Molly Shih

Prose Perfect was founded and is run by Molly Shih. 

With varied experience in a range of service-oriented industries, Molly combines a verve for networking and collaboration with the rare skill of being able to get a deep understanding of clients’ expectations and needs. The idea of guanxi sums up her approach to business, and Prose Perfect’s too: it’s about establishing mutually beneficial and lasting relationships, rather than simply providing a service. Molly believes that a return to a more personal, less automated way of doing things is long overdue. She oversees strategy, our associates’ network, and collaborative initiatives.

Our associates network

We maintain a wide network of associates.

Our philosophy is that work of the best quality – whether editing, writing, or translation – requires close familiarity with the material being worked on. The world is changing more rapidly than ever before, andour language is reflecting this. To ensure that your communications are getting the results you want, you need someone who is up to speed with these developments. For this reason, we collaborate with people who are qualified and experienced in your field. This renders benefits not only in respect of the clarity of the writing, but also means you get contributions regarding your ideas and content from people who really know the area. General-purpose editors, writers and translators simply can’t provide work like this; with us, it comes standard.
