Service Description

I consider myself a highly trained and creative critical thinker and an efficient and detail-oriented editor with experience in editing academic texts for publication or presentation at international conferences. I have a very strong background in literature and the arts, with a special focus on how the humanities disciplines are changing due to the effects of globalization, thanks to my MA degree in Intercultural Humanities. I have very strong writing skills, and lean towards an academic style without being incomprehensible. Besides this, I can also read and speak Japanese at an intermediate level, Turkish at an upper-intermediate level, and German as a beginner. I lived in Japan and Germany for two years, and have lived in Istanbul for three. My knowledge of the aforementioned cultures also puts me at ease when writing about them .
