Are you looking for a reviewer?
If you are looking for a reviewer to quality-assure the language of your assignment, you have landed in the right place, whether it is a reviewer for a bachelor project, a thesis, a dissertation or another assignment. We always have a skilled reviewer ready to follow the language of your assignment with a close comb.
Thoroughness and attention to detail are features of the way we proofread tasks. We go in depth with the language of the assignment: the words, punctuation, spelling, grammar and syntax. The language gets the big turn once the reviewer gets started.
Our reviewers are trained and experienced task writers, and proofreading is their professional meta.
How does a reviewer work?
Proofreading requires concentration, calm and focus. It is important that you assume that every word contains a mistake so that you do not lose focus on each word. Most people have tried to read over mistakes because you read too fast or because you do not expect a mistake in exactly one or the other group of words.
A reviewer knows that the devil is in the detail
The first thing the reviewer does when he / she gets a review assignment is to get an impression of the topic, content, structure and language level of the assignment. It is important to have an impression of the task before the proofreading starts, so that the proofreading can be adapted to the individual task.
Of course, a mistake is a mistake, but the reviewer continuously assesses whether the language makes sense, whether the sentences are appropriate in the specific academic context and whether there is consistency and uniqueness in the use of language. Therefore, the reviewer must form an impression of the task first.
Now the proofreading starts. We use the ‘Record Changes’ feature when we correct tasks in Word. It has the advantage that the customer can see the changes the reviewer has made.
The page here gives you an insight into a review process. You can also see an example of language optimization of an excerpt from a bachelor project.
Along with the corrections, the reviewer also assesses other elements of the language, such as whether the meaning is unclear, whether correct quotation technique has been used and whether the language is redundant (many repetitions). If the reviewer discovers any discrepancies, but which are not definitely errors, he / she will leave a comment in the margin to the customer.
Then it is up to the customer to decide whether to act on the reviewer’s comment.
What can a reviewer do?
Of course, a reviewer in English has a thorough knowledge of the rules of spelling. The proofreader must know everything about compositions, forms of inflection, orthography, punctuation rules, syntax rules and so on. In short, the reviewer must be an expert in English language.
But a reviewer must also have a good understanding of the language. The basis is, of course, the writing of justice, but you may experience tasks that are formally correct but which nevertheless do not have a good language. Good language is correct, but it is also varied, fluent and unique.
A reviewer needs to have a good look.
The special feature of proofreading, ie proofreading of study assignments, is that the texts are academic and scientific. Scientific texts explore an area, issue, or issue where other genres may be enlightening, regulatory, argumentative, or entertaining. Scientific assignments are also subject-oriented and use a professional language.
A good reviewer of study assignments is someone who is familiar with scientific assignments and academic writing. Therefore, all reviewers are people with a great deal of knowledge and experience with scientific assignment writing.

How fast does a reviewer work?
Proofreading is a tedious process that requires patience and concentration. But it is clear that there must also be some momentum when the price is relatively low.
A skilled and experienced reviewer corrects approximately 8-10 pages per page. per hour, corresponding to well over 20000 characters. But the speed, of course, depends on the number of errors to be corrected. It is usually with 20-40 errors per page, but if there are several errors, the naturis reviewer takes longer to correct.
But the cost of proofreading is always the same, regardless of the language level of the assignment. However, we reserve the right to reject an assignment if the language of the assignment has a level that would require a rewrite to correct.
