Service Description

I am a freelance writer, translator and editor from the UK with over ten years' experience in the publishing industry and top qualifications from the Publishing Training Centre. I have lived abroad for over eight years, in France and Spain, and acted as translator and interpreter for a wide range of companies and individuals.


CORRECTION
This service applies only to the text and is particularly appropriate for a document written by a non-native English speaker. I will check for spelling and grammatical errors, inconsistencies and unclear meanings.

PROOFREADING
This service is for documents that have been formatted for print or online publishing. As well as correcting any errors, as outlined above, I will also check for stylistic inconsistencies: irregular page alignment, bad word breaks, erratic font use etc.

COPY-EDITING
The main content of your document is written; the basic structure is complete, but you are not sure that the style is giving the right message. This service works in conjunction with you, providing feedback and suggestions for how to improve your document.

COPY-WRITING
You provide the content, I provide the style!

TRANSCRIPTION
I will transcribe your audio files accurately and efficiently, providing you with a well-presented document in the format specified. This service can also be combined with translation, converting French audio files into an English transcription.

TRANSLATION & CHECKING TRANSLATIONS
