To whom it may concern:
It is a privilege to write a personal Letter of Recommendation on behalf of my trusted colleague, Jo-D Demore, proofreader and editor. Jo-Ds unrivaled skills and ability in this area stem from her uncommon aptitude to condense advanced abstract concepts into clear, concise non-technical language. Her capacity to affect such perfect proofreading/editing changes comes from her dedication to detail while focusing on the core concepts or objectives of the document. She dedicates immense time and effort to understanding the authors concepts and objectives. This step sets her apart from others that are simply proofreading for grammar because she encompasses a larger overview to ensure materials are not just punctuated correctly, but actually flow and are understandable to potential readers without compromising the intent of the authors principle concept or argument.
One of Jo-Ds specialties, and the one most pertaining to our work, is large written projects that require several revisions as the document develops to its full scope and scale. I have personally used her services over a period of several years for multiple documents consisting of hundreds of pages. As concept, and thus document content, is revised, Jo-D plays as large or small a role as required. She can micro correct for strictly proofreading requirements, and she can also macro evaluate for the larger picture about document content, structure and flow. The normal dynamic between an author and editor is one of contention but not so when working with Jo-D. Her work is exemplary, thorough and timely, and she is a real pleasure to work with. For anyone in need of proofreading or editing, she is a godsend!
