Kate provided editing and proofreading work for my academic paper "Politicized discourses: A reflexive approach to the transnational campaign on Women, Peace and Security and its local narratives." The paper contained highly specialized language and content and the journal editor gave me a very tight deadline. Kate provided a very detailed and nuanced editing work to make sure that I was conveying the right message. All this under a very short timescale! I would highly recommend her for any social sciences academic work you need edition and proofreading on. I have worked with several editors and translators before, and I can say without any reservation that she is the best I have encountered.

I must say it was outstanding, clean, accurate and it was done within a short timeline. I got a 67 mark on my dissertation which allowed me to obtain a merit on my MSc in Marketing. I would definitely recommend her for this type of job, she would provide with a very professional and excellent work.
