Overview

I am an American citizen currently living in Hanoi, Vietnam where I work as an English language editor for two national online newspapers, a major publishing house, and a large IT corporation. I have over 15 years of experience editing and proofreading a wide range of documents including website content, books, articles, audit reports, resumes, development NGO reports, dissertations and advertisements. My background is in fine art and culture and I would particularly welcome work related to those fields.

Service Description

I offer careful editing, proofreading and copy writing services for a wide range of documents at a reasonable price. I specialize in editing English translations of documents and books originally written in foreign languages, particularly Vietnamese and other Asian languages.

I will edit:
Newspaper and magazine articles
Resumes and cover letters
Reports, newsletters, and documents
Academic dissertations
Advertising and website content
Books
Instruction manuals
English language texts that need a native speaker's eye

I can edit both American and British English and follow specific formats as required.

I currently live in Vietnam, which is 11-12 hours ahead of the USA and 6 hours ahead of Europe so I can edit short texts overnight for customers in those areas.
