My name is

Yasmin Binti Shamsudin

I am a medical student with a PhD. I founded the company YS Consulting in 2016, during my graduate studies. At that time, I was writing and publishing scientific articles while also proofreading and editing scientific articles, theses and degree projects for friends and co-workers, written in Swedish and English. Being multilingual, I have years of experience in translating between Swedish and English.

After taking a class in scientific writing at Uppsala University, I learned that there are lots of little secrets about how scientific manuscripts should be written. When friends told me that they had never learned how to write scientific papers and were frustrated that their manuscripts kept getting rejected, I decided to create courses and workshops to teach more people how to write more clearly, and increase their impact.

All of these experiences come together in YS Consulting. We now offer proofreading and editing services, translations, and courses, seminars, and workshops in how to write scientific articles. Our clients come from universities and research institutes around the world, including in Europe, Asia, and North America.
