Testimonials:

“Tereza managed to keep my voice and stayed within the tone of my work, something other editors have struggled with in the past. She is by far the best editor I have ever worked with. On top of being extremely professional, Tereza is easy to talk to and so fun to work with. She has become my go-to editor and we are currently working on our second project together.”

 “I can always count on Tereza to complete copy editing projects with tight deadlines. The time constraints do not prevent her from effectively doing her job, nor do they compromise her level of commitment and accuracy. I’ve been working with Tereza for over three years, and I have no intention of finding another copyeditor; she’s by far the best, and incredibly easy to work with.”
