FOR PUBLISHERS

My core services:
  • manuscript preparation
  • copy-editing
  • proofreading
  • artbrief / recording script compilation
  • audio / video checks.

Typically, I edit using track changes in Microsoft Word, or mark up on PDF using Adobe tools or BSI proofreading stamps.

Skills and experience

Having worked inhouse at Oxford University Press for seven years in the ELT (English Language Teaching) division, I appreciate the processes (and time pressures) often associated with such projects.

My speciality is material for Secondary and Adult learners of English, especially textbooks featuring complex layouts with integrated text and artwork. I can help at any stage of production, from templating manuscripts in Microsoft Word to final PDF checks.

I also speak Spanish and actively maintain my language skill level.

In addition to ELT, I enjoy working on a wide range of non-fiction topics across the arts and humanities, particularly modern languages and decorative arts.
