Explanation by BachelorPrint

What is meant:

  • Spelling correction
  • Punctuation correction (comma, full stop, hyphen, dash etc.)
  • Grammar correction (declension, conjugation, tense consistency etc.).

In proofreading, the focus is on spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

Explanation by BachelorPrint

For many people, this definition raises more questions than it answers. We’ll give you an understandable explanation of the editing of academic papers.

In academic editing:

  • the writing style of the Bachelor’s thesis, Master’s thesis, or other work will be optimised.
  • the expression will be improved by replacing terms with more appropriate formulations.
  • makes your work into a easily readable text and not simply a sequence of facts.
  • in addition to the optimisation of the language, a classic proofreading will be carried out in which spelling, punctuation, and grammar will be corrected.
  • your intellectual property will not be changed, but will remain self-written and authentic
  • the ‘thread’ through the work will be improved

Proofreading or Editing PLUS – Who needs what?

As different as students are from each other, so are their language skills. Some still have trouble finding the right words, but are great at spelling and punctuation. Others have trouble with the formal aspects, but can express themselves perfectly.

In particular with important theses, such as a Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis, you feel under pressure to make no mistakes. Yet the opposite is often the case and instead of excellently written formulations, the work is simply a list of facts and the simplest comma rules are just forgotten. Here Editing PLUS, or at least proofreading, would make the all important difference.
