    Editor, Writer, FR-EN Translator

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 10

    My facility with words derives from a love of literature and a background in French, teaching English, and editing. Over the past 7 years, I've had the opportunity to work with a variety of texts, from academic papers to blogs to web content to novels, and various style guides, including AP, APA, MLA, and Chicago. Though my heart lies in fiction, I'm equally at home with non-fiction; my particular interest areas include sociology, anthropology, psychology, environmental issues, healthy living, nutrition, women's studies, feminist theory, queer theory, critical theory, and critical race theory. However, I welcome all types of texts. Let me help make your pen indeed mightier than the sword, whether it is simply proofreading for small errors or copy editing/line editing to improve structure, flow, word choice, clarity, coherence, and the like. With me, your texts and documents are in good hands.

    Delivering clear, compelling content

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Portfolio: 8

    Why take chances with your written content? I've spent my working life improving content -- in traditional print and online -- and can do that with yours. In his excellent new book about self-publishing called "APE," entrepreneur extraordinaire Guy Kawasaki says hiring a top-notch professional editor is essential. I can tighten your nuts and bolts via correct language and grammar and also suggest structural fixes. Beyond simple proofreading, my writing, editing and webinar services help clients who struggle with content reach their target audiences with sharp, meaningful and relevant information. Whether it’s your blog, website, newsletter, book, social media accounts or more, getting to the point and conveying simply and strong what you do or offer is essential. That’s where I come in. If I can't be of service, I may know others who can meet your needs. After all, creating and fostering relationships -- and giving back -- is a cornerstone of conducting business today.

    Spain - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 28

    Writer and translator, in: French, English & Spanish. “Fast. Easy. Professional. Hire Lea for your translation needs today!” “Fantastic translator, quick and well translated. will use again.” As a compulsive perfectionist, I am thoroughly focused while working, if research needs to be done, I will dig deep! -- it helps to understand where to -- If you want quality content but also fun/original/factual writing, that's for me! As a translator I am extremely precise and yet, flexible enough to be creative, so no matter which language is on focus, it will always make sense for the person who is reading it. Translation is about understanding other cultures, to write the content in a way that actually talks to the interested and in that sense, it's about writing FOR the reader, while maintaining his interest from the beginning to the very...very last word. -- What else?

    Expert for translations, editing and ghostwriting

    United Kingdom - Last active: 3 days ago - Portfolio: 25

    I am a German native speaker, but have been living in Kent/England for 25 years. I graduated from Bonn University in 1984 with an MA-equivalent (First State Exam) after studying English, French and German language and literature and teaching first-year-students during my final terms. I spent the 1978/9 winter term at Edinburgh University where I did a course about systemic grammar and the teaching of literature. I learned that the interpretation of poetry can be based on a matter-of-fact analysis of the structure and how it deviates from ordinary language. This made teaching poetry much easier and clearer, accessible even to sceptics who insisted that interpreting poetry was a matter of taste. After 18 months at the Wiesbaden Teacher Training College I got my teaching qualification (Second State Exam)and decided to teach abroad. With my experience in teaching A-level German I feel well equipped to tackle most translations from English to German or vice versa.
