JMG Oct 14

Skills: copy-editing, proofreading, project management

Subjects: education, especially French, German, Italian, English

Types of publication: textbooks, workbooks, audio, multi-component courses; university and business prospectuses, reports and brochures of all kinds

About me:  I have over 25 years’ experience of freelance editorial work. My initial training came from working for two London language-learning specialist publishers: BBC Languages and Mary Glasgow Publications. Since going freelance in 1993, I’ve worked continuously on MFL projects for major UK educational publishers such as CUP, HarperCollins, Hodder, OUP and Pearson. To give examples, I work on first draft manuscripts discussing the content with authors at the development edit stage; I work with the production team to copyedit the material and assess images, audio scripts and teacher’s notes; and I proofread at all stages through to publication.

I also work on a wide range of non-fiction publications, offering reliable and thorough editorial services, completing projects on time and on budget. I currently manage a small team of freelancers providing proofreading services to a health and social care consultancy. I regularly edit the annual report, prospectuses and brochures for the University of York, and proofread research group reports. I create and edit programmes and posters for York Musical Society concerts in York Minster.

I am an Advanced Professional Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading.
