You’ve completed all the research, you’ve written up your findings, and now Business Friend can proofread your dissertation to ensure it clearly represents all your hard work!

Dissertations are a vital part of a degree.  Hours and hours of work can go into gathering information and writing up the results of the extensive research carried out.  By proofreading your dissertation, we can ensure your work is not let down by spelling mistakes or grammatical errors.  And our experienced academic proofreaders understand what academics are looking for when reading your dissertation and can advise you on the correct structure required.

Our proofreading service is more than a spelling and grammar review.  Sentence structure, syntax and verb tenses will also be thoroughly examined, and amended accordingly, to improve your dissertation in preparation for its submission.  We also offer a cross reference checking service to ensure that any references throughout your paper are recorded correctly.

Many of the dissertations proofread by Business Friend are those of non-English native speaking students, who have English as their second language (ESL).  Our experienced native English speaking proofreaders can ensure that academic papers meet the standards expected by British universities.  For example, if your dissertation has been translated into English, Business Friend’s proofreaders will thoroughly check that the translated document coherently reflects your findings and is grammatically correct in either UK (British) English or US (American) English.

You will receive your proofread dissertation in Word with all changes clearly marked up, so you can see exactly what has been amended.  Your proofreader will also explain why they have made some of the key changes, so you can benefit from their experience and expertise in academic writing for years to come.
