What my clients have said

“She is highly responsive and clear about expectations and availability. She can grasp technical detail quickly and has a knack for picking up inconsistencies across multiple, large documents. She is also highly efficient and makes the effort to understand your own deadlines. A freelancer who becomes a core part of the team with no fuss. I enjoyed working with Rebecca and will actively seek to work with her again.”
Peter Robinson, Independent, working with Go-Ahead

“We hired Rebecca to help us finalise a bid proposal. Not only did she edit and correct it but she helped us restructure the document so its content was far stronger and clearer than we were able to achieve ourselves. Rebecca also helped us understand the core messages we wanted to convey and led us through a process to add missing content, making the document more effective.
Harrison Brown, Suru Partners

“Here are our collective thoughts on what we both think is a fantastic edit of our original draft – please do pass on our thanks and congratulations to the editor. Her efforts have made the report much clearer.”
Ian Bottrill, ContinYou Cymru, author for Joseph Rowntree Foundation

“I was recommended to use Rebecca’s services by a colleague. She was simply the best copy editor I have ever come across. She took time to listen to the detail of what I wanted to achieve through the use of words and then refocused and sharpened the message with truly inspiring efficiency and precision. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rebecca’s copy editing and writing for the web. She is a true professional and good value.”
Graham Mitchell, The 4th Agenda

“I selected Rebecca to work on a bid editing project for one of 3di’s most important customers in the telecoms equipment sector. The scope changed at the last minute and Rebecca was incredibly patient and flexible, and helped ensure the customer could submit a highly professional bid.”
Paul Ballard, Managing Director, 3di Information Solutions Ltd

“I would highly recommend Rebecca to edit or proofread any document or publication. She is professional, reliable and her work is of a very high quality.”
Bridget Moylan, Federation of Small Businesses

“I have now been through the whole monograph and I’d like to thank you so much for the diligent work you have done.  Your suggestions and alterations were sensitive and sympathetic to the text and therefore very helpful. Thank you again and I will certainly recommend you to anyone who wants their work copy-edited.”
Dr Jenny Byrne, Lecturer in Education, University of Southampton

“Editing and proofreading a tender document worth in excess of £20 million for a multinational UK firm, Rebecca delivered a professional and thorough job on time and with excellent value for money. She was part of a team that delivered a winning bid and I would be happy to work with her again, or recommend her to others.”
Joe Meaney, Account Director, Proof Communication

“Rebecca is a meticulous editor and upheld the highest standards during her two years at The Key. She designed processes, editorial and style guides and supervised the training of researchers. She is a hard worker and someone of great integrity. She is good fun and a real pleasure to work with. The Key is a leading service for school leaders and it is no exaggeration to say that Rebecca set the standard that enabled us to gain an outstanding reputation in the education sector. Her eye for the right tone is always spot on – and I would regularly ask her to check difficult communications that I was working on. I cannot recommend her more highly.”
Fergal Roche, Managing Director, The Key

“I have no hesitation in recommending Rebecca to any organisation. She has unwaveringly high standards, and a fantastic level of personal enthusiasm that is infectious. Her love of language and the written word is obvious in all the editing work she has done for me. She combines this with great tact and diplomacy whether working with writers or leading and managing editorial teams.”
Frank Kitson, Training and Development Agency for Schools

“We were really pleased with your copy edit of the report. It was a very thorough edit which did a lot to improve the clarity and flow of such a long document. The author was also pleased with it; he agreed with the vast majority of changes and even asked me to pass on his thanks to you for doing such a good job – rare praise indeed!”
Ed Robinson, Cambridge Publishing Management
