In-depth stylistic and copy edits, detailed proofreads, complex localizations, rewrites, condensing typeset text — I’ve done it all. I also speak, read, and write French fluently, and I proofread French texts and edit French-to-English translations.

I have been in publishing for more than a decade, both in-house and freelance, and have edited trade non-fiction books, annual reports, financial reports, brochures, ads, inserts, manuals, and workbooks. I have a great love of the written word, and I enjoy being a part of the publishing process, helping writers make the most of their work. Whether your project is one-colour or four-colour, last minute or long term, I have the skills to turn it into the publication you require.

Vous avez besoin d’une réviseure torontoise bilingue ? Je fais de la correction d’épreuves en français, et je révise des textes traduits du français vers l’anglais.
