Re: English help on master thesis

A post on Ef is hardly a formal letter- and perhaps less formal than an e-mail. It is more like a conversation. You constantly use silly 'teenage speak' which makes me cringe- but I would never remark on it. And we are both non native English speakers.

Re: English help on master thesis

fm. My 'critique' was an example of how proofreading can get out of hand quickly and usually turns out to be more than "could you just....".

OF COURSE I don't do it for every post made. My *opinion* (and it was stated as such), professional or otherwise, about "Best" still stands.


gfy ;-)

Thanks you for your immediate replies which I was for sure not expecting. I was instructed by the tutor to get my thesis proofread so I hope this doesn't count as cheating. It should be purely grammar proofreading. My thesis topic is about Breastfeeding and Child Morbidity. I would really appreciate it if someone can help out.
Of course this isnít cheating. Even native English speakers have their work proofread.

Some questions -
How long is your thesis (Number of words, pages)
Is it nursing or more like epidemiology
Is there an experiment or survey - do you need to have formatting help as well as language?
Have you formatted the references, citations, footnotes, whatever.

These are highly relevant and I am sorry not have it mentioned before.

The thesis has about 6000 words and 20 pages.
It is epidemiolog(statistical) based on surveys.
Formating is my task however advice would be nice to have.
Citation, footnote etc are all my tasks, recommendations and advices welcome but not a must.

Thank you very much for your intention to help.

The only reason it sounded like cheating was that it sounded like English was the subject of the thesis, but clearly that's not the case, so please feel free to ignore any such comments

Re: English help on master thesis

Dear YoYo,

I work at Uni Bern (across a number of faculties) and have quite a bit of proofreading experience by now. If your friend cannot help then please get in touch.

My 'price' is that you offer some support on here to other students asking for help with studying and working in Switzerland.

Best,
Homer

Hi Homer, thanks for offering your help. It's really nice of you. Your 'price' is quite fair. In case I need further help, I will let you know.
