What our clients say about our work

We value our hard-earned reputation for client service and for on-time, on-budget, high-quality work.

Authors can find the prospect of handing over their creation to a quality-control person somewhat daunting, so we pay special attention to respecting authors and working with them to make their work the best it can be.

Here are some quotes from end-of-project emails . Almost all our clients are public servants who prefer not to be named, but we will happily provide references to potential clients once mutual interest is established.

And a big thank you to you for teaching me how to write better and how to summarise technical information. I will definitely send you more work when the opportunity comes up again.'
