CV (Curriculum Vitae) / Résumé
I have worked for many organisations including several major book publishers. With a partner who is a highly qualified and skilled copy editor, I have learned to proofread to professional standards and have over twenty years experience doing so as well as typesetting and designing. I can also write copy in any 'voice' required and can rewrite copy for non-native speakers. I take enormous pride in my work and always aim to produce a perfect end result, no matter how much extra work is involved. I only ever desire satisfied clients.
