Ariane is immensely professional, knowledgeable and has a keen eye for detail. Her balanced approach towards historical interpretation created compelling discussion points as I moved towards a final draft. I was grateful for her sensitivity towards nuance, and the conundrums of transliteration. She was a joy to work with and hit deadlines with a trustworthy efficiency.

Sophy Roberts, author of The Lost Pianos of Siberia

‘We interviewed Dr Ariane Galy for our documentary series, ‘Wicked Inventions’. She was very knowledgeable across a wide and diverse range of subjects. It was a pleasure to work with her: she had prepared thoroughly and was easy to work with. She gave just the right level of detail in her answers, coming across with authority in an engaging way – perfect for television!’  James Fowler, Definition Media

When the time came to update my biography, the only person I knew to be capable of taking on such a huge task was Dr. Ariane Galy. She has done the most amazing work. She is an incredible professional, so intelligent, so cultivated, so patient, with so much human empathy. I was  utterly delighted with, and utterly grateful for, the work she did for me. I also asked her to write small essays about the paintings that have most touched her heart and she has written beautiful pieces, full of poetry and warmth. My respect and my admiration for her keeps growing daily. Thank you, Ariane! Cristina Rodriguez, Painter

‘History Box proofreading is an excellent, high quality service, which I can’t recommend highly enough. The fact that this is done by a highly qualified, professional historian makes it ever more valuable than simply a proofreading exercise. I recommend History Box to anyone who is looking for thorough, professional and insightful proofreading of their academic, or indeed any other, work.’
Dr Alexander Titov, Lecturer in Modern European History, Queen’s University Belfast

Ariane contributed a concise history of Russia for children to our website http://www.findoutaboutrussia.co.uk. This not only demonstrated her flexibility and good nature – she swallowed hard when asked to put all that information into two webpages, and make it interesting for 10 year olds – but also her professionalism. She was wonderful to work with: kept all her deadlines, produced interesting and colourful copy, was very patient with our requests, and good-humoured throughout. Very many thanks Ariane!’
Jenny Carr, Chairperson, The Scotland-Russia Forum
