Thesis Editing Services Reviews

“Will use Wordvice again” Wordvice saved my master’s thesis! I was stressed out because I thought I couldn’t get everything done before my deadline, but my editor was so fast and their comments guided me really well through the last phase of polishing my writing. It sounds much more academic now, and I learned a lot from the feedback my editor gave me. I will definitely use Wordvice again for my dissertation!

“Best dissertation editor EVER!” I submitted my dissertation to Wordvice before handing it in, and my editor Carla G. did such an amazing job – it was much more helpful than I had expected! She was very thorough and left many detailed suggestions in the manuscript that helped me immensely with organizing and strengthening my arguments. I got my dissertation back on time and felt very self-assured when I finally handed it in. Thank you for your very professional help.
