Proofreading and copy-editing for students

When is professional proofreading and copy-editing beneficial?

Free of spelling mistakes, correct in content, methodically correct and in scientifically adequate language - this is how an academic text should be, starting with term papers or seminar papers up to the final thesis (bachelor's thesis, master's thesis or diploma thesis) or doctoral dissertation. For a variety of reasons, situations may arise in which help is needed, for example:

  • Choose our proofreading service if you are unsure about spelling, punctuation, grammar, sentence structure (syntax).
  • Choose our copy-editing service if you are unsure about your general language skills or about your language skills regarding your specialist field.
  • Choose our editing and/or coaching if you are unsure about scientific writing: basic questions about how a scientific paper should be structured and ultimately written.
  • Choose our coaching if you have inadequate time management - usually neglected or not learned and practised, so that time pressure arises, which is a frequent problem, especially while writing the final thesis.
  • Choose our copy-editing service for foreign language problems because the thesis is written in a language other than your own mother tongue.

This is where we come in as professional service providers by helping you with our expertise - by proofreading your academic text to remove  final mistakes or by copy-editing your academic text if you have major difficulties with academic language.
