Listed in Proofreaders / Editors
I am a professional freelance proofreader specialising in working with clients for whom English is a second language.
I have passed, with a Merit, the Publishing Training Centre’s Basic Proofreading course. I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) and the Society for Young Publishers (SYP).
I can proofread on screen in Word and on PDFs. I can also proofread on paper using the British Standards Institution (BSI) proofreading symbols.
I also have a BA (Hons) degree in French and Spanish from the University of Hull.
With a background in French and Spanish studies, I am ideally placed to understand the complexities of making yourself understood, clearly and accurately, in a language other than your own.
For many years, I worked for an international bank and often edited documents for non-native speakers of English.
I also have a keen interest in travel and tourism.
I provide a polished, professional finish to your writing whether that be a manuscript, document, dissertation, personal statement or CV. I check for errors in spelling, punctuation and grammar, and address consistency with regards to layout and style.
I offer outstanding attention to detail. I have a friendly and approachable manner. I always follow the brief set, can work to a deadline and within budget.
