Lora is marvelous

Lora is marvelous! Last paper she edited, the instructor founds tremendous pleasure reading it. Consequently, the paper got highest grade ever. My honest opinion is that I cannot do without my editor - Lora is simply fantastic. Again, this paper is a sequel to my previous one. There are a lot of mistakes but Lori is spot-on. She went over my paper in detail and offer wonderful suggestions.

Jack was great

Jack was great! He helped me fix my sentence structure and make it all flow smooth. When I lacked a date he even added it for me! I wasn't sure how it would turn out at first, and I was reluctant at first but after seeing the final result I am pleased. He even made sure that it was Canadian English!

I really appreciated the detailed feedback I got - particularly in regards to specific dissertation-appropriate language choices, explanations of areas that weren't clear, and suggestions for more concise and comprehensible wording. I believe these all improved my dissertation substantially. The structural notes in the abstract and introduction also produced a much improved final draft. I wouldn't have minded more harsh critiques in the assessment of clarity, though I know that was probably difficult given the rather niche topic. Overall I was very happy with both the service and the turnaround time, as well as the tone and directness of the editors comments. Will definitely be returning in the future if I have need to!

I am generally very satisfied with the improvements of my paper, Shawn did for me. His comments are clear and they will help me to avoid the same mistakes in the future. I appreciate his explanations on the differences of British and American spelling, academic styles and terms, commonly used in this academic sphere in English. I also made a good use of his advice on some unnecesary parts of the text, which could be deleted. I will definitely ask for his assistence again.

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.
