Service Description

Languages and Areas of Expertise
I am a native American English-speaking copy editor and proofreader. I am also versed in British English, can Canadianize text written in American English, and can tweak text to cater to a wider international audience. In addition to English, I have studied Russian, Spanish, and Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian (BHS, or the Central South Slavic diasystem). My knowledge of word origins and the appropriateness of certain words in specific geographic locations is top notch.

Experience in Formats
My editing experience includes electronic editing through MSWord's track changes feature, PDF files, OCR with Abbyy Finereader, as well as hard-copy editing.

My Experience
I have edited for first-time authors, publishing houses, businesses, non-profit security firms, major news organizations, and have even tutored students who were seeking to improve their writing skills. I have edited full-length books (nonfiction), insurance manuals, news articles, in-depth world event analyses, how-to books, Web site copy, magazine copy, technical documents, academic works, and yes, even a work or two of fiction; although the majority of my work has been with non-fiction.

My Specialties
My specialties are non-fiction and technical copy, world events,international relations, word origins, quick turnaround; and rewrite.

Other Work History
Prior to copy editing and proofreading, I spent seven years supervising half of the production planning and distribution department...
