I tested in the top 5% in English Proofreading.
I am an editor specializing in content for the web with a focus on finance, marketing, and the arts. I have a lot of practice with non-native authors, transforming their sometimes non-idiomatic writing into a polished and natural-sounding prose.
Before going freelance, I worked in the online publishing industry, carrying out content creation, editing and functionality testing of web-based textbooks and course modules in various fields. I have also worked for a corporate law firm writing documents for attorneys. My degree is in English literature, so I am a bit of a grammar geek. Finally, I am bilingual in English and Bulgarian, and fluent in Spanish.
Editing projects I am interested in: finance, social sciences, health, travel, arts and entertainment, non-profit, web content, magazines, academic journals, short stories.
Thank you for checking out my profile!
I work with Track Changes in MS Word or Google Drive, or proofing marks in Adobe Acrobat. I have experience with WordPress and custom content management systems. Any other method suggested by the client is fine too.
In terms of style guidelines, I can adapt to the standard guides (Chicago, AP, MLA) or use client specifications.
I am flexible when it comes to client communication: I can check in with the client often or work independently and figure things out on my own--just let me know what you prefer.
