What I do

I copy-edit and proofread texts in British English, and have particular experience in academic texts (bachelor and masters dissertations, doctoral theses, journal articles and research proposals). For copy-editing and proofreading, I can work on-screen (MS Word with tracked changes, PDF, within a CMS, etc) or on paper using appropriate British Standards Institution (BSI) marks. You may like to read differences between proofreading and copy-editing.

I translate from Italian and Russian into British English, my mother tongue. I am advanced-level qualified in SDL TRados, and I can give discounts for repetitions and fuzzy matches. I also proofread texts that have been translated from these languages into English.

Transcription is the creation of a detailed written transcript from an audio file. I can transcribe English audio files, and can also provide a translate+transcribe service, whereby I create an English written translation of an Italian audio file.

If you have a specific need that I have not mentioned, I may be able to help you, or point you in the direction of a person who can, so do still contact me.
