Testimonials

What my clients are saying

My clients include design communications agencies, publishing companies, trade associations, and coaches and consultants.

I am proud to help my clients deliver their messages clearly and correctly. Here’s what they have to say about my work.

I recommend her to anyone

Editor testimonial from The Works Design Communications.

Carmen Siu has done extensive investor relations proofreading on a freelance basis for more than eight years, during which time she has never missed a deadline. She is often the first reader on a manuscript and as such must be thorough and consistent in her markup. Her queries for authors are clear and helpful. She has a strong command of English grammar and reliably cross-checks with previous reports and style guides. I recommend her to anyone requiring time-sensitive copy editing or proofreading for their financial and sustainability reporting.

Kathy Sauder, Lead Proofreader

Whatever level of editing our clients need

Proofreading testimonial from Gravity Inc.

Carmen has been our editor on numerous client projects, from reports to investor relations materials. Responsive and easy to work with, she’s able to provide whatever level of editing our clients need, whether it’s a high-level read for logic, tone, and flow, or checking those tiny (but critical) details that make the finished piece professional and credible.

Wendy Gray, Founder and Creative Director

She advocates for the reader

Proofreader testimonial from Parcel Design.

Our design studio is focused on creating engaging branded content, and quality copy is an essential part of any brand story. Carmen is quick to immerse herself in our clients’ brand vision. She corrects errors and inconsistencies based on brand style, and advocates for the reader where text needs finessing for word choice or clarity. In today’s knowledge economy, it’s never been more important to work with an editor who cares as much about your content as you do.

Erin Brand, Partner

I can’t say enough about her professionalism

Client testimonial for Edits Approved from Better Builder Magazine.

As a busy small-business owner and magazine publisher, I can’t say enough about Carmen’s level of professionalism, responsiveness, and creative input into Better Builder magazine. Her contributions to Better Builder over the years have helped it to be vital to builder education and made the magazine a great read.

John Godden, Publisher

Her edits make the final magazine a better product

Editing testimonial from Our Kids Media.

Carmen edits a suite of lifestyle magazines for us each year. Our magazines always have numerous contributors with different writing styles, and a lot of visual elements, so it’s important that a proofreader pays attention to everything on the page. We are confident that her edits help make the final magazine a better product.

Wonderful to work with

Carmen Siu is a skilled designer – she is both creative and meticulous. She brings energy and enthusiasm to every project, and is wonderful to work with. Always cheerful and flexible, she works closely with editorial colleagues to ensure a professional product that is both attractive and informative.
