I have over 17 years' publishing experience, working on a variety of monthly computing magazines. This means I am used to working to strict deadlines and am comfortable editing any type of copy, including technical articles.
I use both a Windows PC and a Mac, so can work with Microsoft Word, Adobe InDesign or plain text documents.
You can email me your document and I can correct it for you and send it back; or I can make suggestions for improvements, and you can make them yourself; or you can give me a print-out of your document, which I can mark up with suggestions and corrections. I'd be happy to discuss any other ways you would like to work, including visiting your place of work. I may need to charge travel expenses, depending on where you are based.
I charge up to £20 ($33) an hour. I can usually process around 4,000 words per hour.
