Testimonials

“Cyndi Berck is the best professional editor I have worked with in terms of English and, more importantly, economic thought. She not only proofreads but also understands the concepts and gives me comments that improve the overall flow of the document and make the message clear. She works around my deadlines with care and diligence. One of the articles was published shortly after the editing and was instrumental to my successful tenure case!” — Sofia Berto Villas-Boas, Professor of Agricultural and Resource Economics, U.C. Berkeley


“Cyndi Berck was an excellent source of editorial assistance when I co-authored an economics textbook. She knew enough about the subject matter to make substantive contributions, but also was able to tell us when we needed to clarify our work for the student reader. She helped with small things such as grammar; large issues such as organization; and everything in between. The textbook would be much less clear, and would have taken much longer, without her contributions.” — Gloria Helfand, Adjunct Associate Professor, University of Michigan


“Tony’s editing is great. The quality of the editing is way above the average of the market. Since Tony is a retired economics professor, many times he would further provide valuable comments on the writing of technical issues (e.g., identification strategy) in the paper. That goes beyond the expectation of the customers.” — Min Wang, Associate Professor, National School of Development, Peking University


“As a non-native speaker, I struggled with my English writing during my graduate studies in economics. Therefore, I sought help from several professional editors, and Cyndi Berck is the one I like best. Cyndi is exceptionally thorough, kind, and encouraging. She edits with a light hand except where the needs are greatest, i.e., she is non-intrusive, and her comments are easy to understand. She also goes the extra mile to teach principles of writing. Not only the edited papers, but also my English writing, are generally improved. One of my dissertation committee members commented that ‘your English writing is extremely good.’ Well, he does not know the secret – I have Cyndi.” — Lunyu Xie, Associate Professor of Economics, Renmin University, Beijing.


“I can most strongly recommend Cyndi Berck’s editing services. She is truly excellent, quick and an established university vendor. 100% success rate at top 5 journals from my perspective.” — Max Auffhammer, Professor of Agricultural and Resource Economics, U.C. Berkeley


“I think that the work that you do is absolutely fantastic. I really appreciate how you comment not only on language but also on repetition and things like that. I also like how you phrase your comments. Your comments are always very instructive and easy to follow. You are simply the best!” — Andrea Mannberg, Umea University, Sweden
