An Excellent Job

I just had another assignment proofread with all the add-ons. I must say that Ben is outstanding with his editing and feedbacks, comments, etc., and I'm really learning from him too. I wonder when I will be able to write without so many mistakes. Although there are some issues with the referencing, I don't fault them as even the same referencing are different in different universities so I'm not too concern as knowing Scribbr, they will correct/revise them effectively for me. As such, I can safely give them 6 stars.

Overall a quite good experience

Overall a quite good experience. The comments were helpful and helped me improve the academic language, structure, and clarity of my writing. Suggestions were left for confirmation or dismissal. Due to a technical glitch in merging documents on the editor's end, the citation review had to be redone before I could use it. Then however the results were absolutely within expectations. Most importantly, once given deadlines were held.

Great service

I used the citation editing service; it was very helpful. I know there's several citation generators out there, but it's always good to have a live person check your work. Will use this service in the future.

My experience

Very kind team, very easy service, very competent and professional editor, and perhaps, an improvable correction interface. I think pdf correction tools offer an enhanced user-editor experience than microsoft word ones.

Review

Omg thank you SO much to Scribbr for help. I would DIE if I had to cite something in MLA format 18 times. It’s so helpful, would definitely recommend it! They fill in everything except for the website for you! SO helpful - can't express my gratitude for it! It's free and convenient! (lol now i dont have to manually do everything and watch billie eilish ads for 30secs to continue) ~Student

Very Professional Service

Very Professional Service I requested for some checking as I thought that some sentences and words didn't gave the correct meaning. I did revised the conclusion as I was told that it was weak. They told me to raise another order for them to take a look. So forget it. I started to source for alternative proofreaders. Anyway, other works by them were good. 16/11/2021 Sorry for the late Update. Scribbr responded immediately within an hour of my post. We had a good discussion and they were agreeable to what I have stated. We came to an amiable solution although I think it is too generous of them. But whatever initial "grievances" (for lack of a better word) I had, I cannot deny the fact that Scribbr is very good in their work and I seriously haven't found any other company that I would go to.
