Developmental editing client, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, UC San Diego

“Rebecca was able to provide very useful, discerning copy edits on the first draft of my book manuscript. Although my book was written in English, it is about Cuba and includes many words in Spanish, some of which are particular to eastern Cuba.  Rebecca’s ability to navigate editing in English and Spanish was critical for my project.  In addition to being very astute in her edits, Rebecca was a pleasure to work with. She was very open to communicating about deadlines and willing to work within my needs.”

Editing client completing PhD in Psychology, University of Hull:

“Rebecca was my saviour during some very stressful times. She was so easy to reach, always available, and so understanding of my deadlines and time restrictions. She did a wonderful job on proofreading and editing my PhD thesis, and I am so grateful for all of her help. I couldn’t have asked for a better editor, she is so skilled at what she does, she found mistakes in my document in places that I could have sworn were perfect, and she made my thesis so much better. Thanks so much!”

Spanish translation client with PhD in Anthropology, UC Berkeley:

“Rebecca was essential in my dissertation writing process as she helped me with some very difficult interview translations from Spanish to English. She took the time to really understand what my research was about in order to make sure that the translations were culturally sensitive and relevant to the topic. She also provided me with feedback about her own analysis of the texts and interviews she helped translate in order to best guide me in my incorporation of these materials into the dissertation. Dr. Bodenheimer was extremely diligent with the work, often providing the translations ahead of when I asked, and was very professional in our interactions. I trusted her completely with sensitive data and I knew that she completely understood the importance of taking an ethical approach to working with interview transcripts. I would hope to use her freelance work again if I ever need another translator, and I believe that she would be an asset to any company or organization looking for help with research materials, data analysis, and work with sensitive data.”

Editing client with MSW in School of Social Welfare, UC Berkeley:

“Rebecca edited my personal statement for my grad school application. She greatly improved the essay and as a result I got in to to all of the schools that I applied to. She helped me with word choice, grammar, and content. And she also helped me to reorganize my essay so that it was easy to follow and more impactful. In addition to all of her help and skills, she is an absolute pleasure to work with. I highly recommend using her for your editing needs.”
