Impressed by the quality of the correction

Amy did an amazing job in only 24h! In such a short amount of time, she provided me with very clear advices on how I could clarify my overall thesis and corrected the numerous grammatical mistakes I did. Amy also perfectly followed my expectations and showed me which sections of the paper I should cut out, in order to end up with the right number of words. A big thumbs up!

The service helped me to greatly improve my document. The editor corrected important mistakes that I overlooked because English is not my first language. The editor also pointed at important issues regarding the composition of my text. Due to the good observations of the editor, I was able to correct and improve my master's thesis before handing it in.

Professional, extremely helpful, and so absolutely impressed. Thank you, Margaret.

The first time I've used any editing service

This is the first time I've used any service to assist with academic paper writing. To say I was skeptical would be an understatement. However, the service and support exceeded my expectations enormously. The comments were essential, numerous and courteous. I was amazed that, in just a 72 hour turnaround, the editor, Phil, was able to actually plow through my 40 page paper, let alone understand and comment concisely, but comprehensively. In short, loved the experience. I'm a better academic for it. And loved the thoughtfulness, gentleness but thoroughness of the comments.

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.
