Working with Bev is always a pleasure. Her work is on time and to the point. And she even finds a solution to squeeze
some last-minute requests in.
As non-native speakers, we especially appreciate her fantastic grip on language. Not only can she decipher our German-based most awkward word-constructs and give them meaning, but more than that she always gets the core intent of what we actually wanted to say and puts it in shapely and vivid English that is fun to read.
Sabine Appeltauer, Federkiel and Partner, Germany
"Beverly did the sub-editing for our e-books, "50 Years: The Rolling Stones" and "Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner - In their own words".
Proofreading and editing is maybe the most important step when publishing a book or e-book. No matter how well written the content, if there are mistakes, this can undermine all the efforts done before. We were looking for a professional proofreader and sub-editor, who could deliver on time, be quick at replying, deliver short notice jobs and whom we rely upon with fact-checking. We are very glad at having found all of those qualities in Beverly."
Michael Karg, The Interview People / The E-book People
"As the co-author of 50 Years: The Rolling Stones - Views from the Inside, Views from the Outside, I was extremely glad to know that I could rely on Beverly to whip my book into proper linguistic shape. Not only is she extremely conscientious and precise in her proof-reading, she was also happy to follow my invitation and suggest improvements in the text - she is full of good ideas and communicates these extremely well. In short - working with Beverly is a joy. She never misses a deadline, never seems flustered, and retains her excellent sense of humour even under the most trying circumstances. I'm looking forward to working with Beverly again."
Hanspeter Kuenzler, author.
“TMP uses Bev as one of their regular stay-at-home writers to manage the overflow of high volume, quick turnaround, copy only jobs. She has a great attitude, is always happy to take work on at the last minute and has extremely reasonable rates - which is always a good thing with demanding clients and limited budgets! Top qualities - personable, good value and on time."
Emma Hawker, Head of Creation Traffic, TMP Worldwide
"Hollywood Creations have worked with Bev for many years now and she's been a key contributor to our products. Her work is always of exceptionally high quality and can be found in many of our games including EMI Lyric music quiz for pub terminal and mobile. Bev is a pleasure to work with!"
Mark Evans, CTO, Hollywood Creations Inc.
Beverly provided Hollywood Gaming with a series top quality and well researched questions, many of which were music based. She is extremely easy to work with and very professional, especially when faced with a detailed brief. She is reliable and treats her work with a high degree of confidentiality. I would have no hestitation in hiring Bev again.
"Big Jigs have worked with Bev for several years now, initially hiring her to create product descriptions for our new website, and then for ongoing additions to the range. We needed someone who could meet our deadlines and produce a high standard of work, whilst still charging an affordable rate - and Bev provided all of those things. We would be pleased to recommend her to anyone!"
