Freelance Writer, Proofreader, and Translator
I am an English-speaking freelance writer based out of Berlin with experience writing columns and articles on art, cultural events, politics, business, and economics. As a former events planner and organizer at an independent bookstore, I also became skilled at composing business newsletters and advertising copy. My interdisciplinary background has allowed me to develop a flexible and multi-faceted approach to writing, as well as a general enthusiasm for just about everything, and I am open to accepting assignments on a wide variety of topics.
I have also worked as a freelance proofreader for several years. My previous contracts have included academic works intended for publication and consultancy reports submitted to the European Commission. I have a keen attention to detail and a compulsive need for grammatical correctness which make me a thorough and assiduous proofreader. Due to my background in teaching English as a Second Language, I am particularly well skilled in proofreading documents either translated into English or written by non-native English speakers.
In addition to my work in the English language, I have a Bachelor's degree in French Literature and have completed college coursework in French translation. I was awarded the Diplome de Francais d'Affaires with the highest mark and have studied Literature and Philosophy at L'Universite du Paris III and L'Institut Catholique de Paris.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, requests, or ideas you may have. I am happy to provide references and proofreading or writing samples upon request. I look forward to working with you!
