• Elizabeth Jean Betsch


As an independent translator and editor who has worked with Elizabeth since 1989, I am able to say that she brings great professionalism to the craft of editing. She values her working relationships, communicates instructions clearly, and delivers feedback gently. She loves language. This makes it a pleasure to work with her.

Elizabeth Betsch is a thorough and competent editor. She worked for me as Associate Editor of Canadian Family Physician, the medical journal of the College of Family Physicians of Canada, for more than a decade. I found her up-to-date on styles and methods of editing and knowledgeable in ways of solving problems with language, with tables and graphs, and with reference material. She sees both the big picture and the details and is meticulous in ensuring that texts are correct, appealing, and appropriate for their intended readers.

Elizabeth’s mind-boggling attention to detail and depth of knowledge are rivaled only by her incredible sense of humour. When hiring Elizabeth for freelance assignments, I always know that I can have complete confidence in the finished product and that she will be an absolute delight to work with. I consider myself fortunate for any opportunity to work with her.
