I hired Andrew to proofread my poetry collection ‘Quinta Pitanga’ consisting of poems I wrote in Brazil and Morocco. It wasn’t easy for me to find someone to proofread poetry full of footnotes, wordplays and allusions, but Andrew stood out among all of those who applied for test translation and won me instantly. His solutions for the words and verses I couldn’t find myself was at the same time so obvious but also very creative, he carefully read all the poems in Croatian and tried to preserve their sounds, rhythm and meaning in the English translation – which is not an easy thing to do! In doing so, he proved to be a poet himself and I am forever grateful that he gave such a beautiful voice to my poems in English
I found working with Andrew Hodges very pleasurable and his editing skills work deserves a special mention. Why?
1. He is quick to assess the level of work needed to improve, and refine the manuscript.
2. He is very reliable, which in the age of hyperproduction is a rarety.
3. Even after the end of his editing work, he was open and reachable for another round of advice and improvement on the text. Very dedicated.
His primary fields are social theory, history, sociology – I am sure he can cover a few more fields.
My book The Partisan Counter-Archive would have not met the deadlines without him, and am sure, would not be nicely refined.
Endi je jedan od najvećih careva koje znam! Šalu na stranu, ali pregledao mi je doktorat, imao nekoliko digitalizovanih analiza stila, citata i preporuka za dalji rad. Sa ispravkama i korekcijama sam zadovoljan i pored toga sam počeo da pratim Endijev blog zbog jezičkih saveta i generalnih preporuka kako izbeći neke uobičajene greške pri pisanju na engleskom. Specijalizacija mu je akademsko pisanje i upoznat je sa standardima i praksama u različitim zemljama, tako da preporučujem!
Andrew ha editado un articulo para presentar por segunda vez en una prestigiosa revista de antropología social europea. Su trabajo ha sido muy meticuloso y riguroso. La revisión es detallada y muy comprensiva, abarcando incluso la redacción global y su coherencia con el texto global. Estoy muy agradecida de su trabajo y lo recomiendo completamente. Es confiable, de alta calidad académica y de excelente calidad.
Andrew has edited my MA thesis, PhD dissertation and some of my papers for publishing in academic journals. He pays great attention to details, is very fast and never misses deadlines. Given his background in anthropology, he provides very good comments on the content as well. When necessary, he has completed in-depth editing, whilst trying to keep my style intact. He is also a patient reader, keeping his focus even on very dull parts of my work. He is a perfect choice for any kind of academic writing.
