An excellent job

I am super satisfied with the work of my editor. Every comment she leaves to me truly improves the quality of my essay. I have learned a lot from her comments and suggestions as well. This is my second time using Scribbr's service and I definitely will come back to Scribbr next time when I need an editor to proofread or to edit my essays. You have done an excellent job, Scribbr. Thank you so much for helping me to go through challenges every semester since English is not my native language. Keep it up!

Students' critical review about the service

I'm doing an assignment at an institute, however, I do not have an insight of the payment. As for student like me, I recommend that Scribbr organization should do the service free for students as they have not entered the workforce yet.

Doctoral dissertation

Scribbr and the editor assigned to proofread and edit my dissertation are very professional and prompt in the delivery of their service. While Scribbr gives me a superior customer service, the editor is very patient and goes extra mile to address every word in my document. They are wonderful people to work with and care much about their customers.

The process was easy

The process was easy, the cost was fair, and the document was actually a little early. My instructors approved it, and the feedback from the editor was in line with my instructors expectations. Great job.

Research Paper

It was a pleasure to work with Daniel and Gerben. Daniel was my main editor while Gerben made sure that my sources were cited correctly. Daniel's input was very helpful and made my essay more cohesive. Gerben, meanwhile, pointed out that I forgot to cite one of my sources, which saved me from a lot of potential grief. Many thanks to Daniel, Gerben, and the rest of the Scribbr team.

Your Services Are Worth Every Penny

I have used Scribbr many times. I signed up to Trustpilot just to write this review. It simply is the best proofreading service I have ever used. Amazing results, with great recommendations on how to improve your writing in the future. It's the attention to detail not only for the writing, but outside too. The website is beautifully designed and extremely intuitive. Furthermore, their plagiarism checker is simply the best; using the same system most university's use (being Turnitin). You have an extremely loyal customer; your services are worth every penny.

My first English language thesis

This was my first English language thesis (non-native English speaker) and the work done by the editor was outstanding. The insight provided helped me to format the thesis to be more clear to the reader and also to be more technically and grammatically correct. I highly recommend Scribbr for any thesis work.

Highly Recommended!

I used the proofreading and editing service for my document. I highly recommend Scribbr for the following reasons: (1) The editor delivered the proofreading and editing of my document very fast, one day earlier than expected. (2) The comments were very precise and made sense. (3) He explained each comment and the reason so that I could learn new things. (4) The prices are reasonable for the services.

Frequently asked questions

What if I am not happy with the edit?

Editing documents is still the work of people. And we, too, can make mistakes. If you’re not 100% happy with the edit, please let us know so we can find the solution that’s best for you, whether that’s a new edit or a refund.

Read more about our 100% happiness guarantee.

Can I choose between American English, British English and Australian English?

Yes, as you upload your document you can fill in your preferences at step 4.

If you do not know if you wish to write in American, Australian, or in British English, the editor will choose American, Australian, or British English based on the English you currently use. If the editor has any questions about this, we will contact you.

Can I upload my document in sections?

Yes, you can upload your document in sections.

We try our best to ensure that the same editor checks all the different sections of your document. When you upload a new file, our system recognizes you as a returning customer, and we immediately contact the editor who helped you before.

However, we cannot guarantee that the same editor will be available. Your chances are higher if

  1. You send us your text as soon as possible and
  2. You can be flexible about the deadline.

Please note that the shorter your deadline is, the lower the chance that your previous editor is not available.

If your previous editor isn’t available, then we will inform you immediately and look for another qualified editor. Fear not! Every Scribbr editor follows the Scribbr Improvement Model and will deliver high-quality work.

Can I have my document edited during weekends and holidays?

Yes, our editors also work during the weekends and holidays.

Because we have many editors available, we can check your document 24 hours per day and 7 days per week, all year round.

If you choose a 72 hour deadline and upload your document on a Thursday evening, you’ll have your thesis back by Sunday evening!

What is the Clarity Check?

The Clarity Check is an additional service that you can purchase when you have your document proofread by Scribbr.

If you select the Clarity Check, then your editor will provide you with useful feedback to help you improve your reasoning and ensure that what you’ve written is comprehensive and clear.

The editor will provide this feedback using two checklists and in-text comments. Our editors never implement this feedback directly, as it often concerns your ideas and argumentation.

Note that our editors can only consider the internal logic and clarity of your text. They are not subject matter experts and can therefore not check your facts or tell you the content is correct.

Read more about the Clarity Check

Is the editor an expert in my field of study?

When you place an order, you can specify your field of study and we’ll match you with an editor who has familiarity with this area.

However, our editors are language specialists, not academic experts in your field. Your editor’s job is not to comment on the content of your dissertation, but to improve your language and help you express your ideas as clearly and fluently as possible.

This means that your editor will understand your text well enough to give feedback on its clarity, logic and structure, but not on the accuracy or originality of its content.

Good academic writing should be understandable to a non-expert reader, and we believe that academic editing is a discipline in itself. The research, ideas and arguments are all yours – we’re here to make sure they shine!
