Your thoroughness was concise, deliberate, and articulate. I could not have done this without you. Or, I'd be donning my hood as an elder sometime in the 2050's…Endless gratitude!
My dissertation chair told me that he would be directing his future dissertation students to my [paper] as a model. I believe it was in large part due to the direction and clarity you offered me every step of the way. You made what was a very overwhelming endeavor for me feel far more contained and doable
Thanks so much for all your help—both technical and emotional. I really appreciated and enjoyed working with you, and your steady assurance was a welcome anchor through the sometimes chaotic waters of this process. You were one of a very small group of people who really felt like they were tracking my progress.
This was the highest possible professional caliber work, as good or better than I've seen in years from any established publishing house, and I was extremely impressed by the breadth and depth of [Laura's] reading and her keen eye for the smallest details. Her welcome scattered suggestions for improving certain small aspects of presentation and voice and technique were all well thought and appropriate, and her uncanny ability to spot the slightest inconsistencies in the most minute references in the text reveals her dedication to the job at hand.
In comparing experiences [with my classmates], I realize how fortunate I am that I went with Laura and Together Editing. The checklist you sent was so easy to work with (and far superior to the Word documents some of my friends got) and the itemized bill I received was straightforward and made it clear how much work went into the process. I imagine your process required more work on your end, and I thank you for doing more to make my job easier. I would definitely recommend you to anyone in need of technical editing.
Many thanks again for your constant support as I labored my way through the dissertation process over the past 3 years. I simply could not have finished the work without your guidance, and I am deeply and eternally grateful to you all for standing by my side throughout the journey.
I passed my defense! In the discussion with my teacher, he seems to be impressed your editing, because he knows how much difficult to translate specific culture things. It was definitely your help is essential. Again, thank you so much your help!!
I officially completed my Ph.D. program! …and no revisions were required. [My chair] said the work is "progressive" "forward" and he said "amazing" twice…So thank you, Anna. You helped me do this.
–Ann-Terese Barket, Ph.D.
Again and again, thank you so much for your support to complete my dissertation. Through completing thesis, I have learned that it is important to have integrity between what I say and do. Thank you so much for all your incredible work!
It has been a pure joy working with you! Given the grueling nature of the doctoral journey, I hardly anticipated "joy" being involved with my technical and copy edit process, but then, I hadn't met YOU!!! Your sweet demeanor, endless patience, and professionalism are like balm to a wounded, weary doctoral student crawling to the finish line. It will be my delight to work with you again sometime.
Thank you so much for all of your help, and your fantastic work. I would not have been able to finish so fast without you!
Anna is THE very best editor I know and she helped me so much in my dissertation writing. She (and her associates) are the only ones I trust with my academic work
Thank you for your wonderful editing, clear instructions, and great improvements of my dissertation.
You have been an amazing gift in my life! I so appreciate your assistance, your humor, your dedication, and your BRILLIANCE!!
My defense went better than I could have ever imagined. NO rewrites, adds, deletes, or anything— at all. My committee wants me to publish in several forms asap. so, thank you thank you thank you! It was a pleasure to work with you.
Doctor [ :-) ] Catherine McGovern
Your skills have made this document one that is worthy of academic credibility. Thank you for your time, humor and detail oriented skill set.
You were so helpful and so gracious when I had nearly impossible deadlines. I appreciate sincerely all that you did!
Laura was amazing. She clearly is so gifted at editing but beyond that she was so responsive and supportive throughout the whole process. I really feel like I had a team supporting me.
Thanks so much for your love and excellent care of my baby. You have helped me create a product that I am proud of. Love and light,
I find the most helpful part is that your team really understands the process, and where we (exhausted doctoral students near the finishing line) are, both mentally and emotionally. You are both kind and efficient.
