Testimonials

I'd been aware of Louise for a while before I had the chance to hire her as editor on a book I was writing. She proved she had a superb eye for detail and maximum flexibility for accommodating my fluctuating schedule and the book was upgraded instantly as a result. I therefore had no hesitation in asking her to sub-edit and proofread Professional Outsourcing Magazine when I became managing editor the following year; she has proven herself efficient, friendly, proactive when it comes to making processes easier and she offers excellent value. I would recommend her wholeheartedly.

Guy Clapperton FPSA, Speaker, writer, media trainer

Louise has done proofreading and editing for us since 2012, and she has always been fast and done a good job, been willing to help and friendly. I can recommend her and her services to others.

Maria Danielsson, project manager at Exacta Translations (Sweden)

Louise was recommended and came top from among five other financial research specialist editors. Her company PlainText has provided an excellent service: always on time, discreet and often to very tight deadlines. She has been a pleasure to work with over the past 8 months and hope this relationship continues. Am delighted to recommend her for editing work.
