Client feedback

Below are recommendations from a couple of our past clients.

Recommendation by a Russian Historian

To Whom It May Concern:

[Edits International] helped me finalize the text for a collection of papers on Soviet foreign policy. The original text was written in English and included translations from Slavic languages as well.

The work was done in a very short time. The editor helped me clarify important points and greatly improved the style of the text while still maintaining my particular perspective. Following the publication of the collection, I received compliments from American colleagues about the precision and clarity of the language.

[My editor] was extremely patient in discussing changes to the text. With very rare professional skills and human qualities, she was one of the best editors I have ever met.

To Whom It May Concern:

[[Edits International] edited my Ph.D. thesis efficiently and rapidly. After reading my thesis, [my editor] reviewed all of the modifications and suggestions with me, and we discussed how to best convey the main points of my research.

[My editor] made useful comments on how to improve some sections that were confusing, sometimes suggesting alternatives to make my ideas clearer.

[Edits International] helped me clearly and precisely communicate the main points of my thesis without detracting from the integrity and authenticity of my text.
