We will all be sorry to lose you from [journal title]; your sensitive copy editing has been much appreciated and I have learned a lot from you.

Alison, I just finished reading through the thesis in detail. I absolutely love what you have done with it! You really (in some mysterious way) managed to do exactly what I had in mind, without being able to articulate it precisely to you. Thank you so so much for doing 3 years’ worth of work justice in such a beautiful way. I really appreciate all the time you spent trying to understand the research in order to give precise and helpful suggestions. I definitely feel more confident submitting this now.

As usual, your work takes our writing to another league.

Your editing is what I was seeking. I consider your work as more than ‘just’ editing: it also helps me to become aware of ambiguities or unclear statements. Therefore, it’s three-fold: proper English, improving my English language skills, and better thesis.

You’re the best copyeditor I know!

Our client list is long and high profile. We are particular about our products and will only use high-calibre contractors. I never hesitate to call on Alison. She has earned the respect not only of our entire editorial division but also our writing staff (all of whom hold doctorates in medicine or pharmacy). She looks beyond the obvious, thinks about the subject matter, carefully researches journal instructions, prepares style sheets for the authors, applies careful attention to detail, and communicates flawlessly and with humour and honesty. She manages multiple projects, such that we can send several projects to juggle but she never misses a deadline. She is outstanding.

I’m very happy having found you, and you got compliments from my peer group! All of them agreed that my text reads much more fluently than before, and I’m learning at the same time.

Thank you so much. This was superb, and I know it was a tough job!

You definitely deserve a prize! Wow, you did a really nice job playing with the words without changing the meaning of anything. Thank you so very much!

What a talent! You’re superb at helping authors articulate complex ideas simply. This is a huge asset not just for non-English students, but also for English speakers wanting to express complex ideas to a wider audience.
