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…

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.

Although my narrative wasn’t scholarly related. Scribble was still willing to assist me. I truly had a great experience from start to finish. The service was outstanding and well worth my time and money.

I can only recommend

The work that editors put into proofreading is extraordinary. If you know you need someone to look over your thesis, don't hesitate, this is the right place.
