    I am a freelance copy editor and proofreader. I am presently engaged in ongoing work for Grammarly.com, which keeps my proofreading skills honed! I have also worked with book length fiction and non-fiction, copy editing to Chicago Manual of Style standards. I have proofread a variety of media, from print marketing materials to app UI texts. One of my favorite freelance projects involved copy editing and formatting an article for submission and publication in an academic journal. In the past, I worked on annotation projects for a newspaper database in Australia, where my attention to detail served both my client and myself well. My goal is to establish long term relationships with a few clients who are in need of high quality affordable copy editing and/or proofreading of their written material, whatever the audience or format. I am constantly expanding my range of skills and am eager to take on new challenges. I am currently enrolled in the American Society of Indexers training course, and am a member in good standing of that society. It is my hope to offer web and book indexing services in the near future.  less

I've worked on book-length manuscripts on a variety of nonfiction subjects for publishers in the U.S., and I'm familiar with Chicago, APA, and AMA styles. I've been freelancing for the last 5 years since moving to France, where I specialized in teaching English as a foreign language and editing English documents for non-native speakers. Having rubbed elbows with speakers of the other Englishes of the world in international Grenoble, I can easily adapt spelling, vocabulary, and punctuation for your intended audience (see my portfolio for Australian and Swedish examples). I have a keen eye for errors and a passion for making text clean and easy to read. I can vary my revision to suit your needs--I've done everything from surface-level proofreading to light translation and grammar interventions to reordering sentences and paragraphs for optimal flow. I'd love to make your writing sparkle! Please feel free to contact me for further examples of my work.  less

    Over the past several years I have worked on a variety of creative and technical projects. I have composed various technical documents including, desktop aids, task specific procedures, policy guides, and end user training documents. I have experience in banking and engineering industries, but would like to gain experience in others. Of course, I have expert knowledge in the requisite style manuals, and a keen understanding of editing/gapping procedures. Additionally, I have experience writing for creative and academic projects. My main skills lie in writing persuasively, pacing, and editing/proofreading. The subject matter is of little consequence as long as the proper tone is used when conveying an idea or when telling a story. When composing any creative project I try to appeal to the reader’s logos and pathos. Appealing to psychology is the best way to make any piece convincing and memorable. I am interested in utilizing my creative skills for your next project.  less

    I have a BA honours degree in French and I have lived much of my life in France. I am fluent in both written and spoken French. I am an experienced and versatile French - English and English-French translator. As a translator, I deliver accuracy as well as text that flows idiomatically. I have translated a wide range of subjects: websites, legal, and medical documents, audits, marketing and publicity material, academic essays and articles, as well as biography and fiction. I have passed (with merit) The Basic Proofreading Distance Learning Course offered by The Publishing Training Centre, London, UK,and also have proofreading certificates from the Society of Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), London, of which I am an associate. I am meticulous in my work as a proofreader. As well as checking for grammatical errors, word usage, inconsistencies, and spelling and typographical errors, I know the importance of cross-checking text notes, footnotes, references, and bibliography. I make sure that illustrations and figures and charts are correctly placed and that chapter and page headings, margins, line spacing, font, and page numbers are consistent with the style chosen. I might sometimes make a suggestion, but I never alter a text, unless I am asked to do a substantial edit.  less
