We worked with Chris in Spanish and English. It was great being able to work with a copywriter who can work in two languages. Rather than relying on an additional translation company, we were able to create content in different languages that carried the same tone and sentiment, tailored to the culture of each country. We were also able to get existing English copy translated into Spanish, quickly and easily, safe in the knowledge that the key messages and objectives of the campaign would remain intact. We found Chris very warm, flexible and accommodating to work with. She made every effort to come back to us as quickly as possible while retaining a good quality of work. Being able to work just with one supplier meant that an already complex project to run smoother and more efficiently. We hope to use Chris again in the future.–Stevie Robinson, Project Manager, Caburn Hope.
Working with Chris on a series of Barcelona guides for Gogobot was a delight. She was professional yet creative, and timely in her work. I also felt she was able to convincingly inhabit different worlds, writing convincingly about Barcelona for green travel, business, and LGBT. I’d hire her again anytime I had a relevant assignment. –Julia Pond, Managing Editor, Gogobot.com
Chris’s stories are always well-reported, cleanly written, and submitted before deadline. She brings a pro knowledge of Europe—and especially Spain—to the table, as well as a well-seasoned traveler’s perspective. Her unique voice shines through in her pieces, yet she still effortlessly adapts to a publication’s style. —Danielle Walsh, Associate Editor, AFAR.com
As Guides Editor at AFAR Media I have assigned Chris numerous writing assignments, mainly travel guides. She is a strong and quick writer with good ideas, and is always conscientious, professional, and a pleasure to work with. I have no hesitation recommending her to other editors. —Nick Rowlands, Guides Editor, AFAR.com
I hired Chris to edit Eat Guides: Barcelona, a guidebook I wrote to food and drink in Barcelona, Spain. Because it was a guidebook, formatting was important in addition to grammar and style edits. Furthermore, parts of the guidebook contain Catalan and Spanish words, so it was useful that Chris is trilingual. Chris was able to help me with standard editing plus offer insights related to Catalan and Spanish food culture, all skills that improved the book. She delivered the project on time and was professional and easy to work with. I would certainly hire Chris again for future projects. —Regina Winkle-Bryan, Author of Eat Guides: Barcelona, Eat Guides
I’ve been delighted with the professional standard of articles that Chris has turned in. She is consistently creative in her approach, thorough in her coverage and true to her word. All in all, she makes my job as editor easy and enjoyable. —Julie Sheridan, Content Manager at Open House Group
Chris Ciolli’s travel writings allow our readers the chance to see sites and experience other cultures without leaving home. Her style is full of the wide-eyed wonder that comes from small-town Midwest America and typically honest! –Rebecca Holloway, Managing Editor, “The Tipton Times”
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Chris Ciolli at readlearnwrite.com. Her guest posts are always inspired writing which resonates with my readers. Chris has a seemingly endless supply of brilliant ideas which she routinely executes to perfection. I’d welcome her as a full-time contributor to the site, unfortunately, she’s just too prolific a writer involved in a number of other sites where she provides the same brilliant content. My hope is she continues to share some of her great ideas with the readers at readlearnwrite.com. –Brandon Monk, Read.Learn.Write
