I've been a professional editor, copy editor and proofreader for more than 20 years, working for individuals, NGOs, and companies ranging from small startups to global enterprises. I have experience in a wide variety of industries, including travel and hospitality, real estate, retail/e-commerce, healthcare, aerospace, finance, consumer software, e-learning and more. Content types I've edited include websites, sales and marketing materials, articles, emails, advertising copy, video scripts, press releases, grant proposals, research reports, product descriptions, biographies, memoirs and short stories.I'm originally from the United States. Now based in Portugal, I've also lived in Ecuador, Peru, New Zealand, England, Austria and Russia. I speak some Portuguese and Spanish, and have studied, in the past, Russian, French, Italian and German. Although I don't do professional translation now, I do edit content that’s been translated into English.My objective, and my talent, is to deliver clean, clear, error-free and engaging content that flows smoothly and gets its point across effectively. I'd love to help with your next project.
