Overjoyed with the results

I was very nervous to submit my essay because German is neither my native language, nor am I fluent, so I knew that my essay would be littered with many grammatical errors that I was bound to overlook. However, the Scribblr team edited and returned my essay before the deadline and I was more than thrilled with the results. The feedback and the advice that I received was also very helpful and now I feel that I can submit my essay with confidence.

I am very happy with Tim's work

I am very happy with Tim's work. Not only did his remarks improve my thesis, they also gave me new tools to improve my writing in the future.At first I was a bit worried about sending my MA thesis to a stranger, but now I can say that I am 100% satisfied and recommend Tim to everyone.Tim showed not only great language and writing knowledge and skills, but also a good understanding of my theoretical arguments and ideas throughout the thesis.Furthermore, it is astonishing that in only 72 he was able to create such a thorough work on such a big paper (92 pages!).Thank you very much Tim, and all the Scribbr team.

Now I have more confident

English is my second language and I have always struggeled with writing in english. I spent a lot of money and time in different english classes, but none of them was as effective as the feedback that I recieved from Sophie. It was personalized and it was for me. Sophie edited my thesis and now I feel more confident in my writing. Besides, the feedback I recieved from my supervisor was super positive. Thank you :)

Would love to meet Philip in person. He is awesome! He tries to understand my thesis and offers wonderful advice beyond simple editing. Not to mention, his turnaround time is amazingly fast.

Good work

I was very happy with Pamela's proofreading. It was thorough and also included great advice on how to avoid the same mistakes in the future. I did notice though that I had to check that when Pamela suggested a different sentence structure that sometimes some words from the old sentence remained, giving the overall paragraph no meaning. Also, I have noticed that the Norwegian Scribbr pages are not very well proofread in Norwegian, and this gives a bad impression of the company. I chose to use it regardless, due to good reviews though :-)

I was really satisfied with the review of my document. I think it has improved a lot after the editing. I was given detailed comments with examples so it is easy to understand the changes that were being made. I highly recommend Richard if you are submitting anything related to business field. He did an awesome job! I am not sure if I can choose him as my editor again but if I could, I will.

Reviewing scribbr.com. 5/5 stars

Amazing professionalism. Editors will correct every error, usually even 2-3 hours before the deadline, will suggest you how to make your paper look better, and some will even correct parts of the paper that arent marked for proofreading, only to ensure the consistency of the paper. 5/5 stars.

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.
