Professional practices Ann Sumwalt endorses's Professional Guidelines.

Professionally accredited American Journalist, Copy Editor and Translator specializing in Finance, Corporate Communications and Marketing, IT, Telecommunications and Engineering 

Drawing upon more than a decade of newspaper and magazine experience in France and the US, I have a knack for taking very complex texts and refining them into readily readable – and ready-to-publish – articles.

Excellent project management skills -- from brainstorming, scheduling, follow through and ensuring tight team deadlines are met.

Extensive project history international presentations and marketing materials, annual reports, investor information, financial and real estate purchase contracts and international requests for tenders. Some clients I have worked for include: Air France - La Poste - La Compagnie Financiere Edmond de Rothschild - Tunisia Telecom, Algeria Telecom- Bombardier - Nestle - L'Oreal Paris - Dessange salons
