Student Proofreading

 

Feedback

It was really useful and efficient for me to send my papers for proofreading to English Language Centre as I always receive my documents on time and without any error. I feel that I was really lucky that I could find English Language Centre.

Which level of editing?

Proofreading

At the student proofreading level, your document will be checked for errors in spelling, punctuation and English grammar. The whole document will be reviewed twice to remove all typographic errors, while your references will be checked in the main body of the document and your references list/bibliography. This service is recommended for authors who feel confident about their English language usage, but would like a second pair of eyes to review their document without making any fundamental changes.

 

The proofreading process will:

  • Remove typographic errors ✓
  • Repair spelling, grammar and punctuation ✓
  • Ensure consistency of abbreviations ✓
  • Adjust in-text and final references ✓
  • Review and adjust table and figure labels ✓

Editing

At the student editing level, your document will not only be proofread for inaccuracies in spelling, punctuation and grammar, but will also be developed from a style and readability perspective. Therefore, repeated terms will be substituted with appropriate synonyms, short sentences will be combined using linking structures, sentences will be rephrased where necessary, and the overall written standard of the document enhanced to the level of a native English reader’s expectations. Feedback and advice will also be given on your writing content and referencing approach, suitability of sources, etc.
