In an effort to reduce the amount of back and forth we may have about my approach to your project, I’ve gathered a list of Frequently Asked Questions to help you determine if I’m the right wordsmith for your needs.
If you don’t see a Q&A that mirrors what you’re looking for, please don’t hesitate to send me an email with your details. I’ll try my best to get you an answer within one business day.
If you’re interested in learning about what subjects I’ve covered in my 15-year career in writing and editing, there’s another lovely list on my Services page.
If you would like to see examples of those projects (or a particular type of assignment that mirrors your goal), send me a quick email and I’ll pass along 1 or 2 samples created in that specific style.
If you have a project where you require an exact transfer of content from one source to another (e.g., a research paper –> slideshow presentation), I’m someone who can review it with a fine-tooth comb, ensuring all letters, accent marks and punctuation are exactly as they should be. I have experience in comparison proofreading in over 20 languages, including Spanish, Thai, Russian, Arabic, Greek, Mandarin, German, Dutch, Urdu and Finnish.
If you request a quote for your project, I will provide an estimate within 2 business days.
Once we reach an agreement on the price, deadline and expectations, I’ll draft a contract (don’t worry — I like to keep them short and sweet!) that we’ll both sign. You will send me an initial payment equal to 30% (long projects), 50% (short projects) or 100% (1-page assignments like resumes, mission statements, etc.) of the estimated quote before I begin working on the project.
From there, I’ll start writing or editing. Depending on our contract, I will provide detailed updates regarding the pace of the assignment. When it’s complete, I’ll deliver the proof in a pdf attachment. Two revisions of the final piece will be provided free of charge. Starting with the third revision, I will charge an hourly rate to amend the copy to your satisfaction.
Once you are satisfied with the final draft or edit, I will send the proof to you in both a Microsoft Word document and a pdf attachment (to ensure layout structure). The remaining portion of my payment must be paid within a NET 30 deadline. After I receive the final payment, I will contact you for any feedback (negative or positive) about your experience on working with me on your special project.
