Service Description

My job experience includes working in the most prestigious newspaper in Argentina, La Nación, as well as in different magazines, such as Rolling Stone, BeGlam, Living, Lugares, Rumbos, among other. The task performed was the proofreading and the copy-editing in Spanish and in English of different articles (grammar, punctuation, spelling, style, semantics, terminology, jargon, data check, coherence and cohesion) while working side by side with authors, journalists and editors to get the best quality text, giving recommendations and suggestions. I also took part in several projects for publishing companies and communication agencies, and I worked for individual authors of books too. Furthermore, I used to work in a subtitling company, Palmera Record, both as a translator (English-Neutral Spanish) and a proofreader. My aim is to join a team where I could apply my knowledge and skills to continue my development and growth, both personally and professionally.
