FAQ
What does proofreading entail?

This is the final step of the essay. It takes place once the organisation, structuring and coherence of the essay’s content have been entirely fulfilled. The key here is to ‘polish’ the essay by reviewing and correcting errors of a technical or typographical nature.

When we offer proofreading that includes:

  • Correcting grammatical, spelling and punctuation errors.
  • Correcting paragraphing i.e. use of spacing and placement.
  • Style consistency i.e. if the writer sticks to the same formal/informal tone.
  • Point of view i.e. is the writer is staying in first/third person throughout the paper.
  • Formatting errors made in accordance with writer’s specifications (page numbers, cover page, title, font, line spacing, headings).
What does Logic & Structure entail?

Here, our editor will determine whether the way the essay has been structured corresponds well to its argumentative aims. Broadly speaking, this task involves examining the essay’s thesis as well as the quality of both order and consistency of the essay’s ideas and pieces of evidence. Rather than actual correction, the client can expect to receive notes and suggestions from out editor.

What does the Reference Check entail?

As long as you give us the accurate source information, we can make sure that your footnotes, in-text references and bibliography are all precise and correct according to the referencing style required by your department. This service is available in the following styles:

  • Harvard
  • Chicago
  • APA
  • Vancouver
What type of academic work can I submit?

You name it we do it:

  • Essays
  • Thesis
  • Reports
  • Dissertations
  • Research proposals
  • Etc.
Who will be proofreading my paper?

That depends on your field of study. What we usually do is match your field of study with the expertise of our editors. That means that if for example you upload your document and mark it as a ‘Social Science thesis’ we will have an editor from that faculty take care of it.

How can I be sure that my paper will be subject to high-quality editing standards?

We have an in-house quality management system with highly professional staff that constantly keeps our editors in check.

Do I really need my work to be proofread?

That depends solely on your judgment, but our experts can help improve your work and make it truly outstanding. Just because proofreading is the final step of the writing process, doesn’t make it any less important. And unless you are a literary or linguistic genius, we (and many other academic advisors) recommend getting a second pair of eyes to revise that paper you’ve so tirelessly been working on for the last 72 hours ;).

When I choose the 24h option but only upload my document at midnight will the editor still be able to proofread in time?

Yes, they will. Thanks to an increasingly globalised world, our editors can be found around the globe in every time zone. Timely reception of your document is guaranteed.

My English is not very good, but I want my thesis to be perfect. Can you help me?

Most certainly. We are more than happy to make your paper outstanding.

What languages do you offer for your proofreading?

We are exclusively specialised in English.

I have a specific format I need to adhere to. How will you know which one I use?

Formats are usually pretty generic, with little to no differences between them. However, should you feel that yours is unique, you can specify this in the comment section. Just keep in mind that our editors do not have time to go through pages of formatting rules. It’s a safe bet that when reading your paper, editors would probably pick up which format you are using anyway.

If I use American English is that compatible with your English skill-set?

Yes, it is. Our editors can proofread your paper in both variations of English.

What if I exclusively made use of a translation software to translate my document into English. Will you still be able to proofread my document?

That will be very difficult for our editors. The reason for this is because much of the grammar cannot be properly translated and often ends up being completely wrong. We also reserve the right to not accept papers which are pretty much incomprehensible.

Can I rate your service?

Yes, please. We use Google third-party review system. After each completed job you will be given the chance to rate us.

What if I am not satisfied with the work of the editor?

You would need to send us an email in which you describe your problem. This will then further be investigated but we usually always find a solution that suits both sides.

I am a second-time client with your website. Can I have my work proofread by the same editor?

Sure, we can do that. But you would need to give us notice before you upload the document so that we can make the necessary arrangements.

Can I also pay only on obtainment of my proofread document?

Unfortunately not. You would need to pay upon submission of your document. However, if you feel unsure you can also just pop us a mail and we will gladly assist you with any questions you may have.

What files do you accept?

Due to administrative reasons we only accept Word (.docx) documents.
