Our Frequently Asked Questions

Before you submit a document for proofreading you will probably have some questions you need to ask.  The answers to the more common ones are provided here.  If you still have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. 

Questions With Regard to Academic Proofreading

As part of the proofreading service, we will edit your work so that it makes complete sense. However, we will not help you write your assignment or thesis. What we will do is ensure that the English is of the highest possible quality.

We are so sure of the quality of our proofreading that if you are unsatisfied we will give you your money back. Alternatively, we will go over your document again to remedy any aspects that might concern you.

The payment system used by Academic Proofreading is entirely safe.

No. The reason why we can charge so little for our proofreading services is that electronic transmission is fast, efficient and cheap.

Work will be returned within three working days for a short piece of work (e.g. a 3,000 word assignment.). An extended piece of work (e.g. a 70,000 word thesis) will be returned within ten working days. We feel that if we return a piece of work any sooner than this, the quality of the proofreading will suffer. However, if you need a piece more quickly – to meet a deadline for example – we offer a speedier service. 

The majority of text editing software have a facility to supply the total number of words in a document. Since a large percentage of our submissions are files created using Microsoft Word, we’ll explain the procedure here. Open your file in MS Word, then click ‘Tools’ in the menu bar, and then ‘Word Count’ from the drop-down menu. This will give you the total word count for your document.

We have no problem with the number of words your submission contains. If in any doubt, please contact us.
