Anyway, even having been ordering custom papers for some time now, I stumbled upon a need to look for a new service last month. I needed a pretty simple paper on French idioms and slang, but I couldn’t find the writer for it! I knew at least three good writers who were amazing English speakers (usually this is the most important criteria for students), but no French natives, unfortunately
How EssayVikings Handled My ChallengeI found EssayVikings.com reviews in search engines and couldn’t believe my eyes – one of the reviews was written in French! So I knew that was a place for me to be.
I examined the website – it’s stylish, a little comic and not at all serious like you would imagine an educational provider. What I mean is that having seen many “wise owls in glasses” and smart PhD faces I was a little surprised to see this.
The funny thing is that even the customer support representative was surprised when I asked what languages they write in. At first the guy tried to convince me that all their writers are real English speakers, but once he understood what I meant, he suggested to place an order and said that only people who correspond to every requirement in it would be eligible to bid on it.
Placing an Order and PricesThe process of making an order is pretty much similar with the services I used before: 1. Choose the type of writing you need 2. Write your email 3. On the next page fill in the details of your order 4. Review offers for your paper 5. Choose the writer and deposit the money for the paper The prices were quite moderate, even cheaper than at the services I used before – maybe because the paper wasn’t in a very sophisticated topic. I even tried to play with the order specifications and found out that when you choose the writer level (School, University or Doctor), it directly affects the range of writers and the prices they ask for.
Dear French Writer, Where Are You?I have to mention it in this EssayVikings.com review just to be fair – the first French speaking writer showed up within an hour after placing my order. But my challenge was that I needed both: somebody fluent in English and French at the same time. Because I was convinced that only a native speaker can compare slang expressions and idioms.
What upset me a little is that I didn’t find a way to browse ALL the database of their writers – I could see only:
1) Top writers on their main website page
2) A dozen of writers who applied for my order
My curious mind wanted to see who else was out there and maybe convince someone who didn’t bid on my project to write for me. But I didn’t find access to see all thee existing writers. Please comment in this review for EssayVikings.com if you know where to look for it, I’d greatly appreciate it.
Finally after a day of talking to writers (who don’t reply that quickly, I must say), I found the one who sounded competent and confined in him with my paper.
Did EssayVikings satisfy my expectations?My paper was only 2 pages, but I didn’t want to pay extra for the urgency and set a deadline for it in a week. Can you imagine what was my surprise when 3 days later I received in my mailbox a notification to review the paper? At first I thought that this was just an outline – but no, it was a full paper, formatted and cited.
The paper was quite good, but of course having 4 extra days before the deadline and benefitting from the fact that I haven’t released the money to the writer yet, I asked to change some expressions in the text. I found them pretty basic and wanted the writer to substitute them with more rare ones. I understood that the writer didn’t necessary have to do it – the paper was written according to all my demands and there was nothing “essential” to correct. But the writer accepted my whim and did everything as instructed.
Overall I think EssayVikings.com writing is good. What is even better is their customer support – they try to find approach to every “non-standard” order and I felt that they value me as a customer.
Oh, yeah, something you all came here for – was there plagiarism in my Essay Vikings essay? No, there wasn’t. Otherwise I wouldn’t have taken my sweet time to even write this review.
