Editor and Transcriber in Santa Ana, California
As an editor, I specialize in enhancing your writing so that you sound like a more self-assured version of yourself. This is the kind of writing you would produce on a day when the weather is just how you like it and your focus, for once, does not need more focus. Growing up bilingual gave me an early appreciation of how people use language to communicate. In college, I paired my love of reading and writing with my interest in learning about people by double majoring in history and art history and taking on a joint minor in ancient religions and classical languages.
When editing a given work, I take both copyediting and proofreading into consideration. My rate is $5 per 250 words ($0.02 per word) or $25 per hour. I am also open to being paid per project.
My expertise is US English, but I can work in UK English as well. I am well versed in APA, CMOS, and MLA. Alternatively, I can follow an in-house style guide as long as you provide it.
You can send me an excerpt of your work (consisting of no more than 1,000 words) for a free sample edit. Work less than 1,000 words long does not qualify for a sample edit, but the same rate of $5 per 250 words applies.
As a transcriber, I've got a keen ear and can make out a variety of accents in English. My standard rate is $60 per audio hour of good-quality audio.
