How EasyLekto works

Getting EasyLekto services is easily. Your text must be uploaded to the EasyLekto server in a suitable format [1] via the “Place an order” page or as an e-mail attachment to EasyLekto You also choose whether you only want a proofreading, editing or other supplementary service [2]. After EasyLekto has received your order, you will receive an email with an attached invoice. Depending on the scope of your order, your text will be corrected and processed directly, and you will receive a payment request upon completion or you will have to pay in advance and the processing will only start after payment of the invoice [3].

If the text is edited, you are given as an e-mail attachment as well as a download link, where you can load the results by yourselve onto the computer. In any case, you always receive the original file, a correction file, as well as a directly usable corrected file [4].

Important: If special features should be taken into consideration during the revision of your text, please provide corresponding information, while you placing an order (retention of personal or dialect characteristics, etc.). In case of doubt, you will be contacted by e-mail to clarify such or similar questions. Your satisfaction is top priority for EasyLekto.

2. a correction file (.docx or .odt) showing the corrections / revisions for you

[5]: Encrypting sensitive data

Sensitive data should be encrypted before transmission. EasyLekto guarantees the correct handling of your textes and will never make the data accessible to third parties, but there is always the possibility of intercepting documents on the transmission path.

You can encrypt your documents with openPGP / GPG and then transfer them. This way, you can rest assured that the data can only be decrypted for EasyLekto. For encryption under Windows you can simply use Gpg4win or do this with a right-click in the Explorer. For OS-X, simply install openPGP or GPG. Then you have the possibility to encrypt the file in the Finder by means of a right click. On Linux, use the GPA program or encrypt the file in the text console using the command

gpg -r --encrypt <filename>

First of all, you have to add the public key of EasyLekto to your keyring: public key

In order for EasyLekto sending back your encrypted file again, of course you must start a private and public key (with the programs above) and you can either upload the public key to a key server or send EasyLekto as an e-mail attachment. You will also receive your file back in encrypted form.
