Totally worth the money

Scribbr really helped me improve my bachelor's thesis, especially with the level of English as I am not a native speaker. The editors furthermore pointed out my most common mistakes, which will help me to avoid them in the future. Thank you so much again!

Kind and careful proofreading

The review was very thorough, and the feedback report that pointed out the most common mistakes was very helpful. The deadline for the review was also well met. The website was sophisticated and user-friendly, and the procedures were clearly explained. I would use their services again.

This website is a life saver

whenever I procrastinate on an assignment, I write down all my links and hand them in without APA. This website is a lifesaver. it not only gathers all the information by a quick search, but formats everything (including the things it couldn't find!). From just clicking a few buttons, i finished all my references in a matter of minutes. disappointed that i didnt find it before.

Dissertation Editing

My experience with the entire Scribbr team was fantastic. My dissertation was 80,000 words and I needed the draft turned around quickly. Scribbr met the deadline and the edits made the project much stronger. Their customer service is impeccable and each member of their team will go to great lengths to make sure that you are happy. I can't recommend them enough. Thank you, Scribbr!

I'm really happy&satisfied with the proofreadings. It would be much more brilliant if the editor could change the unsuitable/redundant word to a suggested one rather than just mark it to revise.
