Since obtaining my Master's degree in English Linguistics and Literature, I have edited close to 15 books (fiction and nonfiction). I started my career as an editor at a literary publishing house, where I gained lots of experience and found out how much I enjoy editing other people's work. Several jobs later, I decided to go my own way and founded my own editing company.
I get lots of satisfaction out of making a text as good as it can be and I love helping authors to achieve their goal of publishing a great book. There is nothing more frustrating than great content not getting the acknowledgment it deserves because the message doesn't come across clearly enough; I'm here to prevent that from happening.
This is what some of the people I have worked with say about me:
"Ine's professionalism is only matched by her mastery of English and her ability to bring out the essence of the author's work. She's reliable, fun to work with, and a consistent provider of high-quality work."
- Haris Ioannides, owner of Armida Publications
"Ine's editing and communication skills are outstanding, and her insights keen. As a professional freelance writer, I work with multiple editors each year. Ine stands out as one of the best I have worked with."
- Jenny Benjamin, author of This Most Amazing
"Ine De Baerdemaeker is a highly experienced editor whose work is characterised by absolute technical proficiency and – equally important – an intelligent and sensitive grasp of the style and substance of a given text. She can make a significant contribution to the clarity, elegance, and impact of different kinds of prose, and I believe that writers will benefit from her creative collaboration."
- Kevin Sullivan, author of Out of the West
"I've worked with Ine on several projects, and I'm happy with the consistent quality. My book wouldn't have been the same without her. She offers a personal service, from emails to Skype."
- Jon Nastor, author of Hack the Entrepreneur
I recently founded my own editing and translation agency. I spend a lot of time working with entrepreneurs who are publishing books in their field of expertise, such as entrepreneurialism, coaching, career advice, accounting, etc. However, I also help authors of fiction with their manuscripts, which is something I absolutely love doing.
At this literary publishing house in Cyprus, I was responsible for selecting manuscripts for publication, discussing the manuscript with the author, proofreading and editing works of fiction, and translating a work of non-fiction into English.
