    Excelleent work - I would highly recommend to anyone who has a book written that needs editing - especially if written by someone where English is their second language. David not only edited the language but quickly gained an understanding of the topic and changed the tone and context as well.

    Project Description:I have had a book written by an Indian writer - who is very good but of course there are certain cultural differences that make the writing slightly different to what would be expected by an American audience...

    I need a great editor to go through a chapter of my dissertation and edit and proofread it. I am looking for a native English speaker with, preferably, academic background in economics. The paper is about 8,000 words and the deadline is relatively short (about a week). It is about efficiency and productivity. This paper is about stochastic frontier analysis, Pakes-McGuire Algorithm, as well as Virgiliu and Xu’s recent Model. I have used some proofreading tool by myself online. I also paid an online proofreading companies to check the paper. But my professor is still not very satisfied with the result. I need an editor to clean up edits/grammatical, and more IMPORTANT, any other logical errors I may have left in the document.
