* writing original content
* editing for spelling, grammar, content, style
* translation from French to English
I have been published in a couple of magazines, and you can access all those works through my portfolio. I tend to write with a wry sense of humour, but can easily tailor my style to what's needed, be it academic reports or product reviews. I have written numerous equipment reviews for various stores and magazines, as well as a handful of research reports and literature reviews. Currently I am putting together my official blog, so am becoming quite familiar with WordPress and SEO concepts and their application.
Most of my editing has been my own material, and I am a favourite with Adventura's Editor in Chief because she generally has nothing left to fix with my submissions. I am also currently editing my father's memoirs. English is his second language, and all his writing to date has been in scholarly journals, so there is plenty to do.
I am fluently multilingual, and have done a few translations from French to English: one for a website and one for a back-country guide book. I was taught Parisien French, but have lived the past 6 years in Ottawa-Gatineau, so am also familiar with le français québécois.
