Service for Students

Are you looking for a reliable partner for the transcription of interviews for your scientific paper or editing and proofreading of your scientific paper? That’s no problem. Just get in touch with us!

Transcription of Interviews

Do you have many hours of interviews on tape? Perhaps you have already started transcribing the tapes. Your deadline is creeping up on you, and you seem to be getting nowhere with the transcriptions? Many before you have underestimated this task! Let us take over the task of transcribing your interviews and other audio data. We will take your special requests into consideration when completing the assignment for you, such as brushing up the spoken word or adding time codes, as well as transcribing background sounds, pauses in speech, laughing and other non-verbal reactions.

Editing and Proofreading

Not sure whether errors have crept into your thesis? Punctuation and spelling are not among your best talents? You love using clichés? Nobody’s perfect! We will take over the proofreading of your scientific paper – both editing and proofreading, and naturally in languages other than English too. Leave the fine-tuning to us, and focus all your efforts on the really important matters.
