"Rachel Finnegan has always delivered a great product back to me in a timely and cost-effective manner. I am impressed with Rachel's experience by professionally editing my papers and delivering them well before my requested deadline.

Silvia Menegazzi

"I cannot speak highly enough of Rachel's work. Writing to a high academic standard is not a skill that we are born with and it is one that I have struggled with. I found Rachel's service when preparing a journal article and her professional and quick service really made a difference to our work. Now engaged in my doctoral studies I have continued to use Rachel's proofreading service. This has had many benefits as I have improved my writing standard and Rachel's feedback has aided in cutting my errors within my texts. My confidence level as an academic writer has improved, I will continue to use Rachel's services into the future."

"I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Rachel Finnegan, she expertly proofread two journal papers for me and her attention to detail is excellent. All of the deadlines were met, papers were hugely improved and I will certainly use Rachel again."

Dr Orla Nic Suibhne, Postdoc, UCD

"We have been cooperating with Rachel for over three years. On numerous occasions, this fruitful and friendly cooperation has proven Rachel’s ultimate professionalism, her eye for detail and intercultural awareness. We highly value such qualities, considering the number of proofreading, copywriting and editing projects that we deal with every day. One of our clients, a well-known global educational publishing house based in the UK, asks specifically to involve Rachel in proofreading assignments.

Personally, I do appreciate Rachel’s most kind and helpful approach. The quality of her work combined with reliability and flexibility (you can be sure that Rachel would meet even the tightest deadline) makes her one of our most valued partners we have the pleasure to work with.

Rachel – thank you!"

“I would highly recommend Rachel for the quality and efficiency of her work. Rachel proof read and edited my book 'The Enterprising Community'. I was amazed and thrilled with her professionalism and attention to detail. Her regular feedback and advice on improving every aspect of the content of the book was an outstanding feature of her work.”

Dr Senan Cooke, Lecturer, Dublin City University (DCU)

“I could not praise Dr. Rachel Finnegan any higher, I have recommended her to my colleagues and others with respect to her copy-editing work. Along with Rachel’s speed and attention to detail, I had constant professional feedback allowing my research to reach its true potential. I look forward to working with Rachel again in the future.”

Francis Noel Duffy, M.Arch. Dublin School of Architecture

"As a non-native English writer, I was looking for a proofreader who could improve my sentences but without changing my style too much either. After trying half-a-dozen, I was very glad to find Rachel: she understands where I'm going with my texts, her edits are spot-on, and she balances very well these two aspects of correcting while still leaving the tone of my own voice perceptible. A reliable partner."

Clement, PhD, Switzerland

"Rachel has completed several projects for me. I’ve no hesitation in recommending her to you. Her work is high quality. She’s fast, flexible, helpful and can take initiative when needed. Rachel met some tight deadlines ahead of schedule. I found her eminently trustworthy in all my dealings with her."

"I would highly recommend Rachel Finnegan because of the excellent proofreading work she did on my PhD thesis. Her work is of high academic standard.

"Rachel Finnegan proofread my MSc thesis dissertation. She did a fantastic job with a really quick turnaround. It was really worthwhile having her do this.

I would definitely use her services again and would recommend her services!"

"Knowing that  I had engaged the proofreading services of Rachel was a huge comfort to me as I was endeavouring to complete my MSc Dissertation. Her ability to communicte succinctly and promptly to any query I had was exceptional. I had been trying to source a proofreader online with limited success ... I found Rachel to be highly professional and very approachable ... [and] would not hesitate to recommend [her] proofreading service to anyone, and indeed have done so already for two student colleagues."

Conor, MSc student (Year 2), Trinity College Dublin.

"I cannot recommend Rachel and Irish Academic Editing highly enough. I was in the final stages of my MSc dissertation and felt I needed an experienced eye to ensure my work was presented in the best possible way. I found Rachel to be extremely professional, her exceptional attention to detail and obvious experience were very reassuring, but what I appreciated most was her flexible and accommodating manner."

"Having someone as professional, detail-oriented and efficient as Dr. Rachel Finnegan proof-read my dissertation, meant I could submit my work knowing it was a finely-tuned and polished piece of writing. Dr. Finnegan's attention to detail and excellent communication skills meant any corrections were easy to follow, enhancing my work to the level it needed to be at. I would strongly recommend her services to anyone who wishes to achieve the best they can with their work and for the peace of mind that comes with knowing that."
