Helena did an outstanding job copy-editing my LLM (law master’s) thesis, where she revised my writing for grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure. She also gave me valuable pointers regarding the logic of my arguments and helped me ensure that my writing followed a clear structure with all loose ends tied up.

Helena went above and beyond the scope of her work, helping me troubleshoot and problem-solve a technical issue I was having with my literature management software. Being able to rely on her put me at ease in a stressful and time pressured situation, and I was so thankful for her help and support.

Throughout working with Helena, I always found her extremely competent, professional, and easy to work with, and I was especially grateful for her flexibility and availability to work to my needs and deadlines. I can’t recommend Helena highly enough, and she continues to be my go-to person for all language matters.

Helena is extremely knowledgeable and is a role model for practicing and teaching business writing. I gained so many valuable insights from her Masterclass workshop and my business writing has substantially improved. Best of all, I now have to confidence and knowledge to tell the difference between good and bad pieces of writing.

I attended the Masterclass in the hope of improving my writing, but the additional tidbits I learned about consumer psychology blew me away. After implementing the strategies Helena taught me, I immediately saw a spike in my page visits and a noticeable increase in conversions.

My experience with the founding members of TALES – Translation & Academic Language Editing Services, Helena and Isabella, was always great and to my complete satisfaction. I used their editing service several times, particularly for improving the style and language of academic texts related to the broad field of GIScience. The communication with Helena and Isabella was easy and prompt, and they always sent the edited versions very well in time. But not only the English language was significantly improved, but also the scientific context was perfectly considered during editing, suggesting appropriate technical and scientific terms, and making the academic texts more easily comprehensible. I will definitely make use of their editing service again and can highly recommend TALES to anybody looking for a professional, reliable and fast service.

TALES has supported me several times already. As a non-native English speaker, it is important for me to provide my scientific publications in high quality – not only content wise but also with a sound language. TALES helped me to improve the language quality of my manuscript significantly – in short time and with high accuracy.

During my MSc degree, Isabella Merschdorf was assigned to help other students and me as a tutor of English language. After a few sessions with Ms. Merschdorf, I was satisfied with the quality of teaching and results. The classes under her leadership were interesting and held competently and in a relaxed atmosphere. This allowed us to be liberated and fully involved in the process. The focus of the sessions was improving the quality of oral speech, particularly in the academic context.
After our joint activities, I feel progress in my English, both in speaking and grammar in academic terms. In addition, Ms. Merschdorf has helped me to fix errors and adjust grammar mistakes in my scientific paper. Professional editing provided by Isabella was at a high level. This has helped me to improve my scientific paper and, accordingly, its assessment. I was very satisfied with the timeliness and quality of the work that she did.
I wish Isabella and her sister Helena success in their endeavours! I believe that with their service, you can achieve great results!

I have been working with Isabella and Helena for almost three years now. They have proofread several of my manuscripts and presentations and made meaningful corrections if it was needed. They added valuable comments and their suggestions to fine-tune the language of the drafts. They are reliable and quick who work with great care and attention to details. I am very glad to continue our cooperation. Thanks…

I’ve known Helena and Isabella since 2011 when I started my doctoral studies at the University of Salzburg in Austria. They have edited several of my scientific publications including the framework text my PhD thesis. As a non-native English speaker, their revisions were highly important for my work. They are punctual, perfectionists and always tried to help me improve my regular grammatical or syntactical errors. I believe that I have improved my writing with their help and I have never had a language related- issue in any of my published research studies. Apart from my personal experience, I know that Helena and Isabella provided their editing services for several years in our department with great success. Also, they were giving presentation and writing courses to new doctoral students. I truly trust and respect their work.

The TALES team edited assignments throughout my MSc degree as well as my Master thesis. I am very happy with their work, and they helped me to improve my papers regarding not only grammar issues but also issues they found regarding the GIS related content. I can highly recommend their work, and I know they have done a great job not only for me but also for other colleagues and fellow students. The TALES team is professional, comprehensive, to the point, very fast, and is known for the high quality work in academic language editing.

Your professionalism and high-quality work were greatly appreciated. Quick turnaround times and a high level of work and communication made this a valuable and smooth process for me. Email communication was prompt, and the edited version of my manuscripts arrived well ahead of the deadline. I would definitely recommend your work to everyone, for PhDs, manuscripts or other important writing.

The English spelling and grammar editing of my published manuscripts improved not only my submitted scientific papers but also my personal writing skills. Even under tight time pressure Helena and Isabella managed a very fast, efficient and effective review and thus I strongly recommend this service to anyone who needs it.!

Working with TALES has been a great experience! TALES has expertly and promptly edited the English language of my papers. For me, it is very valuable to know that I can count on the professionalism of TALES for all my academic work. I definitely recommend TALES to everyone, especially to scholars and PhD students.
