These improvements have made it much easier for me to publish the manuscripts in international, peer-reviewed scientific journals. Because I am a non-native English writer I have some problems with the grammar. etc. and Glen has helped me to improve this. Glen has also helped my colleagues at Octapharma (a biopharmaceutical company with +1000 employees) to edit texts and posters for presentation at scientific conferences. We are all very satisfied and grateful for his help. Glen is reliable and finishes the editing on time.
