Bio

I am an English Native Speaker with an M.A. in English Literature and Language from St Andrews University (Scotland) and M.B.A from Edinburgh University (Scotland).

I currently work as a freelance proofreader/editor/quality controller. I receive multiple projects from translation agencies and private commissions - both linguistic (pol>eng) and non-linguistic - and need to either edit or quality control them. I am thorough and accurate in my work and am very familiar with working to and meeting project deadlines. I also work with on-line translation/editing systems for both RR Donnelley (Spain/UK/Hong Kong/Japan) and Transperfect (US/UK). I do occasional translation work (pol>eng) for clients e.g. Translated (Rome, Italy) in MateCat, TRM Kft (Budapest, Hungary).

Academic dissertations/books
I have proofread some PhD/professorial dissertations in preparation for their being published. The biggest was a project that involved three intensive rounds of proofreading for a dissertation (starting off as a below quality translation from Polish to English) that was published by Cambridge University Press. This involved random spot checks of selected pages for errors. The published book can be viewed here:
