

NO ..... let me be clear .... NO. I had an unfortunate experience with a website product that used virtual assistants from the Philippines. When they got done with my website you never would have known I had graduated 5th grade. 

Incomplete sentences, misspelled words, grammatical errors - it was awful. So, lesson learned, hire someone here. Maybe use Fivr.

I imagine the word "efficient" may need some further clarification as how you interpret it.  Cost effective/efficient?  Better for your own business model?  Quite frankly, this is beyond my knowledge but on the surface there can be advantages/disadvantages to many of life's decisions when one can step back and truly analyze them.

I know many people who do for content writing.  It's usually much cheaper ($5 for 1,000 words) than hiring a US based writer and most have a good grasp on the english language and a college degree.  As with any writer, you will need to proof what they write, and some are better than others.

Efficient?  Let's define efficient. 

preventing the wasteful use of a particular resource.

(of a person) working in a well-organized and competent way.

It would depend on the foreign company AND their editing skills.

It is not about efficiency when you hire off-shore workers, it is about price.

Weigh the price vs. the quality of the product and make a decision.

I'm sorry for my poor English :(( I mean a foreign real estate photo editing and virtual staging company like our start-up company based in Vietnam. We believe that we offer a good service at a good price. But our problem is the time zone difference.

Thanks for all your concern!
