Hello, my name is Lehyla. I am from the U.S., but I currently live in China. I have a Bachelor's in English Literature and I am some months away from a Master's in Chinese Literature. I am fluent in Mandarin and have experience in translating documents. My dream is to be a travel writer, but editing gets me by for now.

Service Description

I provide proofreading and editing for writers looking to enhance the structural, thematical, and grammatical quality of their written projects. I have a BA in English Literature with a focus in Creative Writing. I keep a blog that can be viewed at http://www.daytodaychina.blogspot.com. Although I can proofread any written document, I do specialize in those written by non-native English speakers. Recently I finished editing a 200-page book for an Eritrean colleague, which will be published early 2014. Aside from editing, with my background and interests, I also offer writing services.
I am currently studying Chinese Literature at Northeast Normal University in Changchun, China. I have been living in China for four years and am fluent in Mandarin Chinese. Along with editing services, I also offer translation services from Chinese to English.
