SERVICES

  • Bid/proposal editing and proofreading
  • Technical editing and proofreading
  • Report editing and proofreading

I have many years' experience editing and proofreading proposals and technical documentation for the engineering and construction industry. Clients have included Network Rail, Highways England, the Ministry of Justice, Gatwick and Heathrow Airports, Crossrail, Thames Water, LUL, TfL, and National Grid.

Where documents are page or word limited I am particularly skilled at reducing text to meet the Client's requirements whilst still retaining the sense and impact of the source text.

Having worked in the proposals environment I am used to working to tight deadlines whilst ensuring output is of a high editorial standard and meets the Client's specifications.



EXPERIENCE

I have over 20 years' experience of technical writing, editing and proofreading. I worked as a Bid Editor for nearly 10 years, editing and proofreading proposals for the highways, rail, air, water, power and buildings sector.

Leading up to my work in proposals, I worked as a technical author, writing and editing a range of material from computer manuals to reports, marketing brochures and newsletters. In 2003 I broadened my range of skills and studied for an HND in Graphic Design.

I am a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
