在學術英文界，為了要能跟國際溝通、接軌，就必須要用英文寫作。學術英文 (academic English) 相較於一般英文 (general English)，已被視為一種特定的文體，各種不同研究領域如人文或科技英文論文的寫作，雖然有內容和文字使用上的差異，但也不乏許多共同的語言特色和格式要求。
Academic writing is different to the kinds of written work associated with journalism, business or personal letters. It is primarily for work done at a tertiary level of education and for work done by researchers and academics.
Midgard has helped many senior academics and scientists by proofreading and editing their written work before it was accepted for publication. Without such professional proofreading, the work would not have been accepted. In many cases, customers have contacted me to proofread their English writing because it has been rejected on first submission to a scholarly journal or publisher due to having too many spelling, grammar and punctuation errors. In most of these cases, the documents concerned were accepted for publication after proofreading.
語言格式可以是英式或美式英語；參考文獻格式可以是Harvard referencing, Chicago referencing, APA style或目標期刊網站的作者指南連結(author instructions)等，若您沒有指定之格式，我將不會改變原有格式並確保文章格式的一致性
The format should be either British or American English. The style guide could be Harvard referencing, Chicago referencing, APA style, or a weblink to author instructions of a journal, etc. If no style guide is supplied, I correct references to the style that is prevalent in the document to ensure continuity.
一旦收到您的校稿文件，我會用Microsoft Word進行字數統計（工具→字數統計 …）。
As soon as I receive your document, I will carry out a word count in Microsoft Word (Tools → Word count…).
我使用Microsoft Word的追蹤修定功能校對和編輯您的文件。這是一個安裝在大多數版本Microsoft Word的標準功能。此
Your document is proofread using the ‘track changes’ function of Microsoft Word. This is a standard function installed in most versions of Microsoft Word.
When I have finished proofreading, I will return two files to you: a “changes tracked” version and a “proofread” version of your document.
The advantage of this method is that in the changes tracked version of your document you can easily move between the editing changes I have made. The proofread version is ready to print out and you do not have to type in all the changes yourself.
