"Robert is by far the best editor that I have had. Being an academic, I often shrug off grammar for long, flowing sentences, which is not always the best thing. Robert’s attention to detail and grammar is astonishing. He even worked through my translations and helped me transform them into something that would stand out. I couldn’t recommend Robert more."
Dwight, Professor of Philosphy
"I have been working with Robert for several manuscripts. Robert is good at finding subtle grammatic errors and improving the readability and fluency of sentences without changing the original meaning. I benefit a lot from Robert's professional and meticulous proofreading. Also, Robert is helpful and patient with any of my questions."
