I have been editing professionally for seven years. I have experience editing online content, non-fiction books, including memoirs and text books, as well as editing fiction. My copy editing skills are thus highly adaptive, although I specialise in fiction, postgraduate academic level writing, and magazine-style writing.
I started in print magazines, for AMC Media in Taiwan, before progressing to large-scale language learning projects, all the time fostering my freelance editing opportunities. Most recently, this was with Enago, which largely focused on PhD-level and beyond academic papers, surely the highest level of complexity, particularly in topics far out of my field of expertise, like science. I never felt overwhelmed by such topic types. I have professionally edited technical writing and marketing content also, which again required topic flexibility.
Design and create materials for online IELTS courses, including videos and audio. The most relevant part of this is the articles, which are the same level of English as standard articles. This means that I have to be careful to be clear, which is a skill that applies to all writing, but don't have to deliberately make simpler English. It thus comes out rather like journalism.
