Great service

Great service! My first editor did not do a very good job. Fifteen minutes after I had rated the work, I received a call from the office and an offer that another editor will proofread the text again - and free of charge. The second proofreading was fabulous. So, not only great editing work, but also great customer service. Highly recommended!

Sehr professionelle Korrektur meiner…

Sehr professionelle Korrektur meiner BA, die ich nach 4 Tagen bereits zurückbekommen habe. Auch als ich bei der Bearbeitung im Nachgang nochmals Fragen hatte, wurden diese an meine Korrektorin weitergeleitet und zeitnah beantwortet :) Insgesamt kann ich das Lektorat und Korrekturlesen von Scribbr auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen.Einen Stern Abzug gibt es allerdings für die Plagiatsprüfung, die ich bei meiner Bestellung dazu gebucht hatte. Hier fand ich es schade, dass vorher nicht explizit angemerkt wird, dass die Quellenangaben im Literaturverzeichnis als mögliche Plagiate angezeigt werden (Tipp: die Anmerkung dazu nicht nur in der Anleitung erwähnen, sondern auch in den FAQs). Als Ergebnis erhielte ich nämlich bestimmt über 20 mögliche Plagiate, die sich auf das Literaturverzeichnis beziehen und somit den wahren Ähnlichkeitsscore verfälschten. Hätte man dies nochmal angemerkt, hätte ich mein Dokument ohne Literaturverzeichnis hochgeladen. Als ich mich diesbezüglich an den Service gewandt habe, wurde sich dafür zwar entschuldigt und mir mitgeteilt, dass ich mir bei 7% keine Sorgen machen muss, allerdings habe ich dann wieder auf der Webseite von Scribbr gelesen, dass alles ab 5 % problematisch sein könnte. Ich bin also leider nicht wirklich schlauer als vorher und wüsste gerne den tatsächlichen Score.

Frequently asked questions

Is the editor specialized in my field of study?

Our editors are all language specialists and not specialists in your field of study. You can select your field of study while uploading and we make sure that the editor who is editing your work is familiar with editing work in your field of study. This means that your editor will understand what is written, but will not be able to give you feedback about the content.

We’ve carefully selected and trained all our editors before they started working with us. Their work is also continuously assessed to ensure that we can deliver the highest quality.

We only work with language specialists because our ultimate goal is to improve the language of your text and not the content. We believe that only those specialized in academic writing can truly improve your writing!

What is our Proofreading & Editing service?

Proofreading & Editing entails checking for errors or omissions, whether typographical, linguistic, coding or positional; wrong usage of words and expressions; and inconsistencies. On top of that, your editor will help you become a better writer in the future with a personal improvement letter.

Language use will be improved

Your editor will correct:

  • Spelling
  • Grammar
  • Academic style
  • Sentence structure
  • Punctuation
  • Word choice
  • Incorrect and unclear words or sentences

Personal feedback with tips and suggestions

Your editor will give you feedback about:

  • Verb tenses
  • Writing numbers
  • Introducing abbreviations
  • Taboo words
  • And some basic language rules!

Your editor will proofread your document using Word’s Track Changes. When you receive your text back, you can simply accept all changes.

How long does it take to have my dissertation checked?

You can choose between three set time periods. The editor can edit your thesis within 24 hours, 72 hours or 1 week. The deadline is set as soon as you have paid.

Do you need to hand in your thesis in four days? Please choose either the 72 hours or 24 hours deadline. All the editing periods include weekends and holidays.

You will receive a notification via text message and email as soon as your thesis has been edited.

Check the How it works page for more information.

How do I receive my dissertation when the editor has finished the edit?

After your document has been edited, you will receive an email with a link to download the edited document.

The editor has made changes to your document using ‘Track Changes’ in Word.  This means that you only have to accept or ignore the changes that are made in the text one by one.

It is also possible to accept all changes at once. However, we strongly advise you not to do so for the following reasons:

  • You can learn much by looking at what mistakes you have made.
  • The editors do not only change the text, they also place comments when sentences or sometimes even entire paragraphs are unclear. We therefore advise you to read through these comments and take into account your editor’s tips and suggestions.
  • Because of the many changes, sometimes there may be double spaces, double periods, or other minor mistakes in a sentence. Checking the changes one by one, you can easily detect these minor errors.
