Translation and Editing

Do you need another set of eyes on your writing?

I am available to edit or translate your:

  • article
  • book manuscript
  • dissertation
  • book proposal
  • cover letter
  • grant application
  • CV
  • creative nonfiction
  • museum or gallery text

I have wide-ranging experience editing texts by native and non-native English speakers. Besides correcting grammatical and syntactical errors and typos, I can address questions of style and content and help you with usage and conventions suited to different contexts. I can note the connotations and nuances of your word choice and offer various options for revising sentences when appropriate.

My goal is to produce the most polished version of your writing possible, maintaining your voice and keeping your audience in mind. The revision process can be as collaborative as you’d like: we can sit down to talk through proposed changes, or I can simply send you a finished product. I can edit your text in accordance with various style guides, including MLA and Chicago. I welcome projects of any size, from an email to a book-length project.

I also translate from Spanish to English. I have translated texts about literature, visual art, politics, and culture. I have experience with everything from Inquisition-era documents to recent writing on contemporary art, and I enjoy researching and becoming acquainted with new topics.
