English proofreading

0 Comment


English proofreading can be a crucial element when determining the grade. An undergraduate thesis in English, a thesis in English or a dissertation in English written in a correct and effortless language will make an impression, and in most cases this will affect the censor’s overall assessment of the assignment.

It is our experience that students are very proficient at writing English, but when you do not have English as their mother tongue, in most of the tasks several errors will creep in on all sides. Professional English proofing corrects the errors and makes the language flawless and fluent.

The proofreaders are experts in English

We have talented and experienced English proofreaders associated with the company and they cover both British English and American English.

Our reviewers are fully trained and professional. The same goes for our reviewers of English assignments. They all have the expertise to work with academic texts in English, either because they have English as their mother tongue or because they have a university education in English. Read more here.

We cannot promise that the reviewer who is required to correct your thesis, if any, has a specialist knowledge in the field of your thesis. It would require a large number of students from many disciplines and faculties linked to the company as loosely affiliated reviewers.

That is not our goal.

We only use pre-trained linguists: journalists, masters, correspondents, copywriters and certified reviewers. It is our way of quality assurance.

When we recruit a reviewer into English, we emphasize that the person has

  •   an in-depth knowledge of English grammar and spelling
  •   an excellent language understanding and flair for English syntax
  •   a large knowledge of scientific language and academic assignment writing.

English proofreading quality assures your assignment, so you can be absolutely sure that the language does not negatively affect the censor’s experience of the assignment. On the contrary! A good and fluent English language is a significant advantage when assessing the assignment.

The language is included in the assessment

In almost all programs, language is included in the assessment of the assignment. In the Examination Order for university programs, the language requirement is formulated as follows:

§ 26. In assessing the bachelor’s project, master’s thesis, master’s project and other major written assignments, in addition to the academic content, emphasis must also be placed on the student’s spelling and wording ability.

You must demonstrate a certainty in spelling and grammar, as well as being able to formulate fluently, clearly and accurately. Therefore, it is a good idea to have his English assignment proofread by a professional proofreader, who, in addition to a great knowledge of English spelling and grammar, also has a solid insight into academic preparation and scientific assignment writing.

corrections

Once we have proofread the assignment in English, we will send it back to you in 2 versions. In one version, all the corrections are implemented and the correction is thus invisible.

In the second version, the fixes are visible. When we correct the task, the changes are automatically detected.

You can now choose to go through the corrections one by one and accept them on an ongoing basis. But if you trust that the fixes we’ve made are correct, you can also choose to accept them all at once. Most students use the latter option. The point of proofreading is precisely that you leave the quality assurance of the language to a professional reviewer who can hug.

But if you have the time, we would recommend that you go through some of the corrections. You may become aware of error types that recur and may take this into account the next time you write a task. So potentially you can become a better writer by studying the corrections we make.

The language before and after English proofreading

When the reviewer tackles a task, she thoroughly works. The words are closely studied one by one, and all sentences are judged on the basis of precision and clarity.

The excerpt below is from an authentic study assignment. The excerpt gives a good picture of the amount of errors found in most English assignments written by students as their mother tongue.

The errors found by our English reviewer are marked in red.

Within modern welfare states, access to education is considered to be the key to social and economic development. By enhancing the population with knowledge and skills, education prepares and improves citizens’ abilities to participate in and contribute to societies and thereby strengthens a nation’s competitiveness. Education can in that sense be viewed as a central social benefit that is first and foremost an investment in the nation’s future. Furthermore, education has transformative effects as it can contribute to the reduction of social inequality and to the inclusion of citizens.

The proofreader has marked 8 errors in the excerpt. The amount of errors and the types of errors are representative of most study tasks in English. The excerpt contains word choice errors, congruency errors, genetic errors, inflection errors, and punctuation errors.

It is the task of the reviewer to correct the language so that it becomes error free. The result looks like this:

Within modern welfare states, access to education is considered the key to social and economic development. By endowing the population with knowledge and skills, education prepares and improves citizens’ abilities to participate in and contribute to society and thereby strengthens a nation’s competitiveness. Education can in that sense be viewed as a central social benefit that is first and foremost an investment in the nation’s future. Furthermore, education has transformative effects as it can contribute to the reduction of social inequality and to the inclusion of citizens.

All the errors have been fixed and the language is now correct and more fluent. Although the amount of errors is not overwhelming, one should not be mistaken for the impression the errors leave with the censor.

With English proofreading, you ensure that language is not a factor that negatively affects the censor’s overall impression of the assignment. On the contrary, the good language gives the task an overall boost that can move the character upwards.
