Ine De Baerdemaeker - Editor

Ghent, Belgium

Let me nurture your manuscript, polish it until it sparkles, and transform it into a thing of beauty – a joy forever.

Overview

Since obtaining my Master's degree in English Linguistics and Literature, I have edited close to 15 books (fiction and non-fiction). 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 found my own editing company.

I get lots of satisfaction out of making a text as good as it can be. Therefore, 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. 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.
