    Part-time free-lancer with a college degree. Thirty-year administrative government employee, thankfully retired, still looking for challenges on a short-term basis. Particularly interested in assisting foreigners with translating material into American English...I've seen SO many minor errors which could have been easily corrected. Have hosted 11 foreign exchange students, so I have a variety of contacts to assist with translations. Generally I am willing to offer a 'test-drive' to demonstrate my skills and speed. Thank you for your consideration!  less

    My English talents were developed through wide-ranging reading and university study. I love turning awkward, cluttered writing into clear, engaging prose. My proofreader side delights in picking through documents, looking for that tricky O masquerading as a 0 in your data. I've worked in the media localization industry and edited, proofread, and formatted English master files for translators. I am familiar with the major style guides, and I can readily adapt to a client’s stylistic preferences. I use either MS Word with track changes or Google Docs: your choice. I'm also a volunteer who makes e-books for Project Gutenberg.  less
