Service Description

My strength is substantive editing, more than merely proofreading or even copyediting (that's one word, not two, spelled correctly). Many authors have told me that it's the questions that I ask them, the inconsistencies that I point out, and the things that I ask them to clarify or be more specific about that are what sets me apart and helps them far more than routine corrections. I'm accustomed to working with subject-matter experts (SMEs) who are not native English speakers and making their writing clear and correct for American readers. I've edited many technical how-to articles by Indian and Chinese authors, as well as others from all over the world.

Please note: I choose not to make my phone number public to prevent marketing robocalls. I'll gladly provide it when I'm working for you, of course.
