Service Description

I'm an American living in central Transylvania. I've been here for 4 years providing English lessons, editing, proof reading, writing and translation services.

My I have a background in communications and marketing. My primary experience is working with text in the fiends of green living, gastronomy, sustainable agriculture, environment, conservation, travel/tourism, and rural and community development.

I am accustomed to working with people who speak English as a foreign language, though I edit for native English speakers as well. I can do translation from Romanian, Hungarian, and Italian into English - though it is usually more efficient for me to polish and fine-tune a rough translation. In this regard I am thorough and detail oriented.

I have experience writing editorials, how-to, recipes, cookbooks, newsletters, marketing, and informational pieces. I have edited a wide range of materials including business plans, short stories, recipes, academic writing, and marketing materials.

I am detail oriented, provide timely and professional service, and I am sensitive to each customer's unique needs.
