Update January, 2019

I work to ensure that information, ideas, and feelings communicated in writing are successfully conveyed or shared between human beings.

I specialize in translating, proofreading, post-editing:

  • Materials in social sciences, business, medical, marketing subjects
  • Materials that vary in length from a few hundred words to book-length publications

This involves any or all of the following steps:

  • Asking questions about the purposes and processes you have in mind
  • Researching background information about your company/vision and your target audience
  • Translating texts
  • Proofreading for accuracy, meaning, fluency, style, grammar, spelling, terminology, consistency, formatting and visual aspects
  • Localizing necessary aspects
  • Editing for cultural aspects
  • Content editing as needed or requested
