What kind of proofreading do we do?

At McGowan Transcriptions we offer our proofreading services to a huge variety of different subject areas. These include, but are not limited to:

Academic proofreading services – Our academic editing services include research papers, PhD thesis, dissertations and many more. These are all hugely beneficial to anyone and everyone completing any academic writing. Academic style services are very popular amongst international ESL students, who have English as their second language, and at times struggle with the intricacies of the English language. They can greatly benefit from having a proofreader with years of experience and English as their native language to help with their academic papers.

PhD Thesis – Our highly experienced team of copy editors are here to help you maximise your results. Why let years of hard work go to waste due to minor weaknesses in your writing style.

Are you an ESL student struggling slightly to fully get to grips with the intricacies of the English language and worrying about how it may affect your dissertation results? We can ensure that your writing reads as if you were yourself, a confident native English speaker. 

Journal articles – We can offer both scientific journal and academic journal proofreading services. We can correct more complicated aspects such as improving and enhancing the text flow, clarity, style and tone. You will get all the help needed to have the best possible chance of getting published in your intended journal.
