I am the founder and CEO of Ki Design, a data protection and privacy compliance consultancy. It is my pleasure to recommend Jo Roberts, who has supported me in numerous projects as an editor, writer, and researcher.

Ms. Roberts’ work is of superior quality. She deals professionally with content of varying type and complexity, and can co-ordinate text from multiple sources to produce quality output.  She is diligent, friendly, and deals well with clients. If you need to produce a report, proposal, position paper, or marketing materials, or if you are developing a book project, Ms. Roberts is your go-to person.

Both of the projects Ms. Roberts worked on involved complicated editing, dealing with contributors’ pieces of uneven quality and differing styles, as well as displaying a wide variety of cultural perspectives and language abilities. Ms. Roberts was extremely proficient at thoroughly editing the pieces for grammatical and language errors, substantively editing where necessary to strengthen the “message” of the pieces, while maintaining the “voice” of the contributors in the process. I can also say, based on my working relationship with Ms. Roberts, that she is thorough, punctual, extremely conscientious and very able to work in a collegial manner on complex editorial processes.

I have no hesitation in commending Ms. Roberts’ superb editorial skills.

While we worked together, I was very impressed by the degree of skill and intellect that she brought to this project. She did an excellent job of correcting my errors and turning my overly-complex prose into a more concise and readable form. Aside from the superior copy editing, she also understood the material and offered some very important structural advice which I incorporated. This advice showed how much she appreciated both the substantive content (which in places was very detailed and technical) and the intellectual threads that I was trying to weave.

Her work was an enormous benefit to this project. It was done in a timely and co-operative manner. It was a pleasure working with her.

May I thank you for the truly splendid job you have done editing my manuscript.

— Professor Jeffrey Berryman,
author, The Law of Equitable Remedies


Finishing a manuscript can be a very stressful experience, especially when the project is interdisciplinary and demands a lot of attention to conceptual clarity and consistency. Jo’s involvement allowed me to focus on what was really crucial and to rest assured that my readers would enjoy the final product. Despite the challenging nature of the text, she was able to not only make it more readable for the final audience, but also to make suggestions regarding the structure of my argument.

Professional, reliable, flexible… these are just a few of the qualities which made working with Jo a pleasure.

My co-author, Susan M. Vella, and I are pleased to recommend Jo Roberts as a copy and substantive editor of legal manuscripts.

Ms. Roberts assisted us by making recommendations on where we could cut or consolidate without sacrificing substantive content. She also made helpful comments regarding tightening our syntax.…

We found Ms. Roberts to be professional and easy to work with, and do not hesitate to recommend her editorial services.
