What my clients say
Excellent – you’re professional, but approachable. Your prices are very competitive and you meet your lead times, on time and without challenge – whilst also communicating proactively about issues.
I have more confidence that readers will take value from the report now that the English is improved.
Bob Balfour, Survivors West Yorkshire
Sally interviewed me about my work on ClimateCultures for a client’s blog and she made the process very relaxed and rewarding – from the initial approach, setting out the context for the questions she wanted to explore and starting the discussions, right through to the interview exchange and publication.
The interview was published simultaneously on the client’s site and on ClimateCultures, and Sally was happy to adjust her working hours to facilitate this.
Her attention to detail in the editing and presentation of the final piece was exemplary and never a burden. It’s a pleasure to work with someone who reaches out to understand your own work and wants to share that with others.
Mark Goldthorpe, ClimateCultures
Sally, thanks again for the time and effort you put into our report on the local energy agenda. It has been well-received by other local enterprise partnerships and the government department which commissioned it.
This is testament to the thoroughness with which you went through the document from front to back and the significant improvements you made. Quite apart from the errors you picked up, the polish you gave to the grammar means that the final document scans much better.
Your knowledge of the subject matter from an editor’s perspective was valuable in helping us to weed out industry jargon and make a complex subject accessible to the layperson.
James Johnson, Head of Regional Programme, Local Energy North West
Our Faculty of Medicine has been rated one of the best nationwide. It is far more difficult to become recognized internationally, although our University (founded 1348) is one of the oldest in Europe. Well-written and well-organized web pages are essential for attracting English-speaking course applicants from Europe and elsewhere.
After Sally’s makeover of some of the core elements of our English website, I feel much more confident for our Faculty and I am looking forward to seeing more students from abroad and to better international exchange in general.
O. Hrusak, Dean, 2nd Faculty of Medicine, Charles University, Prague
I hired Sally for a full edit on an 8,000-word short fantasy story which I was due to submit to a competition.
I asked Sally to throw the proverbial book at my work – pick all nits, highlight any issues she found at any level, from word choice through sentence structure up to paragraphs or sections that were unclear.
I was looking not just for someone who could point out grammatical technicalities I’d messed up, but also any place where my prose could be improved, for added impact or clarity.
Sally went through the story with a fine-tooth comb and found all sorts of little places where a better word or restructuring a sentence could make all the difference. She was also the first of several readers who saw the story prior to submission to point up a key revelatory paragraph near the end that needed a lot of work to clarify.
Sally was very easy to work with; her advice and comments were clear, and she was happy to answer the few questions I had about what she meant, and to offer further advice when it came to one or two points where there was a problem I couldn’t at first see how to fix.
Overall, I feel the edit really strengthened the story. Having had a professional look at it also enabled me to more effectively sort through the feedback I got from friends who beta-read it for me and helped my confidence when the time came to finally submit.

I would like to thank you for the brilliant job you have done with my personal statement.
I asked you for two versions because I was a little sceptical whether a formalized version would sound unauthentic and unnatural. But I was mistaken and you have done a brilliant job – it is perfect, thank you.

Trescom is a professional research company and our documents are subject to high levels of criticism and inspection. Sally dealt with numerous reports and marketing materials and ensured that they were readable and consistent and clearly demonstrated the required messages to our target audiences.
Sally also copy-edited and proofread a chapter I prepared for a book on Girton College, University of Cambridge, which was subsequently accepted and published. I do not believe this would have been possible without her help. I would highly recommend her services: she is dedicated and professional, and was very flexible to the needs of our business.
Saeeda Ahmed, Head of Diversity and Social Enterprise,
Trescom Research and Consultancy Ltd
You have great attention to detail and an unerring sense of what makes a sentence flow.
The newsletters you produced were not only accurate and free of errors, but readable and pitched at the right level for the audience.
Your open but assertive style made the process of final edit a joy.
