    Editor, Writer, FR-EN Translator

    United States - Last active: 21 hours 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.

    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.
