We commissioned Sophie to proofread the Annual Report for the Materials Department of a London University. It was a challenging document of over 120 pages, containing many chemical formulae and scientific terms, requiring consistency to be established across material from many different sources. Sophie was efficient and accurate and both ourselves and the University were very happy with the result.

I am absolutely delighted with the work Sophie has done in preparing 'Innovation, Enterprise and Change on the Greenwich Peninsula' for publication. She has been meticulous in proofreading, and also in picking up both ambiguities and phrases which need clarification. I have now been able to clear it for printing with a great deal more confidence. Thank you.

I have worked with Sophie Bristow for a few years now and can say that, without doubt, she is one of the best freelancers I have made contact with, and I know that any work sent to her will be completed on time and without mistake. Not only is Sophie diligent, she is also very  approachable and good with communicating to you when something isn’t clear, or if more guidance is needed – qualities which I have found are vital to producing high-quality copy-edits and proofreads.

It was my pleasure to be Sophie's mentor on the Society for Editors and Proofreaders' mentoring scheme. Her work was always of the highest standard and her queries were insightful and helpful. She understood how to balance the desire to present a polished text with the cost implications of changes made at proof stage - and she never missed a deadline. Sophie would make a valuable addition to any editorial team.

When I reviewed your amendments to my manuscript I thought, 'It's such a relief to see these mistakes and oversights highlighted. Sophie has done a really excellent job.'

So I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with your work and how grateful I am for what you've done.

Thank you so much.

Sophie edited my novel, 'The Last Drogue'. She has a great eye, a really thorough approach to her work, and brings taste and intelligence to the delicate business of editing complex material. I can't recommend her work highly enough.
