Usefull tip for proofreading
Ask for the price of the proofreading without specific information!
"I am writing my bachelor's thesis and would like to have proofreading done then. How much would that cost?"
For a concrete proposal, this is about as precise a statement as addressing the saleswoman at the cheese counter with "One cheese, please."
I am intentionally exaggerating the comparisons. This is because it is apparently not generally known that proofreading a text is a very precise job that must also be calculated just as precisely.
Therefore, please be sure to provide answers to the following questions in the initial request for https://editius.com/dissertation-formatting-service/ proofreading:
What type of text is it? A bachelor's, master's or diploma thesis or not a dissertation at all?
Each type of work makes special demands on the writer: a bachelor's thesis makes fewer demands on academic writing than a dissertation by a student who has been cramming the process of academic writing for many years.
Approximately how long is the paper or how long will it be? (including table of contents, bibliography(https://editius.com/proofread-my-paper/ take only 1 hour to do it), list of tables, list of figures, and list of abbreviations).
To be able to indicate approximately how many pages a paper will have is absolutely necessary for a calculation of the price. After all, the supervisor of the thesis also wants to know how many pages still need to be checked by him. It is not uncommon for the university/university of applied sciences to give very precise specifications for the maximum length of theses.
A conscientious and good proofreader also proofreads all indexes! It is not uncommon for typos or incorrect numbering to be hidden in them.
When is the thesis finished and can be sent to the proofreader as a complete and self-contained file (see also point 5)?
Knowing as precisely as possible by when the work will be completed makes it much easier for the https://editius.com/cover-letter-editing/ to plan time capacities. After all, he or she does not have infinite time and usually has several other projects going on. Above all, it is important to send the work completely as a file - please do not save chapters as individual files and then send several individual files. The proofreader works a lot with search+replace routines, which can only be performed on a large overall file.
