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?’

‘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.’

‘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.’

‘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.’

‘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!’

‘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.’

‘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.’

‘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.’

‘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.’

‘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!’

Working with Hannah was a wonderful experience. I came to her with a good full draft of the latest volume in my Short Guides series. Based on the published versions of the previous two volumes, she provided an estimate of time required and fee. She was clear about her availability and I booked a date to get her the good draft. I was mainly looking for copy editing but said I was open to substantive suggestions. In addition to doing an excellent job of the copy editing, she flagged two substantive issues. I took the time to consider these carefully and decided to go with her suggestions for both. One was a major restructuring, moving a section from one chapter to a different one with attendant changes to other parts of the book. I decided to get Hannah to do the first pass of this for me, and she gave me an additional quote for this job. I then asked her to copy edit my further revision of that section and the work I’d done based on her other suggestion. This worked out very well. Although I spent more than initially planned, I never felt pressured to do so. This book is better for the work Hannah did. 

‘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.’

‘The Rumpus emailed this morning and yes, they’re publishing my piece in ENOUGH. I’m beyond thrilled and can’t quite believe it. I’ve entered a couple contests over the years but apart from that, haven’t submitted my work–until this. So thank you, both for your feedback, which made it so much better, and for your encouragement.’

‘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.’

‘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!’

‘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.’
