Myriam Birch is valued member of the FQS editorial team, with a keen insight into what authors (especially non-native speakers) intend to express. Her academic knowledge and background is highly relevant, allowing her to edit for content and logic as well as language. She has a feel for the subtleties of the English language and produces high-quality copy. Would not hesitate to recommend her.
