Service Description

I am a qualified and experienced language and communication practitioner who is currently offering my services on a freelance basis (for agencies, companies as well as individuals). My experience lies mostly in academic writing and business communications and the fields I specialise in are arts, humanities, social sciences (including economics and education), marketing research and business. I also have experience in working with technical texts. My practical experience, gained from completing projects for clients and practical training gained via my studies and courses that I have attended, combined with my strong theoretical background in languages, translation and editing studies ensures that I can complete each assignment with the necessary knowledge and expertise. I can ensure that your text is communicative, stylistically appropriate, free of errors, and well rounded off. I can also guide you to be the best writer you can be. Besides working with texts, I can also be contacted to present workshops and train writers and language practitioners. I am currently teaching academic literacy (writing and reading) as well as editing methodology at the University of Stellenbosch and have years of experience in consulting with students and staff on their academic writing.

The services I currently offer are: Editing • Proofreading • Translation • Revision • Writing • Research • Lecturing • Training • Consulting
