"I am happy to recommend KHO Language Services. I was very satisfied and deeply impressed by the proofreading carried out on the final manuscript of my PhD thesis. Kay did a close and careful reading of the text within the time frame we had decided upon. Her grammatical correction of errors and suggestions for improvement of the text were exactly what I wanted and needed in order to revise the text before publication. She treated the text with the utmost respect. Knowing her ability and sincere commitment, I strongly recommend her for proofreading services."
Kristina Myrvold, Centre for Theology and Religious Studies, Lund University, Sweden
"For my latest report "Discriminating Depressive Patients and Patients with Somatoform Disorders by means of the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI)" (2007, Lund Psychological Reports, 8, Nr 3) I consulted Kay Hutchings-Olsson for proofreading. I found her work to be very professional and was pleased with both the speed and thoroughness of her work. I will certainly consult her for forthcoming tasks and can warmly recommend her to others."

"It was my pleasure to get help with proofreading of my text from Kay Hutchings-Olsson. She understood very well the needs of refining the text according to the demands of my supervisor. I am very much grateful to her for repeatedly correcting my text, even for the third time in some parts after I worked on it upon my supervisor's dictation. I would recommend others to have their proofreading carried out by Kay Hutchings-Olsson."

"Kay Hutchings-Olsson har under 2011 och 2012 korrekturläst och till viss del översatt en bok om svenskt lantbruk åt Föreningen för Skogs- och Lantbruksjournalister. Boken är specialskriven för en internationell kongress för lantbruksjournalister från ett 30-tal länder. Författarna är svenska journalister, som skrivit på svenska eller ganska dålig engelska. Kay Hutchings-Olsson har förvandlat texten till fint flytande engelska utan att det fackmässiga innehållet gått förlorat. Det är ett nöje att samarbeta med Kay Hutchings-Olsson eftersom hon är snabb, korrekt och dessutom trevlig. Hon har lämnat korrekturförslag som gör det lätt att följa vad som hänt med texten och acceptera valfria ändringar. En stor fördel för oss är att hon pratar utmärkt svenska och att hennes arbete är mycket prisvärt. Jag rekommenderar Kay Hutchings-Olsson varmt till alla uppdrag som rör det engelska språket."
Tina Andersson, Styrelseledamot i Föreningen för Skogs- och Lantbruksjournalister och reporter på ATL, Lantbrukets Affärstidning, Sverige
"Kay did a great job proofreading my PhD thesis in Media History, at a competitive price. She worked fast and was remarkably flexible. Kay is always helpful and highly service-minded. I can very much recommend KHO Language Services."
Emilia Ljungberg, Department of Communication and Media, Lund University
"We hired Kay Hutchings-Olsson to do language editing for a series of book proposals, and she provided professional service and quick turnaround times! We were very happy with the results. The proposals were accepted by the publisher and I believe having the manuscripts language checked by her was a decisive factor."
Jonas Harvard, Programme Manager, Södertörn University, Stockholm, Sweden
"Kay did really good and professional work, worked fast and was flexible regarding when to do the proofreading."
Carolina Martinez, Department of Communication and Media, Lund University, Sweden
"I contacted Kay for proofreading of my Master Thesis and could not have made a better choice. When I found Kay's website I had already been in contact with a couple of different firms but no one could really offer what I was looking for. Kay not only made a perfect job with my text, she also offered encouragement, understanding and a great deal of flexibility when it was need the most. I will always be very thankful for her support and professional job so if you have the chance to work with Kay, take it."
Victoria Stolpe, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark

"Many thanks for your good work. Yesterday I recommended you to someone else!"
Thord Svensson, PhD student in philosophy of religion at Lund University, Sweden
"Jag är så glad att min text språkgränskades! Kay är tydligen mycket skicklig och har hittat väldigt många små skrivfel m.m. Jag är speciellt imponerad över att hon har t.o.m. upptäckte ett skrivfel i ett långt japanskt namn."
J. Hennessey, Lunds universitet
"I am not a native speaker of English and I am aware of the importance of accurate language, especially but not only when it comes to academic texts. I find that many colleagues, albeit fluent, overestimate their own writing skills and I am always annoyed to see slight mistakes in texts that are supposed to reach an academic readership. I entrusted my monograph "Islam and the Quest of Modern Science" to Kay Hutchings. She demonstrated all the qualities that I appreciate in a colleague and in a proofreader: very accurate, rapid, and also ready to answer my questions regarding the reasons for a specific correction, or the different options I could think of. I strongly recommend her."
Stefano Bigliardi, Postdoctoral researcher, Centre for Middle Eastern Studies, Lund University, Sweden
"Thank you so much for editing the webpage text We Call Them Vikings. I have already forwarded it to our web administrator and let's hope it will appear soon on the website. Thanks again – for your generosity and your patience!"
Michaela Helmbrecht, Museumspartner, Innsbruck, Austria
"I am very satisfied with your work, thank you so much!"
Eva Skowronski, FM, Doktorand Migrationsvetenskap Centrum för teologi och religionsvetenskap, Lunds universitet
"I’ve received many favorable comments on Kay’s article, so much so, that I’ve asked her to consider writing a series of articles to help my members develop their writing skills. Kay has excellent writing skills. She is a pleasure to work with. Whatever your writing needs – sales letters, squeeze pages, brochures, direct mail, articles and blog posts, editing and/or proofreading -- you can’t go wrong by engaging her services."
Bud Bilanich, Career Mentor and Best-selling Author, USA
"Kay proofread the English and Swedish portions of a diary translation I led in 2015. It is a rare primary source document about the only Swede of African descent who was a member of the Swedish Royal Court in the 18th century. This was a public domain project from my heart. So I needed an expert to be the final pair of eyes. She made sure every missing period was added and alternative definitions of archaic words were included (among other countless and grueling edits). She accommodated my workflow with Microsoft Word tracking and even PDF when we were in the layout stage. I feel 100% confident in her English and Swedish editing skills. I have other projects that will need her expertise and I cannot think of anyone else to hire but her! Skål to Kay!"
Eric Basir, USA
Thank you for your work. I hope to have my defense early spring!
Andreas Johansson, Ph.D. candidate, Research Associate, SASNET, Research coordinator, Lund University
Kay Hutchings-Olsson did an impressive proofreading of my thesis. She arranged my thoughts and writing better than I have ever could without even knowing me or the topic, I am impressed beyond words! I have adopted nearly all her suggestions and made a lot of notes to improve my future writing. I was really surprised by how well she split the text chunks into paragraphs according to the content, which gave me a better overview of my own thesis.
Likki-Lee Pitzen, M.Sc. Asian Studies, Lund University
Thank you so much Kay for speedy delivery - and quality. You are one of my favourite translators.
Kiran Gerhardsson, doctoral student in environmental psychology, Lund University
