as a dyslexic I used Cambridge proofreading throughout my time at university to double check all my course work and assignments. with their feedback I managed to improve my written English. their fast turn around and accurate proofreading helped me to achieve a first class mark for my dissertation.
It is my first time to submit a technical paper for editing, and it was right decision to get it reviewed and edited by one of Cambridge Proofreading professional editors. I am very happy to see my important document just perfect. At the same time, It is good opportunity and exercise to notice my mistakes and weakness so that I will avoid it in the future.
Initially, I was truly disappointed with the service provided.
The quality of the service was rather poor. I expected to have my manuscript rephrased at some parts to make it more fluent or select better wording. Unfortunately, I saw no professional effort put on editing.
Mr Wilson, the Editing Manager, contacted me promptly. I really appreciated his courtesy and the efforts to make the revision better. My paper was revised again and Mr Wilson himself made a final editing.
My first rating was 2 stars. However, due to an outstanding customer service, I give them now 4 stars. They were really worried about my manuscript and put a great effort to make it better.
I was so grateful for this great work, that I considered sending a thank you mail. What I can say is that I am very pleased with the proofreading, it is exactly what my document needed. The work was very well done, just excellent. A big thank you from me! I will certainly use Cambridge Proofreading again when I need some document to be checked.
Thanks for Cambridgeprooreading. As they did what I want exactly. They revise the research article very well and finish their work in time (24 hours) exactly. I will use this service again. Thank you very much. Dr. Rehab Mahmoud Abd El-Baky
I can highly recommend the Cambridge Proofreading LTD to anyone who needs a very capable, time-considerate, precise proofreader for every topic. I've been using them throughout my whole Masters degree and compared to other proofreaders that my classmates were using Cambridge Proofreading LTD was always putting that certain something into it (in terms of comments or recommendations even topic wise). The price is fair and reasonable and even if you forgot to transfer money to your PayPal account in time, they're willing to offer you alternatives to get things done. I am very pleased with this company!!
Cambridge Proofreading did exactly what I was looking for: reading an important letter of mine, correcting spelling mistakes, in a very short amount of time, smoothly. No more no less. On top, I got positive feedback on a piece I wouldn't wanna show to everyone.
I am a researcher in health policy and have been using this service consistently over the the part three years. I first heard of "Cambridge Proofreading" by searching for proofreading services on google. I decided to try their service as there was clear information on deadlines and because they accept paypal payment. At that time I was a PhD student in social policy at the University of Edinburgh. Having to write many draft chapters of my thesis, I thought it would make it easier for my supervisors to read a language corrected version. Even if those were not final versions, this would allow them to concentrate on my argument, instead of getting distracted by typos or grammar mistakes. The result was that my thesis was approved without any corrections. The examiners were impressed that I managed to deliver a full document withiout any further corrections. I am really thankful for "Cambridge Proofreading" service for this.
Currently, I act as a consultant for several international agencies and need to write many reports, short communications and others. Sometimes these have a really short deadline and must not have any language inaccuracy. I have no doubt that I can submit a document to the "Cambridge Proofreading" and they will promptly return to me on time.
Also, I also need to write scientific papers, mostly in English, and for these too I use the "Cambridge Proofreading" service. They provide accurate proofreading, without changing the meaning of my sentences, which is a very important skill for a proofreader. Once I needed to submit a brief conference paper, within a day. They returned to in less than 24h.
I enthusiastically recommend their service to my colleagues and students.
The advantage of this company is that they do it fast. However, in my case the quality of the proof reading was rather poor. If you have a scientific paper to proofread then you expect something more than adding missing 'the' and 'a' or correcting simple mistakes. You expect the person who proofread to rephrase some parts to make it better or just use better wording.
In my case they only fix some of the bugs and after the service I found even some more mistakes which I had to fix myself.
I want to thank you at Cambridge Proofreading. I was very happy to find a service that could help me to improve my CV for the British market. It was very quick, within one day and very affordable. The ideas were written clearly. I hope I will stand out now and will find a job. I can only recommend the service especially if you need something proofread short notice. Good job!.
Overall, I am disappointed at the revision made. In the initial contact emails, I asked if they would do some editing on my work in addition to the basic proofreading. One editor got back to me and told me that their proofreading service also include editing service at no additional charge. My work was returned to me after about 24 hours. However, I was dissatisfied after reviewing the work sent back to me. To me it was mostly correction on grammars and typos. I barely saw any effort put on editing.
First, I found in the revised version that there is still some grammar mistakes and typos that have not been corrected.
Second, I did not see the kind of editing as I expected. When I wrote my paper, I was not sure about some choices of words and terminologies, while in the revised work those words are still there. Moreover, as a non-native English speaker, I felt the most significant problem is the connection between sentences and paragraphs. However, in the revised work I did not find much improvement in this aspect. There are several paragraphs left intact. To me, it seems that the reviewer did not bother to give serious reviews on those paragraphs.
I told them my thoughts on the reviewed work in their follow up emails. One editor promised to ask the proofreader to review it again. I asked if I could have another proofreader to review my work as I am not happy with the first one. However, I never heard anything back from them until now.
- Update on Jan 22nd 2014 Initially I gave the company a two star because of the issues stated above. One of their managers saw the comments and sent me a response email. In the email, the manager apologized for missing my communication and offered a full refund. The manager also offered to re-check my work for free. I have not got back my work from the second check so I could not tell how much improvement they would make on the first check. The extra star I give to them is solely for their good customer service.
- Update on Feb 7th 2014 The company got back to me after having a second reviewer to check my work. The quality in the second version is much improved and meets most of my expectations. If you are writing an academic paper at graduate level, it is really important to make sure that they assign you the right reviewer. Otherwise there is a chance that you would not get a satisfactory result from the first review.
I want to thank you for the quality serviced at The Cambridge Proofreading Ltd,.This was the first time I chose this company, however, I was extreme satisfy with the careful and detail work for my master thesis. The editor revised my thesis professionally and he/she made my writing more tight and logical. Moreover, it was an amazing surprise about proof reading I have know.
I have used this service several times and always received my reviews before the dead line ended. The reviews were well done and the reviewers also sent a helpful feedback on my text. After I submitted my texts, I received an immediate reply from the company how to proceed . The payment is easily done by paypal. I can really recommend this service !!
