"Testimonials" — well, not exactly — just correspondence from our clients
We did not ask for glowing statements; we got permission from two of our clients to publish excerpts of emails they wrote to us.
1. Client M, experienced author
M had requested a quick proof-read. However, after we reviewed the document we had to recommend a more thorough edit. The client was initially dubious, so we offered a sample edit of the Summary section of the document.
From Client M: I have had many years of experience working with professional editors such as yourself (I have published 11 books with Elsevier, Blackwell, and others), so have a good feel of where editing can both add strength to and also inadvertently change the meaning of the narrative . . .
From Words Editing Services: Attached is a first-pass sample edit of the Summary section.
From Client M: You have done a beautiful job. Thank you. I had more or less come to the same conclusions myself. I agree with all your comments . . . I have incorporated your amendments with some of my own in the attached new draft . . . On the basis of the sample you have sent me, I am now more than comfortable for you to work with the text and improve its readability (this has been a very useful learning exercise for me).
2. Client K, professor and researcher
From Client K: I was really, really happy with the previous editing job you did for me. I often have multiple authors writing into articles, and I encourage my students to publish, so the editing can be challenging. However, the service you offer is a very positive support. We ended up having a much better paper post your feedback. You completed the editing at a much deeper level than I expected . . . I did pass positive feedback onto our managers and have encouraged others to use the service. I have been spreading the word!
