Proofreading and editing

10


10 per unit - Virtual OK

I will proofread your non-fiction text (choice of British/US spelling) and will edit it for clarity providing tracked changes and comments. I specialise/specialize in scientific texts but find that most of the texts excluding fiction benefit from a no-nonsense approach.

Training & Qualifications


I have 20+ years of studying and working in academia that involved a lot of writing and editing of texts. I am a published author of academic, industry and popular science texts in print and on-line media. I even won an award for a best popular science text from a Russsian web-site.

Availability & Preferences


Depends on the workload, just enquire.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

I like the idea of new sharing economy made easy by Internet. As most of us getting poorer, exchanging services directly allows to bypass greedy middlemen.
