Dr. Boris Verbrugge
Senior Researcher, KU Leuven
Extremely professional and incredible value-for-money
Marieke edited an article that I co-authored with a Tanzanian PhD-student. As an ex-colleague, I knew that Marieke would deliver, but the result was even better than expected. Aside from the foolproof language editing, she made clear efforts to understand the message that the author wanted to bring across, and she made some very useful suggestions as to how the article can be improved further. It was at least partly thanks to her professional editing services that the article was accepted without major revisions.

Andrea Núñez Casal
PhD Candidate, Goldsmiths, University of London, United Kingdom
Marieke proofread and formatted my doctoral dissertation. I could not be more satisfied with the result. She was very conscious about and sensitive to the nature and challenges of my work and writing, involving embodied experiences of health and disease. She is incredibly accurate, reliable, responsible and transparent, all essential qualities in a editor, and especially so for early-career researchers, an uncertain stage in which the pressures of authorship and publishing are at its highest. In addition, working with Marieke turned the weeks before the official submission of my PhD into a pleasurable experience! I highly recommend her editorial services.

Dr. Hagar Kotef
Senior Lecturer, SOAS University of London, United Kingdom
Marieke worked with me on a book manuscript, and was a thorough, attentive, and very engaged editor. She worked incredibly efficiently, even though the text was quite dense theoretically.  She did a fantastic work in making it clean, correct, and coherent – both in technical terms (style of references, redundancies, typos), but also in terms of the argument. Her work is truly excellent and I highly recommend her as an editor.

Lyna Comaty
PhD and author
Working with Marieke was a pleasure. She helped me turn my 300-page PhD dissertation into an interesting monograph publication. She quickly grasped the subject and had a very coherent proposal. I loved how she guided me in her comments and changes, always checking whether the changes were done and whether they made sense. Work was always submitted on time and she was always an email away when I had a question. She is a professional editor, I definitely recommend her.

I highly recommend the work of Dr. Marieke Krijnen. She read a rather lengthy document in a short time, was always quick to respond to my emails, and came up with excellent corrections and suggestions. I am happy with the outcome and would certainly trust her again with my work-in-progress!

Claudine Abdelmassih
Vice-President, Arab Center for Architecture, Beirut, Lebanon; coordinator of the Lebanese pavilion, Venice Architecture Biennale, Italy
We were in urgent need of a copy editor for the Lebanese Pavilion’s catalogue at the Biennale Architettura 2018 and I asked Marieke if she could help. Even though she was involved in other works, she managed to deliver an excellent work in a record time. I think she’s one of the best choices we made for this project. And I highly recommend her for her efficiency, accuracy and availability. Thank you again Marieke.

UR (Urban Research)the imprint of Terreform
New York, United States
With her background in urban issues and editorial acumen, Marieke proofed our manuscript meticulously in a matter of days. Through her notes, we sensed that she was thinking along with our text, a rare and especially helpful trait. Needless to say, we will be relying on her services whenever possible in the future.

Dutch Master student
Mijn ervaringen met Marieke zijn in een woord super te noemen. Ze is echt heel erg goed in haar vakgebied, ze is zakelijk en direct in haar communicatie en blijft daarnaast zeer betrokken. Ze heeft mij uitstekend geholpen over een periode van 4 maanden en de kwaliteit van mijn stukken enorm verhoogd. Ze reageert ongelofelijk snel op mijn emails, kortom het was een plezier om met haar samen te werken.

Dr. Miriam Stock
Juniorprof. University of Education Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany
Marieke is a great editor and a very pleasant and reliable person to work with. I had to review an article and needed some language editing. Marieke did a very quick, highly accurate and also creative editing of my article that improved the quality tremendously.

Marie Karner
PhD-candidate, Institute of Geography, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany
I can highly recommend Marieke if you are looking for a professional editor who is reliable and very accurate. She responds to e-mails immediately and edited an article at very short notice. Thanks to her expertise in the Middle East, she also comments on content-related formulations. I agreed to all of her suggestions for changes which is the best proof for the high quality of her work.

Michela De Giacometti
PhD-candidate, School of Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences, Paris, France
I had to submit an academic article and asked Marieke for editing and review. Marieke is very professional and competent. Her work was very accurate. Not only is she proficient, but her comments made my work improved. She is also very efficient: she works quickly and reacts rapidly to emails. Marieke is totally trustworthy! I recommend her!

Dr. Hiba Bou Akar
Assistant professor, Columbia University, New York, United States
If you are looking for someone to help you with the argument of your book, Marieke can certainly do that. She’s also a very pleasant and responsible person to work with.
