    Corporate Profile

    Corporate History

    Cambridge Language Consultants specialises in providing services pertaining to English language. We originally incorporated in Cambridge, England in 1993 as Cambridge ESP Consultants, with a view to serving large corporations and banks. At that time our area of operation was mainly South Korea. In 1999, we changed our name and introduced a modified set of services, geared towards individuals in the academic and corporate environments who require specialised, quality, and reliable language services.

    We are now a truly international organisation. We provide a worldwide editing and consulting service, with experienced editors drawn from a number of English-speaking countries.


    Our consultants are all highly qualified, holding a PhD in an appropriate discipline. All have functioned effectively in the academic and corporate worlds and have vast experience of proofreading and editing documents in a wide variety of subjects.

    The Owner, Steve Mitchell, is a civil engineer and an earth/environmental scientist. In 1998 he gained a PhD from the University of Birmingham in the field of sediment transport in estuaries. After that he worked for a short time as a consulting engineer and scientist before taking up a permanent post as a lecturer at the University of Brighton, then at London South Bank University. He is the lead author of over 30 papers in the field of environmental and earth sciences, and is a member of the editorial board of Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science, also acting as a reviewer for journal papers in this and other journals. He is a Chartered engineer and a member of the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management. He currently does research in and lectures on estuarine science, sustainability, and the relationships between business and finance and engineering.

    The Executive Director, Chris Wright, is a former Fulbright Scholar and Carnegie Scholar. He has an MA (Hons.) from St. Andrews University, an MA in Philosophy (specialising in philosophy of science) from Pittsburgh University, and a Ph.D. from the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at Cambridge University. He has taught Philosophy as a Teaching Fellow at Pittsburgh University, a Supervisor at Cambridge University, and a Lecturer at Anglia University. In addition, he has given seminars on Wittgenstein and Nietzsche at Yonsei, Ewha, and Korea Universities in South Korea. He founded Cambridge Language Consultants in 1993 and has many years' experience of designing language programmes, teaching English, proofreading, and editing in Asia. He is a Member of the Pali Text Society. His research focuses on interpreting the earliest recorded teachings of the Buddha, which requires attention to certain topics in contemporary moral philosophy: virtue theory, vices, emotions, the nature of the self, and various other issues involving cognition, motivation, and affect. He is also interested in the nature of money and the economic consequences of different money systems. His leisure interests include Chinese painting, cycling, growing his own vegetables, and caring for his cats and guinea pigs.

Her editing expertise covers the earth sciences in general.

    Gareth Thomas has a BSc in Chemistry, an MSc in Analytical Chemistry, a PhD in Environmental Chemistry, and over 16 years of experience as an academic researcher in the field of environmental chemistry and toxicology.
