Testimonial

It was an absolute pleasure working with Karen Crosby at Documedic. She was very accommodating to my needs, which I really appreciated. She was also extremely knowledgeable, kind, and encouraging during the whole process, and was very quick to respond to all of my questions both by phone and by email. She truly is an expert editor, and I have already highly recommended her to several of my classmates. (March 2011; Adler School of Professional Psychology)

Testimonial

I had never used an editor before, so using one for my master's thesis was a big deal for me. I wasn't sure how the process would be, but from the moment I signed on with Documedic everything was so clearly explained that I knew just what to expect. Erin was thorough and succinct—qualities that are so desperately needed in a graduate level paper. Her turn-around time was really helpful, too, because I had a deadline that was looming. She seemed to really understand all the pressures that I was under—I appreciated her warmness. There is no way that I could have turned in a product that was of the quality that it was if I hadn't used Documedic's editing services. (March 2011; Royal Roads University)
