Service Description

It's all about working with and for you to produce the product you're looking for. I'm very conscientious when editing to keep the author's voice or style intact.

All work, whether article writing, proofreading, or editing, is double-checked. I have worked with APA, MLA, and Chicago styles and have guides on-hand to refer to. MS Word track changes will also be used upon request.

In addition, I offer proofreading and editing services. I pay attention to the details and you will receive a product with correct punctuation, spelling, and grammar. Besides American English, I have experience writing and proofreading to British English as well.

I also provide German-English / English-German translation for smaller projects. As stated above, I feel comfortable working with texts by non-native English speakers, whether they need simple proofing or complete overhauls.

If ever I need further clarification on a subject, I will do outside research to ensure that both you and I feel confident.
