We help students with the task description on a daily basis. However, it should be emphasized that we do not offer assistance in writing assignments. But we are happy to help with the assignment writing, in so far as it is about optimizing the language, making the language flawless, fluent and accurate.

We also help with the task description with good tips on how to read proofs yourself, and with a guide to the comma rules in the form of 8 comma hacks that will reduce the number of comma errors by 80%.

Is it legal to get help with assignment writing?

Yes, it is perfectly legal to get help. It is so legal that many supervisors on major academic assignments encourage the student to have the assignment read aloud by someone else. There are some programs where it is included in the regulations that one must not receive help with the proof, but the general thing is that it is fully legal.

It was just missing. Why should the assessment of one’s task suffer from the fact that the language may contain some errors and here and there is a bit uncertain? After all, you can be an excellent nurse, engineer or biologist, although you cannot write completely without error. It is clear that you seek help with the assignment writing if you know that the written language will drag down the censor’s overall assessment of the assignment.

And, as I said, it is perfectly legal to get help in proofreading his assignment.

Can you get help with anything other than proofreading?

At Task Correction we are happy to assist with all aspects related to the dissemination of the task, eg proofreading, structure, set-up etc. But we also want to help to check if formalia is in order. This applies to elements such as citation technique, reference technique, table of contents, bibliography and other matters of a task-technical nature.

Many of these aspects are included in the Proofing Proof form, but if we find that a customer’s wishes are outside of the proofing domain, we will open an optional extra price.

Our starting point is always the APA standard

APA is a reference system that is widely recognized in academic environments worldwide. The system provides guidelines on how to properly document your assignment through source references and bibliography.

When checking an academic assignment’s use of references, it is always based on the APA standard, so it will be the one we evaluate your assignment for. We realize that there may be different traditions in different faculties and disciplines, but APA is the standard in most places. But if you use a different standard in your study, we take that into account naturally.

Does writing in English crap?

We are also happy to assist you with your assignments in English. As mentioned before, we can’t help with the writing itself, but we can help transform your English from Danish-English into fluent English-English.

One should not underestimate the importance of submitting a flawless and well-worded assignment in English. Your censor and your supervisor will appreciate your writing skills in English, and it all counts the right way in the assessment. It is not an exaggeration to say that good English can lift the grade one level.

At Task Correction, we have gradually gathered a great deal of experience to help write English assignments. Our reviewers have English as their mother tongue, and over time they have accumulated a great deal of experience with academic proofreading. The proofreaders are physically residing in different parts of the world. For example, we have a reviewer based in Mexico, one in England and one in the United States. They all have an affiliation with Danish and understand all Danish. But above all, it is hardcore linguists with specialist knowledge of English spelling and language enhancement of assignments in English.

Task description in Word, LaTex and pdf

We fix tasks in many formats, but the most common format is Word.

Word has the clear advantage in a proofreading context that you can apply visible corrections. The feature is called Record Changes. When enabled, Word will automatically record all the corrections made by the reviewer. It may be that you delete a letter in a word, add a letter, delete a space, change the word order, rephrase an entire sentence, add or delete a comma … The program detects ALL changes and marks each change in red, so it is clear to the student where something has changed in the language.

In Word, you can also add comment boxes. It uses the reviewer to, for example, inform the writer that the language is unclear or that the reference technique used does not follow the APA standard.

We also like to fix in LaTeX.

LaTeX is an online editor where you can write your assignment. Like Word, LaTeX has a nice track changes feature, and it is also possible to write comments on the language that the student should relate to after the proofreading. Some online editors require that you have paid access to the editor in order to work with track changes. This applies, for example, to an editor like Overleaf.

The proofreader also corrects the assignment online. It simply requires the student to give the reviewer access. Typically, it’s just a link you give, and then the reviewer can get started.

At Task Correction we regularly receive inquiries about proofing texts in pdf. Of course we would like to correct in pdf, but it is not a suitable format for proofing. After all, a pdf is designed to be non-editable and therefore proofreading in pdf is very difficult. When the text is locked, ie non-editable, each change requires that you propose it in a comment box. It goes without saying that it is a cumbersome process when perhaps 30 corrections per day are required. page. It’s bothersome for both the reviewer and the customer.

Can you help yourself?

The help in writing a task that we can offer is proofreading. And just with proof, you can help yourself too. There is a lot you can do yourself to reduce the number of errors, such as giving yourself good time for proofreading, enlarging the text, reading the text aloud and using the spelling and grammar check in your editor.

If you cannot, or have the time yourself, ask a fellow student, friend, or family member for help – not for the assignment, but for proofreading. That is because you need help.
