Editing

 

Copyediting, proofreading, linguistic revision, optimization

I provide meticulous editing of English texts. In addition to correcting any errors in grammar, spelling or syntax, I can enhance the clarity, accuracy and flow of your documents. With my background as a writer and journalist, I can help make your message more compelling and, ultimately, more effective.

Working as translator and editor for over 20 years, I also have extensive experience editing texts that have been translated from French into English. I not only make sure the English text remains faithful to the original French, but also that it avoids French-language patterns of speech so that the final product is a polished adaptation—and not a literal translation.

Do you need a keen eye to look over your English documents? Contact me for an estimate.

Thank goodness we had Eve with us from the start on our collegial student books and teacher’s guides. She was an important member of our team who helped contribute to the success of the project. Eve was flexible, motivated, and thorough. She took risks, but at the same time was not afraid to ask questions. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Eve.
