Sarah's work was great!

Sarah's work was great! Extremely well done, she could improve the professionalism and sophistication of the English in my thesis without ever compromising the original phrases. I am so happy with the result. Furthermore she was careful and added comments anytime she was not sure whether I meant something or not, and made a special note so I would not miss it and could review it. I can totally recommend Sarah's work, and Scribbr overall. ;)

My paper is presented in the best possible manner.

Scribbr Editor Lora went over the clarity of my work in detail and, at the same time, pointed out all my grammatical and sentence structure problems. Her editing is comprehensive and more than just getting the job done. I am happy that the paper presents in the nest possible manner.

Excellent service!!

Excellent! Isabel went above and beyond with grammatical correction and suggested edits. She also understood the topic material and was able to rework sentence structure where needed. Since my degree program, geography, is uncommon, I had full trust knowing that there are editors specifically for geography and the environment! Thanks!

Michelle was amazing

Michelle was amazing. Her edits were spot on and she also offered thoughtful alternatives when she thought I'd be reluctant to accept her suggestions.Michelle also left comments about general rules of good writing along with specific edits, which I think helped me to learn and become a better writer!I should also say that this experience is incomparably better than an another service I've used before.

Excellent Job!

My editor Isabel did an excellent job. She fixed all the grammatical errors and individual sentences to be more concise and overall improved the academic tone of my whole paper. Besides, the edited version came back a few hours early than expected time. No wonder one of my supervisors recommended Scribbr to me and I highly recommend.

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.
