My goal is to take your text and not only correct any errors in grammar and usage, but rework it where necessary, while acting as a first reader to sort out any possible confusion.

    • Dissertations
    • Research papers, etc.
  • Manuscript Editing & Critiquing

What People are Saying:

"Jessica is one of the most meticulous and prompt copy editors that I have ever worked with. She is fast, fun, and reliable. I enjoyed working with her as she gave genuine feedback in a very timely fashion and I would strongly recommend her to anyone."
- Kevin Hanegan, Software Course Developer and Trainer, Somerville, MA.

"Jessicas arbete håller en genomgående hög kvalitet, i jämförelse med andra leverantörer står hennes arbete verkligen ut. Vi har även fått bekräftat av våra kunder att vi gjort rätt i att använda hennes tjänster. De har påpekat att vårt översatta marknadsmaterial håller en väldigt hög kvalitet och inte på något sätt kan liknas med den svengelska man ibland kan utläsa ur översatta texter."

"Jessica's work maintains a high level of quality throughout; her work truly stands out. We have even received confirmation from customers that we did the right thing in using her services. They have pointed out that the quality of our translated marketing materials is high and do not in any way resemble the Swenglish that one can sometimes encounter in translated texts."

- Emma Forsberg, Marknadsansvarig,
Visionutveckling AB. visionutveckling.se

"I felt that you gave me more than the standard feedback compared to the previous editor on my first novel by commenting on issues in the storyline that didn't quite read well or to raise questions on its flow. The result was a stronger, more polished novel than I had expected."
- Mark Radford, Novelist, Portsmouth, UK.
