I am very happy with Tim's work

I am very happy with Tim's work. Not only did his remarks improve my thesis, they also gave me new tools to improve my writing in the future.At first I was a bit worried about sending my MA thesis to a stranger, but now I can say that I am 100% satisfied and recommend Tim to everyone.Tim showed not only great language and writing knowledge and skills, but also a good understanding of my theoretical arguments and ideas throughout the thesis.Furthermore, it is astonishing that in only 72 he was able to create such a thorough work on such a big paper (92 pages!).Thank you very much Tim, and all the Scribbr team.

Satisfied Customer

What a professional staff that kept their promise to provide feedback, make suggestions/ corrections and to return my document back in a timely fashion. I was very pleased with their service and have recommended Scribbr to a friend. Richard is a "phenomenal" professor who did not hesitate on giving me sound guidance and encouragement. Thank you everyone!

Now I have more confident

English is my second language and I have always struggeled with writing in english. I spent a lot of money and time in different english classes, but none of them was as effective as the feedback that I recieved from Sophie. It was personalized and it was for me. Sophie edited my thesis and now I feel more confident in my writing. Besides, the feedback I recieved from my supervisor was super positive. Thank you :)

Would love to meet Philip in person.

Would love to meet Philip in person. He is awesome! He tries to understand my thesis and offers wonderful advice beyond simple editing. Not to mention, his turnaround time is amazingly fast. Sorry for the late review. I successfully defended my dissertation in Jan and submitted it two weeks later:)

My editor was particularly precise and careful, trying to understand the motif behind each sentence. She made the work substantially better, chosing apt terminology, and she even finished early.

Good work

I was very happy with Pamela's proofreading. It was thorough and also included great advice on how to avoid the same mistakes in the future. I did notice though that I had to check that when Pamela suggested a different sentence structure that sometimes some words from the old sentence remained, giving the overall paragraph no meaning. Also, I have noticed that the Norwegian Scribbr pages are not very well proofread in Norwegian, and this gives a bad impression of the company. I chose to use it regardless, due to good reviews though :-)

I was really satisfied with the review of my document. I think it has improved a lot after the editing. I was given detailed comments with examples so it is easy to understand the changes that were being made. I highly recommend Richard if you are submitting anything related to business field. He did an awesome job! I am not sure if I can choose him as my editor again but if I could, I will.

Reviewing 5/5 stars

Amazing professionalism. Editors will correct every error, usually even 2-3 hours before the deadline, will suggest you how to make your paper look better, and some will even correct parts of the paper that arent marked for proofreading, only to ensure the consistency of the paper. 5/5 stars.

Philip exceeded my expectations

Philip exceeded my expectations, especially with his recommendation on title rephrasing. I'm also certain he has affinity with Economics, because his editing was apt! Would love to work with him again.

Janneke did an excellent job with my manuscript!I just want to apologize because I forgot to mention that my document was written in LaTeX and transformed on word format, thus the layout was often wrong (tables and figure legends) and it was a bit confusing for the proof-reading.
