What clients say about Mim Eisenberg's services
Oral History Tape and Digital Transcription
I recommend Ms. Mim Eisenberg for any transcription work without any hesitation whatsoever. Her careful and accurate work, her self-imposed research to make certain that names and other items were spelled correctly, her promptness, and most of all the excellent end product have convinced me I would prefer to have her to do my work than any other transcriber I have known.
-George S. Pappas, Colonel, U.S. Army (Ret.)
Mim's work upholds the highest standards of professionalism: she is always prompt and unfailingly courteous. More importantly, her transcripts are as close to letter-perfect as they possibly could be. Mim carefully edits every transcript before returning it to us, thereby saving our project countless hours of editing time.
-Dr. Todd Moye, Director, Tuskegee Airmen Oral History Project, National Park Service
We couldn't be happier with Mim's work. Her transcripts are accurate and her turnaround time is almost unbelievably fast. She always meets or exceeds any deadline we give her. In addition, she is cheerful and a joy to work with...Without timely, quality transcription, the work of our office could not get done. I don't know what we would do without Mim. I recommend her without reservation.
-Shannon Page, Assistant Director, Regional Oral History Organization, University of California, Berkeley
Mim Eisenberg has consistently served my transcriptions well, meeting all agreed-upon delivery dates, alerting to items that would make either me or my clients appear less than professional, rendering very clear transcriptions with questionable elements clearly highlighted, and constructing word lists for confirmation or correction.... I have suffered at the hands of my own disorganization or that of non-professional transcriptionists. Mim has not let that happen again. At times she allows her own delight with words and information to come to play. Far more than a vendor, I feel I have a friendly but precise colleague in Mim.
-Ron O'Reilly, Stories Worth Repeating
It has been a pleasure working with you to transcribe the oral history I made with Professor Irving London. Your work is of the highest professional standard and was completed in record time. Should future opportunities arise, I will surely contact you to enlist your expertise.
-Irwin "Win" Arias, M.D., Senior Scientist, NICHD; Assistant to Director, Intramural Program, National Institutes of Health
Irving M. London, M.D., the founding chairman of the Department of Medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, was chosen in 1971 to design a new medical sciences program leading to a Harvard Medical School M.D. degree. The program, now called the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology (HST), has an interdisciplinary approach to biomedicine and has achieved numerous academic and research milestones.
Mim Eisenberg of WordCraft has been transcribing oral history interviews for the oral history program at Dartmouth College for more than a year. Her work product is exceptional: the turnaround time is quick, the transcription is accurate and detailed (including time marks for each inaudible word or phrase) and the word lists and grammar notations she provides for each interview are extremely helpful. WordCraft has become an important part of the workflow that we have in place to produce oral history collections for our Special Collections Library. We look forward to working with Mim for many years to come.

Editing and Proofreading
Just a quick note of sincere appreciation (and awestruck admiration!) for the outstanding proofreading job you did on my latest book, The Well-Fed Writer....You are thorough, methodical and amazingly detail-oriented. Your mastery of the English language, with all its finer points and nuances, is truly formidable.
-Peter Bowerman, author
In the production of my book, Work's New Age, this spring, I hired Mim Eisenberg for proofreading and editing. I was happy with her work, which greatly improved the consistency of the manuscript and eliminated many errors. She communicated especially well, giving reasons for her substantive changes, which informed me well. I am glad she worked with me, and I recommend her.
-James B. Huntington, author, Work's New Age: The End of Full Employment and What It Means to You
My debut book, Fireflies and Shooting Stars: The Tale of Enzo, was truly a labor of love. I needed to entrust the final proofreading to an expert. Mim was the perfect choice. Her incredibly prompt and accurate work made my book shine! Thank you, Mim, for your impeccable talent and kindness.
