There was a period when I urgently needed an essay proofreader. I didn’t have much time to look for the perfect one, so I just chose the first relevant result. So I got to buy proof reading services from proofreading.org and here I am now, sharing my review with you.
I can’t criticize the team and the services offered, as it did its best to eliminate all the mistakes from the text and to respect my deadline. But I can’t state that this is the best online company I have ever worked with. All in all, the final result was just fine – I could submit the paper without having to worry about things like misspellings, grammar or punctuation errors, or formatting mistakes.
The services offered by this company are categorized in six sections: for ESL students and academic texts; for businesses and organizations; university proofreading; dissertation or thesis proofreading; APA proofreading and editing; and MLA proofreading and editing. The academic services include editing and proofreading servicesfor thesis, dissertation, papers, manuscripts, essays, reports, assignments, applications and audio transcripts.
Unfortunately, I found no discount program on this website. They don’t have price lists either. So I went directly to the ordering page and this is how I found out that a page of 250 words costs $19.90 for 24 hour delivery and $29.85 for 12 hour emergency. Although I must admit these prices are quite high, I still placed the order. Well, as I mentioned above, the results deserved the money. However, I can’t afford to edit my paper in here very often due to my limited budget.
The services offered and the prices do not depend on the students’ academic level. All papers are treated the same. I could have introduced the academic field of my paper, but the indications said this was optional, so I thought it would make no difference. Anyway, it would have been great to have the possibility of choosing to work with an editor who held a university diploma in that particular area. In this way, he/she could have improved the text even better.
Among the aspects that made me use these editing services online I can mention the following:
- The fast delivery time – as I said before, the longest deadline is of 24 hours; anyway, this depends on the total number of words of your paper – still, the editors are human, they cannot do the impossible;
- The fact that the website has hired native speaking proofreaders from top UK/US universities – I know a lot of websites out there that pretend to have native employees, but in fact they are working with freelancers all over the world; so I took the company’s word this time, because it is related to Cambridge;
- The fact that the company delivers the final text with Track Changes – in this way, I could see the modifications and learn from experienced editors how to avoid certain mistakes and improve my text.
