Lisa-Beth proof-read a script for me. She is an amazing proofreader who went beyond the call of duty and got my script back to me a week earlier than expected. Thanks Lisa-Beth! You are awesome!
I asked Ellie to proofread my Ph.D. dissertation at the final stage prior to publication. It was 462 pages in length and she did the proof reading on very short notice over a weekend. I appreciated her promptness, attention to detail, and professionalism. She went above and beyond when I asked her to review some additional issues with the formatting of my references in the footnotes.
Temi is a consummate professional. She is an excellent editor and her attention to detail is incredible. I learned a lot from her edits. She has great respect for the author's work and it's clear that her goal is to make the work better. I couldn't have asked for a better editor. I look forward to working with her on my future projects.
Chris O’Toole took on the Sisyphean task of: 1) proofreading; 2) providing a general critique: and 3) giving insight on whether and how to move forward on my draft play and associated essay. Mr. O’Toole use the yellow highlighter feature in Word to show his proofreading suggestions. I am still finding grammatical and word choice errors. This may well be because—due to my limited eye-sight— I didn’t see all his yellow highlights in making my corrections. He provided a general, dip-lomatic, thoughtful critique of the play’s subject matter; use of metaphors, poetry, and language; and connection with a reader or an audience. In making and evaluating my decision to hire an editor in general and Mr. O’Toole specifically, I looked at five factors: 1) experience and expertise; 2) cost; 3) turn-around time; 4) interactions; and 5) quality of work. Regarding the first, while I do not know Mr. Toole’s experience with plays, his website clearly indicates significant experience in editing other forms of professional writing. I believe the quality of editors’ websites and offers of services is a good indicator of their knowledge of and skill in teaching clients like me how to connect with their readers and audiences. Regarding cost, other editors I consulted charged on an hourly or a per page basis while Mr. Toole, in this first editing interaction, offered a very reasonable flat fee. There are pluses and minuses with each ap-proach. A flat fee was best for me for the initial editing of a draft play. The third factor is crucial for most authors working on deadlines. Mr. O’Toole sent me his edits and critique within two weeks. A second editor I contacted told me she could not get to my draft until January. Fourth, ed-iting is a collaborative enterprise: an editor needs to know the writer’s audience, intent, focus, and voice to help that author create his or her best work. Mr. O’Toole gave me feedback and questions on the writing sample I originally sent him. He sent me a follow-up email—with a targeted ques-tion--while editing my manuscript. Overall, I am happy with the initial editing efforts Mr. O’Toole gave me: professional; cost-effective; timely; and interactive. I am still rolling around the four page, shiny, rock critique he also gave me: gold or dross; foundational, aspirational, or weighing down: moving the draft higher or back into an inky sea? Whatever it ultimately is, he initiated a thought provoking internal and external conversation for/with a novice playwright just as my response here illustrates the meta-phorical challenges Mr. O’Toole confronted in critiquing and advising me on my writing.
Heather has been fantastic and insightful - I'm so very happy I've hired Heather.
Linda was punctual and made learning fun for our daughter. My daughter told me she loves her new teacher! We look forward to many tutoring sessions from her.
Liz has been SO helpful with my work documents, business correspondence and even a few personal letters. She always gets the job done quickly and never misses a thing. She even helps me when I'm not quite sure how I want to word something! I highly recommend her for anything you might want proofread. Side Note: REALLY appreciate her fast response and delivery of work in the "off hours". With my line of work I never know when deadlines will hit and she is always there with the fast turnaround.
Shaula is a professional and highly competent editor. I send everything I write to her, be it chapters of my novel, posts to my blog and even sometimes verbose emails. Her attention to detail is astounding and she not only proofreads exceptionally well, she also focuses on content and readability. She poses questions and comments on the things that work and the things that don't. Having a vast knowledge of literature and books, this makes her an excellent source to also bounce ideas of of, if one is worried about flow or plot problems. She can think it through and give her feedback. Shaula is more than just a proofreader, she's an editor. And she's the best one I've ever used!

After working as an editor for a transcription company for a couple of years, I've built up my skills in proofreading and editing while working with audio. Now, I'm looking to expand and work with other types of content, both tied to audio and not. To that end, I'm currently getting used to working with the Chicago Manual of Style.
Over 15 years of experience in translation, essay writing and proofreading vouch for my life-long passion for this field and have earned me extensive knowledge and outstanding skills. Even so, professional translations take more than knowledge and skills; its a process of cultivating techniques and refining abilities to find culturally linguistic equivalence in the target language. My translations begin with the understanding that any material needs to be localized in order to successfully convey a message; current language use is taken into account, while keeping syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic integrity in the target language. My proofreading strategies are based on systematic layered-proofing techniques. My fields of interest have been general market, media and advertising, but my experience is extensive and all-inclusive.
