Language editing

I offer language editing services for texts written by non-English speakers. I have extensive experience of revising texts both by speakers of Italian and of other European languages. I offer a straightforward revision service and if desired also recommendations on how to improve style and grammatical tutoring.

My philosophy:
When language editing, not only do I look for grammatical and syntax errors, but also keep an eye out for any incongruence in the text and interference from the mother tongue. Once again, it is vital to grasp the author’s intentions, and in the case of doubt, consult the writer.

Additional skills:

My experience of teaching English as a foreign language and knowledge of other European languages – German and French in particular – increase my awareness of the errors that may be encountered and what the author may be trying to say.
