Special interests:
My main interest is in editing non-native English. Many of my clients are non-native English speakers who have been commissioned to prepare reports for different Directorate-Generals in the European Commission. Most of the reports I edit/proofread are in the area of public policy issues, education, social and economic affairs. I also edit press releases and communications, as well as annual reports for corporate clients.
