“Sabine Barcatta has worked as my copyeditor for the past six years. I just picked up my last manuscript from her on February 19, 2016. This represented the 7th book manuscript that she has completed for me.

She is punctual and detailed in her work. Not only does she deal with grammar and punctuation, she makes many useful comments on content, historicity, and is concerned with clarity of the project.

I have more manuscripts to have copyedited, and they will be delivered to Sabine Barcatta for her professional work. I highly recommend her.”

~ Jay D. Schvaneveldt, Prof. Emeritus, Utah State University (February 24, 2016)

“Sabine’s copy-edits for our recently published book, Lessons in Courage: Peruvian Shamanic Wisdom for Everyday Life (2013), by Bonnie Glass-Coffin, PhD, and don Oscar Miro-Quesada, were impeccable. She was easy to work with, thorough and very detail-oriented. She was also fast, turning the entire manuscript around in less than a week! In addition to her expertise as a copy-editor, I was impressed at the insightful questions she asked about colloquial expressions used in the text. With the lay-reader in mind, her suggestions helped us to revise some prose that, if not corrected, would have limited understanding of this work by the “uninitiated.” Our publisher also commented most favorably on how clean and clear the text was once she finished her edits. I would absolutely recommend Sabine Barcatta for your next writing project!”

“This has been—easily—the most seamless and pleasant experience I’ve had with a journal, from initial submission, through the review & revision process, copyediting, and moving … toward publication. Many thanks … for all of your wonderfully expert work on my article. It’s been a real pleasure.”

~ Robert Gunn, University of Texas at El Paso, Author of “John Russell Bartlett’s
Literary Borderlands: Ethnology, War, and the United States Boundary Survey,”
published in Western American Literature (2011)

“[A] person who has been central to this project is my copy editor, Sabine Barcatta, who has devoted her untiring help and expertise to this book. She has gone beyond the call of duty to insure the consistency and quality of the overall manuscript in terms of style, footnoting, end noting, and spelling. She has worked overtime, on weekends, and through many nights to meet deadlines and get the book into its final form.”

~ Renate Posthofen, from the Acknowledgments of
Barbara Frischmuth in Contemporary Context (1999)
