Testimonials

Pedro’s proofreading and copyediting skills are exemplary, and his attention to detail is outstanding. Pedro’s input always brings out the best in every piece of writing, improving consistency, accuracy and clarity. During our time working together Pedro copyedited and proofread our quarterly magazine, The Vegan, along with numerous reports, blogs, articles, recipes, infographics and more. Pedro also created a thorough and professional style guide which still proves invaluable to our work.

Elena Orde, Editor of ‘The Vegan’

I have used Pedro’s services multiple times for academic texts, research proposals and job applications. Having English as a second language has always been a problem for me when I needed polished texts, and his work has allowed me to give a professional first impression to international committees. He always does an impressive job polishing my texts beyond just grammar (checking names of institutions and programmes, restructuring and improving flow) while keeping my tone and respecting my content. I will continue to use his services in my research career to improve my written material.

Juan Carlos Torrado Vidal, Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Bergen

Pedro was an exceptional student on the Publishing Training Centre’s course, Essential Copy-Editing, gaining the highest level of Pass with Distinction. He has phenomenal knowledge of linguistics and eagle-eyed attention to detail – the hallmarks of an outstanding copy-editor. He is diligent in every undertaking, producing editorial work of an exceptionally high calibre. He is also an incredibly nice person, with gentle and considerate interpersonal skills that are well suited to working with authors and clients.
