I have 18 years’ experience in the language services industry and 7 years’ experience in banking and investments.

I am a native English speaker.

I keep up to date with the latest trends and developments that affect the financial industry and investors, and actively pursue professional development.

Editing and Proofreading in English

I proofread business and finance-related academic texts written in English by non-native speakers. Editing is an essential aspect of written communication and involves:

  • producing texts which are grammatically and stylistically correct;

  • conforming to industry or sector-specific terminology requirements;

  • ensuring corporate identity in written communication;

  • producing texts whose register and degree of formality comply with target-audience norms and expectations.

Personalized language coaching is particularly meaningful for individuals preparing for presentations, negotiations or job interviews in English - all of which can be very demanding for non-native speakers. We will work towards your specific needs and you will be much more confident when you take the floor.
