About

Alen Nye has repeatedly proven to be the best editor that I have ever had the privilege to work with. She has efficiently edited my work quickly and competently, despite numerous spelling and grammar errors spread over hundreds of pages. My work came back to me ahead of schedule and clean of errors. She has the amazing ability to work with both my artistic writing style and limited grammatical abilities, to find that middle ground where my artistic voice is at it‘s best. There is no other editor that I would prefer to work with and I greatly look forward to working with her in the future.

About

If you are looking for a reliable, professional editor who can help you prepare a top quality, professional document, then Dr. Berman is your answer. I was struggling with writing papers for a graduate level class, and my grades were suffering as a result. Dr. Berman not only helped me produce an amazing paper, but also helped me to understand how to write a good paper, so I would have the tools to do assignments independently in the future. He worked with me to teach me how to select a good topic, find the best sources, design an outline, and then do the actual writing. He helped me identify aspects of my writing that needed improvement, and guided me in the editing process. What I ended up with, according to the instructor, was the best paper in the class! Dr. Berman has been an invaluable resource for me, whenever I need help in a crunch. He is passionate about his work, highly committed to the best interests of his clients, and also entirely reliable (he even worked past midnight for me once, to help me meet a deadline). He is an excellent writer and teacher. You can't go wrong with him, for any kind of editorial services.

About

You are working hard to build a quality company brand. But do your written documents really reflect the quality and professionalism you want to project? Poorly written customer-facing materials detract from the brand. Poor grammar, inconsistent hyphenation, punctuation and awkward sentence structure detract from your message. Uniformity of terms, consistency, clarity and readability are essential to building customer confidence. This is important for local and global companies alike, and especially for those whose management are not native English speakers. Have your PowerPoint presentations, news releases, data sheets, white papers, Web site texts and other collateral materials stand out and looking consistent with other of your company documents. A former editor and seasoned PR and communications consultant with more than 20 years of experience in the high-tech industry can help support your publicity goals. Writer is experienced in general and technical topics including EDA, consumer electronics, software, computers, peripherals, telecommunications, wireless, net security, semiconductors, medical equipment and test and measurement. Turnaround times are hours rather than days. Low monthly retainer, project or hourly rates are available. Find out more at our website.

About

My motto: "Dry" topics don't have to be dull. My areas of expertise and interest: personal finance, small-biz management, urban planning and environmental issues. They're far from boring to cover -- I've tagged along with a Secret Service agent hunting identity theft gangs online, and got my "investing fortune" read by a palm reader/technology consultant. * I was a staff writer for Self, Money and Red Herring magazines. Now as a San Francisco-based freelancer, I write for print and Web publications including Bankrate, AdvisorMax, Edutopia, Harvard Management Update and MSNBC.com. * On the Internet side, I was editor of Quicken.com, covering finance and small-business topics for 2.5 million users. * All the knowledge I've gained has led me to regular corporate writing assignments. Recent clients include Intuit, Cisco Systems, and the University of California. I have worked as an editor for a custom publishing company, working with clients like Comcast and the Credit Union League of California to create magazines and newsletters for their customers. I also write marketing collateral and business strategies for nonprofit organizations. * I also write and edit for nonprofits, most recently The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Ashoka and the University of California.
