Tania completed a proof read within good time and in good detail. Her edits were thorough, demonstrating both her experience and her in-depth knowledge of proof reading. In particular, I was impressed by her dedication to keeping the manuscript consistent, with meticulous page references of any differences between spellings throughout the manuscript. I would feel confident working with her again.
