We are specialized in proofreading and editing study-related texts in a variety of disciplines.
Whether you are writing your first college essay or finishing your bachelor’s or master’s thesis, we can help you improve your work.
We offer our proofreading and editing service in eight languages.
Our editors will not only correct typos, language mistakes, and punctuation errors, but also ensure that your paper is consistent and academic in style.
We use Word’s Track Changes, so you can easily decide which changes to accept.
In addition to making changes directly in the text, our editors ask useful questions, provide suggestions, and offer tips to help you become a better writer!
If you select the Clarity Check, you’ll receive feedback on the clarity of your ideas and arguments.
You’ve probably read your text over and over again. A fresh pair of eyes will ensure your paper is clear and free of contradictions.
The result is a clear and logical story.
Do you want to ensure your paper is well-structured and organized? Meet the Structure Check.
The editor will highlight repetition and redundancy and ensure that every chapter contains the right information. After the Structure Check is finished, you can rest assured that your paper is organized.
The format of your paper is also important.
Our paper formatting experts can help you with your table of contents, lists of tables and figures, page numbering, paragraph formatting, and headings.
Who better to ask to proofread your French, Spanish, or German essay than a native speaker?
We only work with professional editors who hold a university degree, are experienced academic writing experts, and can improve the writing of native speakers.
