I strongly recommend Professor Bergmann to edit your text. Her work is very professional, she actually helped me to improve my manuscript. I have also appreciated her style, seriousness and helpfulness. She is committed to you in the sense that she stays with you until you consider your manuscript is fine and ready to be submitted. For me, this "face-to-face" contact with the copy editor is crucial. So, since I know the work of M. Bergmann, I will avoid "big english editing" companies.

Feb. 14, 2012:
I have been reading over your edits and all I have to say is REMARKABLE. You make the paragraphs flow. You make the argument clearer. I can't thank you enough for all your work. I am very grateful.

Jan. 10, 2012:
[She] has a precise and profound sense of the English language and a keen eye for detail. She not only carefully checked grammar and punctuation but also provided a number of constructive comments for improving the overall quality of the paper, which I appreciate immensely. She even went out of her way to make sure that the paper meets the guidelines of the targeted journal. She is by far the best editor I have ever worked with in my entire academic career. My heartfelt thanks for your excellent editing. I will definitely come back for more.
