“We have used Stephen York Editorial Services for proofreading since 2010 and have always found that he offers a prompt and accurate service. He is adaptable, and over the years has had no trouble in adjusting his method to various workflow changes. He is also excellent at communication, always keeping me updated on the rare occasion that he cannot fulfil a requested turnaround time. I highly recommend his proofreading service.”
