Frequently Asked Questions

Professional revisions

Does the service include VAT?

If you are purchasing the service as a VAT registered payer from any European country or the USA, VAT won’t be applied to your bill, due to the Community VAT exemption in Canary Islands. (Article 6 of VAT Directive).
If you are not a registered VAT payer or a VAT payer registered in Canary Islands, then a 7% rate local consumer tax known as the IGIC (Impuesto General Indirecto de Canarias – Canaries General Indirect Tax) will be applied.

How is the data I share with the reviewer kept confidential?

The expert grant writer is bound to confidentiality obligations during and following the performance of the service. The confidentiality obligations don’t allow the expert grant writer to re-use or share data relevant to the project proposal.

Can I make changes to the proposal while it is under revision?

No, you cannot make changes to the proposal while it is under revision.

Can I combine an offline revision with a consultancy?

Yes. You can book a consultancy to discuss the comments with the expert grant writer. The expert will review your proposal offline and then follow-up with you, answering any possible doubt. The combination of offline review and face-to-face consultation services can actually be very useful to better understand the expert’s comments and effectively improve your proposal.

Can I request a consultation to review my proposal, instead of the offline revision process?

Yes. If you feel more comfortable speaking directly to the expert grant writer rather than receiving her/ his comments, you can purchase a consultancy and go over the proposal review directly with the expert grant writer.

How many revisions can I purchase?

You can purchase as many revisions as needed. In our experience, a proposal might require a 3-cycle revision to be bulletproof.

How are professional revisions performed?

Revisions are performed offline by an expert grant writer. Once you complete a proposal on Typewiser, you can purchase professional revision cycles through the Plans & Features tab. The expert grant writer will receive a notification and read-only access to the proposal. S/He reviews the proposal by providing comments. The comments will point out areas where the proposal can be adjusted and tweaked. Once finished, you receive by email the notification that the review is completed.


Consultancy

What is the difference between standard and premium pricing?

Typewiser is offering you the choice to make your proposal stand out of the crowd even further. By purchasing standard consulting hours, you will gain the help and guidance of a Junior Consultant to take your proposal to the next level. By purchasing premium consulting hours, you instead will gain the expertise of a Senior Consultant, whose extensive proposal writing and consulting experience will help strengthen your proposal.

What kind of tasks the expert grant writer can perform for me?

Any task related to the proposal preparation and management. It can be writing sections, writing an entire proposal, reviewing the proposal, providing general online consultation, uploading on the participant portal the project documentation, performing market researches and patent searches, reviewing the project’s deliverables and periodic reports, and other tasks related to the continuous project management.

How the time spent by the professional writer on offline activities is calculated?

The time spent by the professional writer on the Typewiser platform for reading and writing tasks is automatically calculated by the Typewiser logging system. A detailed report is sent to you at the end of the session. The time spent is deducted from the cumulative set of hours purchased. The time spent by the professional grant writer outside the Typewiser platform, for example, to read a technical document related to the assigned task, is calculated using a reading-time algorithm. Indicatively, a standard page contains 500 words. If it is technical or scientific material, an expert will need around 3,5 minutes to read and comprehend it.

How do you measure the time spent on the consultation?

The expert measures and records the time spent on online consultations and related offline activities. A detailed report is sent to you after every online call and following the completion of the offline tasks assigned to the expert grant writer.
