Here is what people are saying about
The Naked Editor...


'Daniela proofed an update of our Talk Italian coursebook. She did a thorough, professional job and delivered promptly. She was also a delight to work with on a personal level. This was the first time that we had engaged her services and we would certainly like to work with her again in the future.' Emma Brown, Project Editor, BBC Active Languages


‘With my first novel complete, an agent found I was instructed by her to get the manuscript edited. It is a daunting prospect for an author to find an editor – where do you go to find one? What do you look for? And for me it was also: what do they do, specifically?

On our first contact all of these questions and more were answered clearly and concisely by Daniela – a totally professional response in every aspect.  After some consultation she emailed me with a very acceptable total amount that would be charged.

With infinite patience, she guided me along the uncharted path of editing. Daniela met my total ignorance with knowledge and still made me feel good! Her suggestions were always insightful and made me realise the true worth of a very talented editor.  

I am sure there are many editors out there but, for me, the essence of Daniela is that she cares, she wants to do right by you, her ego is definitely nowhere in sight, and that allows the author’s voice to remain true, but tempered to make better reading. I learnt so much working with her; I am a better writer because of her, and my book felt safe in her hands because I always knew she had my best interest at heart.’

B. D. Sherret, author


‘Daniela worked quickly and with great skill on a book manuscript translated from Italian to English, turning it from a rough draft to a polished publication in no time at all. She was a pleasure to work with and is at the top of our ist for Italian-language projects in the future!’
