I had Lisa translate an important document for me. She was extremely professional and quick at her work. She was also very accommodating at delivering it to me. Don't hesitate in hiring her for any of your translation needs. Thank you Lisa.

Vincent did a wonderful job proofreading and editing my resumes and cover letters on multiple occasions. I found his insights and feedback to be thorough, well thought out, and easy to apply. It was clear that he took the time to understand the positions I was after, before drafting his own thoughts on how I could best frame my narratives. All in all, I highly recommend his services, as he’s both very capable and thoughtful in his services.

The jobs involved collaboration on final editing of documents about complex major capital projects. They included tables and technical analysis as well as descriptive overviews and narrative text. Duane Kelly of Salmon Bay exceeds expectations. He is absolutely thorough and brings clarity to technical subjects.

I had contacted Lori because we were in need of editing services for our trade publication, Catalyst. I have been working with her on a few issues now, and I have been nothing short of impressed with the speed and quality of her work. She is incredibly friendly, has great attention to detail, and communicates well on the status of projects. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in need of a great editing service.

I use Track Changes for Word documents, which enables you to see my edits and either reject or accept them.

About

What stands out the most about my service is that I am 100% passionate about every project I work on. I edit because I love my work -- I have a day job, but I choose to edit in my spare time because it is a natural talent of mine. I have always had a natural knack for language. A month after I graduated with my B.A., I founded this editing firm so I could continue to work in the environment I loved -- books and documents. I have had over 100 clients and none have been dissatisfied. Please inquire for a link where you can read my 47 five-star reviews. Another thing that stands out about my service is that I have worked on such a wide range of projects: from resumes to scholarly journal articles to romance novels. I am pleasant and reliable to work with, and I would so appreciate the opportunity to work with you.
