plagiarism check

We don't offer a standalone plagiarism check, but we do provide an extensive plagiarism check as part of our Deluxe Academic Package. That package includes structural, stylistic, and grammar editing as well as a multipage editorial letter with detailed high-level feedback and advice about your document's strengths and weaknesses, including recommendations to help you improve as an academic writer. The Deluxe Academic Package also offers unlimited revisions for 30 days, assistance in meeting the word count and formatting requirements of your target journal, and our academic publishing guidebook.

What do academics say about the value our Deluxe Academic Package provides? has worked with me over the past two years to help polish postgraduate university research. Most recently, I ordered the Deluxe Academic Package for a literature review regarding spatial relationships in the classroom. On top of helping correct my grammar, my editor delved deep into the material, making stylistic suggestions to improve the clarity of my writing. Aside from the helpful plagiarism check, my editor also helped me integrate references smoothly into the text and reduce the word count to meet my journal's submission requirements.

—Nigel, education researcher
The Deluxe Academic Package was instrumental in helping me prepare my article on corporate accelerator programs for publication. My editor not only corrected my spelling, grammar, and punctuation but reviewed the document thoroughly, rephrasing to clarify meaning and improve the style. The plagiarism check is always useful, as well, giving me peace of mind that no material from my sources has made it into the final article.

—Katja, Ph.D. candidate

I approached to translate my article on bisphosphonate therapy for dental implants from Brazilian Portuguese into English. Their translation team was able to navigate the complex scientific terminology in my material, creating an accurate and professionally edited English translation that was accepted for publication in PubMed. I feel confident that my research has been represented well in English, and I would recommend's academic translation services to my colleagues.

—Vittorio Moraschini, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, professor (translation from Portuguese to English of 1,919 words about bisphosphonate therapy in dentistry)
Translation from was invaluable in helping me expose my academic work on retail horticulture, originally written in German, to a wider English-speaking audience and making it possible for me to submit my articles for publication in English journals. Their German to UK English translators were able to seamlessly translate terms from my field and stay true to my professional academic tone. I highly recommend for high-quality academic translation.

What do academics say about the value our CV rewriting provides?

The team did amazing work, very detailed work. They rewrote sentences in order to make the meaning clearer. What I love is there were little notes asking confirmation about whether the new sentence referred to what was meant. Moreover, the result came earlier than the expected time frame. It's worth it. Excellent! Keep up the good work.

Rewriting Academic CVs as Industry-Focused Resumes

Our professional resume writers can convert your academic CV into a resume so you can pursue commercial jobs in your field. We’ll support your transition from academia to industry with customizable and affordable packages that go beyond grammar and style editing to create resumes that hiring managers love.

Writing for industry isn't like applying for academic jobs.
The standards are different; the formatting is different. It's rare that academics are familiar with their industries' latest resume standards. We are.

Industry resumes need to beat applicant tracking systems. Academic CVs do not.
Companies receive so many applications that they use applicant tracking systems (ATS) to sort through resumes. Think of an ATS like a search engine for candidates. It's hard for you, the candidate, to rank highly in an ATS unless you know what keywords to use for your field, in what quantity to use them, and where and how to place them. We do. For more on applicant tracking systems, view this article we wrote.
