Ashok L.

Expert English editor (UK & US English)
   India
  |   Chennai, Tamil Nadu

Resume/C.V.

I have received 5 star feedback and repeat orders; top 5% in English Basic Skills (U.S. Version), top 30% in Email Etiquette and British vs. American English. I am a freelance editor and author with a wicked streak of humor/ humour (take your choice - UK or US).
The style of communication is as important as the message to be conveyed. Only an outstanding editor can change technical subjects from griping to gripping. For instance, Electronics made Simple by Henry Jacobowitz is a very popular book because the subject is explained in a simple and interesting manner.
Punctuation too, can change the entire meaning of a statement. For example, the same sentence can be punctuated to read either as: The teacher said, "Jane is a fool." (or) "The teacher," said Jane, "is a fool." (Meaning totally changes.)
Even a space matters. Compare “God is now here.” with “God is nowhere.” (Meaning changes diametrically.)
If you want top-notch editing in time, all the time, contact me.
