What is Proofreading?

Essentially, proofreading describes the process of checking and correcting text in different aspects. This includes reviewing the grammar and syntax of a written work, ensuring correct sentence structure and punctuation. Our proofreading service also conducts a spell check of the entire document to make sure all words are spelled correctly.

What proofreading entails:

  • Correction of spelling mistakes
  • Sets correct punctuation
  • Grammar correction
  • Identifies and corrects typographical errors

What is Editing?

In the editing process, we go deeper and optimize the overall writing style of your thesis or dissertation. Thereby, we adjust formulations by immersing appropriate terminology, ensuring that the text is logical, clear, and easy to read. In addition, our editing service includes improving the style, tone, and formatting like the layout, headings, and spacing so it has a consistent flow.

What editing entails:

  • Optimizes writing style
  • Ensures clarity and readability
  • Keeps consistency and flow
  • Corrects formatting

What Is the Correct Choice?

Each student has a different writing style and also a different level of language skills. Some may have their weaknesses in their formulation, but their strengths in spelling and punctuation, while others may struggle with the formalities, but compensate with an advanced skill in expression and conveying context.

Generally, measuring your own skills and evaluating what is best for you, is a difficult task, making it hard to set your priorities straight. At BachelorPrint you don’t need to worry because our proofreading and editing services go hand in hand. This means that you will benefit from both services, as editing comes along with proofreading and the other way around. It is important to us that students receive the most effective options to optimize their academic work to their fullest potential, which is why we aimed for a fusion of both, proofreading and editing.

Worth every penny!

The comments and suggested changes were incredibly good, easy to understand and well argued. I chose the proofreading, structure check, and clarity check and it did not disappoint. I will definitely use this service again in the future. Highly recommended!

Extremely professional and timely

Extremely professional and timely! Regis did an amazing job bringing my admission essay to life. It went from overly wordy and unclear to very professional and concise. If I don’t get into my desired program, it won’t be because of my essay.
