    "Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten" – Gucci Family Motto. Although my translation abilities include Dutch, Afrikaans, Germanic, French and Welsh language pairs, these are not principally promoted as my primary function and objective is to transform formal and academic English into a globally understandable, readable, taut, grammatically correct, and acceptable style of English while maintaining an understanding of the need and place for using of localized vernacular. Make your literary task easier by taking advantage of the skills of a TRUE Native English specialist (born, bred, and educated in the homeland of the English language – perhaps the reason it is called English because it was invented (developed) in England), who has spent a lifetime developing, cultivating and updating his literary competence in many far-flung parts of globe becoming familiar with the language in all its flavours (including US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, East Africa, and points between) and developing skills in editing and proofreading (Chicago / Oxford / MLA / APA 5 / APA 6 / AMS / IEEE / Harvard / Vancouver / Elsevier styles, and plain, old-fashioned Queens English, among others). Corrected output can be returned in MS Word format (with "track changes", sidebar comments and advice) for all changes, or in Latex typeset format with native raw code and PDF output depending on the client's choice. All house style requirements are strictly adhered to in either case. Citing and language are in accordance with accepted modern style standards. My core competence lies in taking a literary product or service then polishing until it shines so you can see your reflection, and these services are offered to help clients effectively and efficiently produce an ideal "final product". I am currently seeking opportunities where my high competence in written / spoken English (all varieties), multifaceted business skills, and extensive experience with current communication facilities could be used for mutual benefit.

    I'm a professional freelance proofreader/copyeditor with three years of editing experience and excellent feedback from all my clients. I am a native English speaker with excellent spelling, grammar, and attention to detail. I believe that tone and euphony are two of the most important things in any written work: clumsy, awkward writing and uneven diction can ruin the impact of even the most serious subject matter. In recent years, I have also developed my skills as a programmer. I am familiar with a number of languages, including Visual Basic, ActionScript 3, and Haxe, though I am most comfortable with programming in Python.  less

    I put your ideas into words. A writer writes, and a professional writer writes with the client in mind. I've written professionally for years in many fields from the technical to the imaginative. Whether I'm writing or editing an e-book, creating a manual, revising or ghostwriting your novel, or even posting to a blog I keep one thing in mind: Presenting your ideas to the reader. My job is to write transparently; to use words so that the reader only notices what I'm saying, not how I'm saying it. I'm there to be a bridge between your thoughts and the reader's mind.  less
