I couldn't have got my book published without Samantha's help. She not only proofread the English manuscript of my book, but also ensured that my translation from Spanish was accurate.

Samantha的修改相當的精細,會幫忙注意到許多重要的細節。另外他也會幫忙注意句子長短、結構、連結詞的適合度等等。收到他的修改後認真閱讀,也等於多學了許多寫作的方式。另外他的收費也很合理。所以我很推薦這位編輯。

Samantha paid attention to details and also sentences structures which are what I need the most. She is also fast and on-time. Most importantly I think her charge is very very reasonable.
