I am Melanie @ ‘Take it as read’.
I’m all about the written word.
I can help you make perfect sense for maximum impact and optimal results.
I offer a complete writing service to businesses, authors and academics seeking to publish, including non-native English students with theses and dissertations to deliver.
I have over 20 years of experience working as an editor, proofreader and copywriter for large multinational corporations and smaller businesses within my marketing consultancy roles in the UK, France, Belgium and Germany.
My mother tongue is English but I also speak French and German.
I have a strong business background and have clients from all over the world and from many industries and business sectors including aviation, hospitality, food and beverage catering solutions, finance, EU institutions, IT and telecommunications.
I have an MBA (University of Lancaster), an MA in History (University of Birmingham), a BA (Hons) in French (University of Warwick), and a post-graduate diploma in International Marketing Management (Boston University, Brussels).
I have written and edited scripts for product videos and texts for corporate brochures, newsletters, website content, promotional materials, board reports, as well as academic articles.
I am a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
I also have an academic background and will publish my MA research in 2018.
I have a deep interest in history. I gained a Distinction for my MA. My dissertation focused on national and regional identity in Britain leading up to the First World War and the Cornish response to the outbreak of war in 1914.
I now live in West Sussex in the UK and Kirchberg in Luxembourg.
The service from Melanie was so great and fast as well as very helpful. Definitely worth five stars!
