Proofreading & Copy editing
I work to improve your documents by eliminating grammar problems and inconsistencies. I ensure that your words flow smoothly and that your text speaks to your target audience. I can work within any style guide specific to your needs, including but not limited to the Chicago Manual of Style (CMoS), The Canadian Style, Associated Press Style (AP), and American Psychological Association (APA).
My clients include university professors, researchers, education departments and organizations, professional journalists, government organizations, and novice writers. I have edited Web content, technical journals, theses, press releases, and professional evaluations. My experience spans various fields including education, technology, government policies, cybersecurity, health and lifestyle, business, and nonfiction content.
Web Editing & Writing
Creating content for the Web requires a different approach to that of materials developed for print. Digital content is accessed by various audiences through various types of technology, and I am trained in recognizing the possibilities of the Web and how the audience interacts with it. I integrate my knowledge about keywords and search engine optimization (SEO) to ensure that your blog post, article, and multimedia brand content effectively reaches your target audience.
My experience with web content includes copy editing websites for Canadian government agencies, preparing content for professional educators, and ghostwriting and structural editing of blog posts for professionals in the technology sector. I am the managing editor of both the French-language site of a Canadian health and lifestyle magazine and a blog for editing professionals in British Columbia.
As a French Immersion teacher and with native fluency in French, English, Spanish, and Polish, I offer translation services to help your content engage a wider audience. If you are seeking to have your content or documents translated from English to French, or vice versa, please contact me to discuss your needs. If you are interested in other language pairs, please specify these in your message.
