I specialise in editing non-native English for both students and academics and have regular clients at Durham University, the University of Neuchâtel in Switzerland and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. I do a lot of editing of journal papers for SAGE Publications (many of which are non-native English) through a publishing project management company.
I can mark up hard copy and on screen (using either Track Changes or pdf mark up tools). I have both a PC and laptop with Adobe Acrobat XI reader, PDF-XChange viewer, unzipping software and PerfectIt editing software installed.
I have worked on fiction and nonfiction titles, children's books, travel guides, journal papers, magazines, essays, theses and dissertations. In addition, I have particular experience in dealing with multi-author volumes, and pre-submission editing of such manuscripts, and reference checking are particular specialities.
Subjects of particular interest for proofreading/copy-editing are as follows: library and information studies, social and economic history, local history, archaeology, business and manufacturing, all areas of hazard, risk and resilience (including security, technology, health, food, floods, landslides and volcanoes), geography, politics and international relations, education, travel and tourism, walking (over thirty years of experience in devising walk routes, leading group walks and walking intensively throughout the UK), cycling, wildlife (particularly birdwatching), flora and fauna, gardening, cookery, handicrafts (particularly knitting, crocheting and cross-stitch), folk music, theatre and Northern England (I spent nine years working for the local regional development agency and have a great deal of interest in local affairs).
