Testimonials

“Since Claire joined my team 2 years ago I have been much impressed by her work. She is reliable and thorough, and it is obvious that she takes the trouble to check or query any doubtful items. She always sends in work, be it translations or editing, on time. She would be a valuable addition to any team.” Mirella Biagi, International Choral Bulletin
