TESTIMONIALS

Don’t just take it from me! Here’s what my clients have to say:


Hannah has a sharp grasp of policy, political and practice issues and is able to communicate her analyses effectively and with impact. Her work provides the basis for action and progress – what more can colleagues ask for?’

– Shan Ashton, Head of School for Lifelong Learning, Bangor University and Wales Violence Against Women Action Group


‘Excellent work. Really pleased with it. You’ve clearly put in a significant amount of heavy work; at short notice and over the weekend too. Your comments were really useful in tidying up those parts of the text where we’d let some woolly language slip in.’

– Ed Hammond, Director, Centre for Public Scrutiny


‘Thank you so much for a superb job and for providing clear options and guidance. I will certainly be happy to recommend you to colleagues!’

– Catherine Blampied, Policy Advocacy Officer, RESULTS UK


‘Hannah proofread my PhD thesis in Political Science and I am highly satisfied with her professional working style and the quality of the final outcome. My colleague recommended Hannah to me and now, after my cooperation with Hannah, I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anybody who is looking for a highly efficient and professional proofreader or editor. Vielen Dank und immer wieder!’

– Anna Shpakovskaya, PhD Fellow, Duisburg-Essen University


‘Thank you very much for your wonderful, detailed notes and the obvious time and care you have taken with this edit. I so appreciate your work and I hope the author will too.’

– Jess Mitchell, Production Editor, Policy Press


‘We really appreciate the thorough copy-editing job you’ve done on this report. I’ve just finished going through your comments and your suggestions have been really helpful.’

– Alice Delemare, Campaigns Adviser, Changing Markets Foundation


‘I can strongly recommend working with Hannah: she is very professional in her correspondence and always sticks to previously made agreements, including deadlines. She had a compelling way in letting me know how to turn sentences around so that they definitely sound better in English.’

– Stephanie Bräuer, Research Associate, University of Münster


‘Hannah did a great job on a very fast timeline and was extremely professional throughout. She corrected for grammar, readability, style and more; applied British style and usage throughout; and sent us back a clean, highly polished draft.

‘We’ve been working with Hannah for a while now, and we always turn to her first when we have a report that needs proofing for a UK client.’

– Allison Stevens, Senior Writer and Editor, The FrameWorks Institute


‘Hannah Austin worked with us on our academic monograph and proved an exemplary copy editor. As well as an excellent scholarly understanding, Hannah brings good humour and a scrupulous eye for detail.  We recommend her highly.’

– Dr Michael Higgins (University of Strathclyde) and Dr Angela Smith (University of Sunderland)


‘Having contacted 5 proof readers from the same site, Hannah was one of the first to respond and very professional from the start. Absolutely loved her work and she is incredibly efficient and I received all my work on time. Will definitely be recommending Hannah to my friends.’

– Karlene Wong, MA Social Work, University of Greenwich


Hannah’s editorial input at the University of Wales Press during gestation of the Encyclopaedia of Wales was enthusiastic, intelligent and always of the highest standard – UWP is fortunate in being able to continue to rely on Hannah’s editorial and proof-reading skills, and hopes to maintain its relation into the future.’

– Dafydd Jones, Editor, University of Wales Press


‘Hannah is reliable and an excellent communicator. She delivers work on time and to a very high standard. You couldn’t find a better copyeditor or proofreader anywhere!’

– Deborah Withers, Founder, Hammer On Press


‘I needed someone to proofread my 80,000-word PhD dissertation, and a friend of mine recommended Hannah. I passed my viva with no corrections, which I think speaks volumes for the quality of Hannah’s work! She was always friendly, professional and quick to answer my emails. I will definitely recommend Hannah to other PhD students.’

– [Dr!] K.D., PhD Sociology and Social Policy, University of Leeds


‘I accepted an article proposal from Hannah on the Violence Against Women (Wales) Bill for Planet magazine. I can strongly recommend working with Hannah: she is very professional in her correspondence and her piece was compellingly written with impeccable grammar. She responded swiftly to my request to add additional context to a conceptual point about neoliberalism, and did so in a way which demonstrated her ability as a writer to convey complex ideas in a perceptive, concise and accessible way. The article was an opinion piece which was both well-researched and passionately written.’

– Emily Trahair, Editor, Planet: The Welsh Internationalist
