Editor and Translator
I make documents of all types impressive to all audiences, even the most educated, critical readers, by perfecting grammar, style, spelling, clarity and overall writing quality. I am familiar with the most commonly used style guides, including AP, APA, MLA, ASA, Chicago and Harvard. I also deliver translations of the highest quality in terms of accuracy, cultural context and linguistic nuances.
I am a native English speaker with a Ph.D. in comparative literature, an M.A. in French and a B.A. in French and political science. I have more than 20 years of experience in the U.S. publishing industry as a development editor, production editor, managing editor, copy editor, reviewer, author and coauthor. I have worked extensively on English-language books, encyclopedias, journals and websites. Italian is my heritage language, and in the area of French translations, I have worked as a translator for an Olympic bid committee.
I am seeking freelance editing and translation projects that require up to 10 hours of work per week on a short-term or ongoing basis.
