Laura is awesome! I had a book translated from Russian to English, and I wanted my English to be checked for correctness. Laura not only checked my grammar, spelling and punctuation but also gave lots of comments and advice on English nuances and story flow. I've learnt a lot. I would love to work with Laura again, and I strongly recommend her.

Laura was a pleasure to work with. She was professional and punctual with her work but also kind and thoughtful with her comments. This was my first time hiring an editor and she made the experience delightful. I hope I have a chance to work with her again in the future.
