Elizabeth Meyer zu Heringdorf - Editor

I'm an agile and experienced copy editor who can help make your technology, business, or academic writing the best that it can be!

Overview

I have over 14 years' experience proofreading and copy editing native and non-native English-language business, technology, and academic texts. I help make books, e-books, and doctoral dissertations elegantly simple and easy to read, whether they are about engineering, the Internet of Things, or the nineteenth-century slave trade. My enthusiastic clients include college professors, businesspeople, and technical writers all over the world; I work with direct clients, proofreading agencies, and publishing houses, including Pearson Education.

I excel at maintaining your personal voice and style while eliminating grammatical errors and content inconsistencies at many different levels. If you'd like an extensive copy edit, I can dig in and rewrite to ensure fluidity and ease of language. If you need a final polish, I can read through for typos, blips, and the odd turn of phrase that deftly needs a subtle rewrite. While I strictly adhere to deadlines, I'm easy to work with. And if your native language isn't English, I can ensure that your audience will never know!
