Mrs Harris has been working with me for over a year. She is a very precise, hard-working and reliable person. I recommend her to anyone who seeks a professional proofreader.

Pearl is a real pearl!

I would just like to say that I've been cooperating with Pearl since August, 2007 and she has proved to be an extremely helpful, qualified as well as friendly proofreader, willing to work overnight, if needed, to deliver top quality in time. The texts Pearl made perfect include various projects for Czech universities and institutions, many web pages (e.g. of the National Museum in Prague) and countless articles for Statuss and TopLiving Magazines. If you are looking for someone who will polish raw stones into gemstones, Pearl must be your first choice!

 Pearl Harris has been proofreading for the PP Agency s.r.o. since March, 2008.

PP Agency is one of the Czech Republic's  publishers of economic information focusing on the interests of foreign readers - businessmen, managers, investors. In this area, the PP Agency's publishing strategy is geared to providing economic information in its bimonthly journal "Czech Business and Trade", its publication "Doing Business in the Czech Republic", the territorial publications, the information server etc.

Mrs. Harris always provides us with accurate proofreading, usually before the deadline.  I can highly recommend her to anyone looking for a conscientious and reliable proofreader of English texts.

         Pearl Harris is a professional! It was a pleasure working with her. She delivered her work one week earlier than expected. The communication was very good. She answers every e-mail within hours and communicates in a clear and easy way. The work she delivered was more than I expected. I hope to work with her again in the near future.

David Luzsi (Muenich, Germany)

In 2007, I entrusted Pearl Harris, together with her husband, Dr. Ian Harris, with the important task of proofreading my linguistic treatise in English, entitled The Yeniseian Languages of the 18th Century and Ket and Sino-Tibetan Word Comparisons.  This work was subsequently published in the Central Asiatic Journal 52 (2008) 2, pp.219-305  by Harrassowitz Verlag, edited by Giovanni Stary.The proofreading of this text was an extremely complicated and laborious task, requiring extreme accuracy and attention to detail, a task which Pearl and Ian undertook in a most professional manner, in record time. I was delighted with the result of their work.  I can highly recommend either Ian or Pearl Harris for the proofreading of any English text,
in particular texts of an academic nature.

   I could not be happier with Pearl's work. I needed feedback on a book-length project and she gave me exactly what I was looking for, as well as suggested fixes that were spot on. This involved a huge amount of text and frankly, I don't know how she managed to turn it around so quickly. If six stars were allowed, Pearl gets a six.

I give her my strongest recommendation and will definitely use her services again.

I have been cooperating with Pearl Harris since the year 2007. She has proof-read several of my manuscripts from the field of Social Sciences, which I was able then to successfully publish in notable scientific journals. The revisions that she did for me, have always been fast, but at the same time careful and thorough - moreover, at a good price.

I worked with Pearl  Harris on two larger (about 120 and 50 pages) and a number of smaller projects. Her proofreading was always very thorough and careful. Pearl was also very flexible and co-operatiove as far as deadlines were concerned, which were, especially with the larger projects with very tight deadlines, not at all trivial. Besides, Pearl is a very friendly and kind and working with her is a pleasure.

  Thank you very much for cooperation. It is significantly better than before.

I couldn't write it that well in Czech!

Very last-minute, we were looking for a proof-reader for one of our papers. I found Pearl through Google, so I was a little concerned about her reliability at first. To my big surprise and satisfaction, Pearl was able to deliver within 4 days, 3 days before the agreed deadline. Her work is precise and the text was ready to be published. We will for sure be cooperating with Pearl again!

 As a translator from Czech to English and vice versa, I have worked with Ms. Pearl Harris on several proofreading projects for about 2 years. Besides some smaller projects, Pearl carried out proofreading of my translation of an extensive historical publication on religious history, but she also proofread my translation of a collection of poems. I very much appreciate her professionalism, perfectionism, grammatical and stylistic knowledge, as well as her experience with book editing. It is obvious that Pearl loves her job, has a complex attitude towards to it, and performs each project with enthusiasm and commitment. Communication with Pearl is always quick and excellent. I especially appreciate the fact that I can discuss every little detail with her, and she always patiently explains everything to me.

Therefore, I sincerely recommend the proofreading services of Ms. Pearl Harris.
