What Others Have Said

Jolanta Komornicka did excellent and amazing work for me on Health Communication and Sport. Her work was punctual and I really appreciated that she was familiar with what the publisher needed and even caught some things I missed! I highly recommend Jolanta! She will be the only person I use for book projects moving forward!

I have trusted Jolanta to index two large multiauthor volumes for Cambridge University Press. Both projects involved contributions from a variety of disciplines and the terminological challenge this can entail. Jolanta has the perceptive eye for detail that these projects require. Both indexes were produced on time, and allowed the publication process to proceed seamlessly. I recommend her to anyone in the humanities.
