Service Description

Academic editing - conference papers, journal articles, teaching materials, job letters, CVs. I have published as well as presented my work at conferences, so I understand how those processes work. I also have experience of working as a writing tutor, and have received prizes for my own writing.

Before starting on my doctorate, I worked for some time as a translator, so I can also help you with translation: Finnish-English-Finnish, Swedish-English-Swedish, Finnish-Swedish-Finnish, Spanish-English/Swedish/Finnish, Basque-English/Swedish/Finnish.

I also have a background in computer science and have recently worked on iPhone and Android apps through an HTML5/JavaScript interface (PhoneGap).
