Reviews

Here is what some of Ms. Scott’s Clients are saying about her.

Reviews for Editing (fiction and non-fiction)

“I have had the pleasure of working with Galen Scott on various projects over the past 20 years. During that time, Ms. Scott has line- and copy-edited numerous fiction and non-fiction manuscripts, edited personal and business correspondence and handled website creation and maintenance for me. I have found her to be consistently accurate, knowledgeable, comprehensive and professional. In addition to those skills, it has been my experience that Ms. Scott is the single best continuity editor I have worked with in the field of fiction.”
–Mallory Kane, Multi-award-winning, internationally best-selling author of more than 50 novels.

“My professional relationship with Galen began in 2016 when she offered her services to review a graduate fellowship application. I was really pushing the deadline with my application and she was able to turn around her edits in record time. Moving forward with graduate school, I’ll be employing Galen to edit my research papers pre-submission and my dissertation. I’m studying computational astrophysics, which is quite different from most of the research areas Galen has previously worked with; this is really a testament to Galen’s skills and adaptability as an editor.”
— Claire Kopenhafer, Doctoral Student, Computational Astrophysics

“Galen has worked with me as an editor for over 13 years, now. In that time period, she has edited grant proposals, numerous papers and abstract proposals for conferences, papers and my dissertation for my PH.D. in Medical Anthropology. She has helped me put together handouts for talks, power point presentations and my C. V. Depending on  what I needed, she was able to do everything from content editing (e.g. you forgot to define a key concept) to copy editing and line editing and did a fantastic job of getting things back to me quickly.  She has been an invaluable asset as an editor and I highly recommend her service to others.”
-Dr. RoseAnna Downing-Vicklund, Ph.D of Medical Anthropology

Reviews for Resumes and Website work

“Galen rebuilt my employer’s website. The final product was so good, we hired her again when we landed a major contract that necessitated an expansion of the site.”
— K. Vicklund, Electrical Engineer

Reviews for Transcription work

Galen Scott work on 17 very long and in-depth interviews for my dissertation for my Ph.D in Medical Anthropology. She transcribed 15 of them in total and pulled data from the other two that could be used. These interviews were not easy to transcribe, both because of the poor recording quality and because of the sometimes difficult accents and colloquialisms. She not only did a fantastic job in figuring out the hard to understand sections, but also read up on the background events of the research so that she could better recognize important names, institutions, and events that people were discussing. Most transcribers will simply mark a text as “intelligible” and move on; that she took the extra time to write a more accurate transcription and saved me a tone of work in the process makes her a consummate professional. I heartily recommend her as a transcriptionist to others.”
-Dr. RoseAnna Downing-Vicklund, Ph.D of Medical Anthropology

I will definitely be continuing to work with her.”
