Great editing and proofreading services

The services provided by Scribbr exceeded my expectations. I recieved my in-depth edit earlier than expected, while the quality of the corrections and comments were great. Further, Scribbr provided me with a lot of information and support, although I never encountered any issues.

Just to recommend

Elaine is really very responsible and good at doing her job. My thesis becomes more readible and understandable after her corrections. She has really rescued my work. In fact, I could hardly believe the nonsense I have written could be rearranged in such a clear and understandable way. She also provided many important tips and advices in further improving my writing style. I really treasure her help. Scribbr is really a reliable and helpful proofreading platform. I would like to use it again for my future publications and dissertation!

The scribbr editors were of great help to in finishing my dissertation. After I got mixed feedback on my first draft (which was already edited and think on a very high level) scribbr helped me out with a second round of editing. All of this was accompanied by an excellent and engaged service. They call you up to ask whether everything is okay. If I would ever write another dissertation -- which I won't ;) -- I would leave the language check to Scribbr again for sure!

Great service, most of the time

Used Scribbr 3 times while finishing up my master degree dissertation: Editor 1: Excellent. Editor 2: Completely useless. Clearly not a native English speaker. My own English editing and proofreading abilities are far better. I could not use any of the editors suggestions. I was completely shocked at the low quality of the work this editor carried out. Editor 3: Outstanding.Overall I am happy with Scribbr, but the quality of their editors varies so much that I cannot recommend others to use them. What if someone hands in a 50,000 word thesis and it's assigned to the same editor that did a terrible job on my thesis? Seems like too much of a risk, and they were not very good about rectifying the issue (they assigned another editor to re-edit/proofread only a small portion of the piece initially worked on my the incompetent editor, and tried to push for doing as little as possible to fix the issue).The other two editors I worked with were professional and did a highly satisfying job. If all their editors were like that, I would recommend them to current postgraduate students I know without hesitation.In short, great service IF you get one of their good editors.Also, reasonably priced. I wish I'd have known about them when I was an undergraduate student.

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.
