    Proofreader, Editor

    Canada - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 4

    My English talents were developed through wide-ranging reading and university study. I love turning awkward, cluttered writing into clear, engaging prose. My proofreader side delights in picking through documents, looking for that tricky O masquerading as a 0 in your data. I've worked in the media localization industry and edited, proofread, and formatted English master files for translators. I am familiar with the major style guides, and I can readily adapt to a client’s stylistic preferences. I use either MS Word with track changes or Google Docs: your choice. I'm also a volunteer who makes e-books for Project Gutenberg.
