"I appreciated the respectful way in which they dealt with my work and the soft but firm touch they used in their edit remarks. Not in one instance did they suggest a change that I did not agree with. The way in which they did the edit definitely enhanced my work, without changing my voice."

"Victoria at The Word Tank did an outstanding job on proofreading my MS. She went above and beyond, taking the liberty to carry out some minimal line edits, and gave great suggestions on consistency. She caught many little errors in changes I'd made after my editor had her hands on it, so I'm very grateful for her eagle eye spotting. I'd recommend her fully for her proofreading skills. "
