Skilled proofreaders for student proofreading

0 Comment


Our English reviewers are writing-language nerds with the ability to spot errors in a text. At Task Correction we only use educated and professional linguists for study proof. The proofreaders have backgrounds as a journalist, correspondent and MSc. We also have copywriters, translators, and reviewers who have taken the extended proofreading program associated with the company.

We prioritize having few, but in turn, well-trained and experienced reviewers. Due to the limited number, we cannot guarantee that the reviewer has a thorough knowledge of the subject area of the assignment. It would require a large number of freelance reviewers from various disciplines and faculties associated with the company – typically students. We do not want that. We prioritize knowledge about language, experience with academic proofreading and insight into scientific assignment writing, because it provides the best study proofing.

In this example of proofreading, you can follow a proofreading process and gain insight into what it typically is for errors that the reviewer identifies and corrects.

The task you are given back is flawless and the language has received a significant boost, so you can be sure that the language does not pull the character down. On the contrary. A good language will in many cases result in a higher grade. The language is ALWAYS included in the assessment of assignments in higher education.

We work every day to provide good customer service and high quality in our proofreading.

Study correction – Price calculator

The price of student proof must reflect that as a student, you do not earn a fortune. That’s why we offer the lowest price on the market.

In the Price Calculator, you can check the total cost of a job if you know the job’s total number of normal pages. A normal page corresponds to 2400 characters incl. gap.

You can write to us and get a good quote on proofreading. If you are unsure about the quality of our work, you can take advantage of the free trial proofing option.

We are honorary and dedicated linguists on our website, so there is nothing more distant to us than delivering a mediocre quality. Therefore, you only pay for the study correction once you have approved it. It is your guarantee that we will perform the proofreading with high quality.

Why study correction?

It is crucial to the overall impression of your assignment that the content is conveyed in a correct and fluent language. A good language raises the overall level of the assignment, whether the academic field is natural sciences, humanities or social sciences.

5 reasons to get your assignment proofread:

  • The language is ALWAYS included in the assessment of the assignment (cf. various curricula and examinations)
  • You can give the professional content full attention
  • It’s a cheap way to raise the level of the task
  • It is perfectly legal to have its task done through linguistically
  • Few people write correctly.

Student proof of thesis

The thesis marks the end of the program and it is therefore an important task. We are experts in proofreading of theses. We have competent reviewers.

Student proof of bachelor project

We have a great routine in proofreading of undergraduate projects. This is probably the type of task we do most. Our reviewers are professional and have a special nose for spotting mistakes in the language. The proofreaders themselves are very skilled writers who can write fluently, clearly and in a scientific language. It is a prerequisite for them to be able to rewrite obscure language in the undergraduate assignments they are performing.

Student proof of PhD dissertations

PhD dissertations are assignments at the highest academic and scientific level. PhD proofing therefore requires a reviewer who is familiar with academic assignment writing and dissemination of subject-specific knowledge.

We therefore have highly trained and experienced reviewers to handle the proofreading of PhD theses.

Study correction of small tasks and synopses

Proof Mini is the proof of small tasks and synopses. And we have knocked the prize down so that all students can join.

English study proof

More and more study assignments are written in English, which is why we also offer English proofreading. Our English reviewer will go through the language with a close comb and remove all spelling, grammar and punctuation irregularities. The correction also addresses the so-called dancings, ie phrases and phrases that are infected by spelling and word order.

With English proofreading, you make sure that the language of the assignment is a co-player, not an opponent when determining the grade.

Higher grade

Of course, it is not the case that you are guaranteed a good character with a good language. You will only get a good grade if the professional level of the assignment meets the requirements of the course. But good language is included in the assessment of the assignment. A language of errors and ambiguities pulls the character down, while a correct and fluent language pulls the character up. In all cases where an assignment is considered to be somewhere between two grades, for example in the range of 4 to 7 or in the range of 10 to 12, it is almost always the language that is decisive for the final grade.

This is why you are always advised to read thorough proofs of your assignment.

However, it can be difficult to focus both on the professional content of the assignment and the language design. If you leave the proof to us, you can concentrate on the content. At Task Correction we have professional reviewers who ensure that your assignment is completed correctly and clearly.

And we always have fixed low prices for student proofing. Read more about cheap proofing here.

Study correction at all language levels

Language is something that works on several levels.

The language has a formal page that must be correct. That’s all it’s about writing. Spelling refers to the spelling of words, the inflection of words, the commutation, the syntactic rules, the use of capital letters, the use of abbreviations and so on.

Good language is also fluent, clear and precise. The fact that it is fluent means that the language is varied in vocabulary and syntax, so that the same words are not repeated too many times and that at the sentence level there is a variation of sentence types and sentence length.

The fact that the language is clear and precise means that the word choice is accurate and that the language is used economically in the sense of formulating oneself without fullness. One should formulate briefly and clearly. And in order to be able to formulate briefly and clearly, one must use the subject terminology that applies in the current field of study.

For laymen, professional terms will make the text difficult to understand. However, for a reader who knows the concepts of the subject, proper use of the subject’s language is essential for the dissemination.

What does the censor weigh?

The examiner emphasizes language because the student’s spelling and wording skills MUST be included in the assessment. It states in the Examination Order for both the university programs and the vocational vocational programs.

One aspect of good language is the degree of correctness of language. Proper language promotes the dissemination of professional content.

But correctness is just one of several elements. Also included in the overall assessment is whether the professional content is communicated in a clear and fluent language. It is a common misconception that easy and straightforward language is non-academic. It is assumed that linguistic complexity and high lix are equal to high linguistic level.

This is not how the censor looks at it.

The language must of course be professional and kept in a neutral and sober style, but it must also be easy to read. There must be a flow, a precision and an ease in the language – even if it is rich in subject concepts.

Finally, the degree of language of science plays into the overall assessment of the dissemination. A scientific language is a language in which the student explains and reflexively the concepts, theories and methods used in the assignment. Scientific language is also a language that correctly uses the subject’s terminology in dissemination. And then there is also a high degree of scholarship in the mastery of academic modes of presentation such as reasoning, analyzing, assessing, discussing and perspective.

No proof reading can lift an unscientific language to a scientific one. This requires a definite rewrite of the assignment. But a proficient reviewer can – depending on the linguistic point of view – lift the overall dissemination of the assignment by making the language correct, clearer, more fluent and more consistent.

It will – all else being equal – make the task better.
