Ragini Werner, Editor + Translator



Ragini works very accurately. She pays attention to the details, but certainly to the big picture as well. Her editing resulted not just in a clearer and more confident text, it created a better balance and more unity. The text has now become a full-fledged manuscript. I hesitated to appoint an editor, seeing little need for editing, but Ragini's work convinced me that it can have great added value and that a good language editor can make your own voice stand out even more.

I have taken the time to look at your edits because I want to learn from them and improve my English). I am delighted with your changes. It is almost frustrating to see how you have turned certain lines that I was not happy with into beautiful concise sentences. I am so happy with your improvements. Thanks again! You will hear from me again in a couple of months, when I’ll make use of your good service again.

How happy you've made me

How happy you’ve made me with this stunning version. I often wondered how I could make the text better and now you’ve done it beautifully. Top! Thanks also for the additional explanation. It keeps me learning. Thank you so much, for the speedy delivery too. I definitely want to use your services again in future.

Reliable, knowledgeable and flexible

For many years NEEDSer has been the translator and/or editor of my academic publications in psychology. Even though I always mean to send my texts to Gini well before the deadline... often it is at the last moment. However, Gini has never missed a deadline!

You’ve made a real difference

Terrific that you could edit my PhD dissertation so quickly! Just had a look and see that you’ve made a real difference, although I was glad to hear that the first version was already quite readable ;-). I’ll let you know when a chapter gets published (cross fingers!) and will pass your details on to other colleagues. Thanks for your good work!

Super thanks...

“Super thanks for editing the article. I’m really happy with the result. The text is indeed much tighter now, without any loss of meaning.”

Quick and great work!

I have just finished working through your language edits. Thank you again for your quick and great work! I have accepted virtually all of your suggestions. Only when it comes to hyphens I have not accepted all, to stick with the standards used in the literature.
