Scribbr blew my mind.

Scribbr blew my mind.I was so pleased when I received my work over two days before it was due. I was even more pleased with the end result. I couldn't be happier and I genuinely can't wait to hand in my assignment for my professor to read.

I have worked with many editors in the past, but I never felt this relieved seeing the edits. Patrick has a super attention to detail, and with very few words lift the writing to a level of amazing. This is truly a talent and a skill few have. I don't know Patrick in person but its clear he has done this long enough to know good writing. AND he is totally saving my last minute PhD manuscript mess, for which I know also advisor, committee and opponent will be grateful. So basically, you are a rockstar :-) I will never go to another editor again!

She has able to point out issues I have with grammar, as well as, writing style vs oral communication.While I have not defended my Doctoral Project yet, I am hopeful this will enhance my chances of passing. At least the professors will not be consumed with errors in my grammar and structure which would have been apparent otherwise.Thank you for your time and professional performance.Feel free to keep in touch and I'll let you know if come spring I am the Dr. Barrick!Much peace,Rev.

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.

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.
