Testimonials

Read what clients have to say about my translation and editing services.

Meticulous Work

We had asked Steven to edit an article written in English by a researcher whose first language was not English. Steven proposed numerous changes, all of which were necessary, justified, astute and perfectly in tune with the author’s intentions. He even flagged a few issues with the footnotes. Meticulous and highly professional work. I enthusiastically recommend him! — Cédric Jourde, Associate Professor of Political Studies, University of Ottawa

Responsive

Go-To for Plain Language

When developing online resources for teens, Steven was my go-to for plain-language editing. We sometimes received submissions from brilliant people whose writing style was just a bit too complex for our average reader. I could count on Steven to transform the text into something accessible, teen-friendly and fun—always with tremendous respect for the author's voice and expertise. — Tina Bankovic, a former colleague at Let's Talk Science

Amazing Job

I am not sure how you did this... the text feels so much more coherent now. Some of your changes shocked me at first and the more I thought about them, the more I liked them! You did an amazing job. I am still quite speechless. — Mariann Wenckheim, leadership coach and graduate of INSEAD's Executive Master in Change program
