I have long had a keen interest in editing and was able to gain professional experience in the field in the 2011-12 academic year, when I worked as the Editorial Assistant at the Journal of Folklore Research. My specialty is in the humanities, but I am willing to considering working with you on a paper well outside my field if you are interested in hiring me to help with your work. Papers I have edited have appeared in numerous edited volumes as well as in JFR [coming soon: links to samples of my editing work].
Contact me at andersem at indiana dot edu for quotes in the following areas of work:
Line- and copy-editing of all kinds of writing up to specialized academic articles
Copy-editing of articles and other writing to check for spelling (based on most recent spelling reform), as well as sentence structure and overall flow
I do not edit translations, particularly those that have been done from languages I know. Editing a translation from Uyghur to English might take me anywhere from three to four times the amount of time it would have taken me simply to translate on my own.
Additionally–and I hate that I have to specify this–please do not ask me to edit work done by the Messrs. Google and Baidu. I categorically refuse to edit any piece of writing that has obviously been put through an online translator.
