Doreen Kruger – Editor

Competent and careful copyeditor with extensive experience editing a broad range of texts specialising in the humanities and social science.

Overview

I am an Advanced Professional Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading, specialising in copyediting the humanities and social science. But I have worked on, and am happy to consider, a wide range of texts - from the arcane to the mundane.


I am experienced, responsive, trustworthy and dependable. I can help make your text clear, concise, coherent and consistent and enable you to meet your intended readership, while at the time same respecting your author's voice. I will follow your brief, listen to your concerns and deliver your project on time.


I am happy to work with those who don't have English as a first language.

Doreen was very supportive throughout. I had never used a proof reading service before and she taught me a great deal. I will be using her again.
