Writing & Translation
Whatever your project — dissertation, thesis, journal article, response letter to reviewers, personal essay, proposal, research progress report for an active grant — I can help you make sure that your writing is clear and clean. I blend proofreading with personalized writing instruction. That is, I don’t just fix your documents; I give you feedback on your writing as well. And if yours is a field with which I am familiar, I am even happy to offer substantive comments!
As your copyeditor, I give your manuscripts my undivided attention. Working quickly and thoroughly, I will immediately recognize where you can rephrase things to make a stronger case. Furthermore, my observant, encouraging feedback will help you become aware of and eliminate weak spots in your own writing style so that you can strengthen your writing.
Your future prestige, opportunities, career stability, and salary all depend largely on your ability to articulate your ideas in the most professional way. The long-range dividends of submitting a successful journal article or grant proposal — and becoming a better writer — can hardly be measured.
For all of these reasons, you owe it to yourself to hire an academic copyeditor.
To date, my academic editing projects have covered a broad range of disciplines: family sociology, immigration, public health, statistical research methodology, education, philosophy, agricultural economics, labor economics, and even medicine. Don’t worry that your field is too technical — I’m versatile!
