“Editing a scientific panel workshop report, mPeitsch did (as requested) a traditional by-hand editing markup of the report draft, using proofreader's marks. She was able to spot and provide suggested corrections for errors in puctuation, spelling, grammar and style. She was able to flag confusing paragraphs and sentences, but correcting these required topic expertise to fix, so her suggestions for fixes were qualified. She was also able to flag variations in terminology and overly complicated jargon.
My editing in her marks brought consistency and professionalism to the report. The report was fairly long, but she completed it ahead of schedule, in particular working intensely over a weekend to allow me, and providing intermediate batches of pages along the way for me to edit in, in parallel with her work. With her help I was able to exceed expectations of the program manager with the early delivery.
I would use her services again, if possible, I would probably schedule more time for a project allowing her to take even more care and to push into the report for even deeper editing. Because of the tight schedule she could only work at the top level markup. Also I would arrange it so that the final delivery would include giving her the chance to go back to earlier pages as part of the process of checking and enforcing consistency. ”
