“I wanted to let you know that I passed my PhD defence last Friday. The second examiner praised the high quality of the writing of my dissertation in front of all the professors. I want to give you a big thank you!!!!” (Comment translated from German)
(G. Kocur, Affiliated Researcher, MIT)

“Thank you once again for your help! My paper was accepted without any major corrections, which was probably due to the high quality of the writing.” (Comment translated from German)
(E. Raveglia, Research Associate, ETH Zurich)

Comment from a reviewer of the journal NDT&E International: “The manuscript is well written and interesting to read. […] Thanks for the good contribution.”
