Details of my editing services
- Please contact me here with editing requests or questions.
- My hourly rate for editing services is CHF 90 (CHF 70 for students). The amount of time I need for editing depends on the length of the text and the extent of revisions required / requested. I can provide a price estimate in advance if necessary.
- I usually require one week to complete an editing assignment but try to accommodate more urgent requests. Please include your preferred deadline with your request.
- I am familiar with both American and British language conventions. Please indicate your preference with your editing request.
- I add my suggestions electronically using the 'Track Changes' function in Microsoft Word (preferred) or with the editing tools available for PDF documents. I make detailed comments throughout the document explaining my suggestions.
- I value personal contact with authors and enjoy discussing my editing suggestions and providing follow-up advice on texts when necessary. I typically correspond with authors via email or phone, but meeting in person can also be arranged in many cases.
- Most authors seek my assistance for improving the content and English language of their texts. However, I am familiar with style requirements for manuscript submission to various scientific journals. If you would like me to check these elements (e.g., references, figure and table formatting), please note this in your editing request and specify the target journal.
- I offer help with any type of academic document (manuscripts, research proposals, presentations, websites, etc.). My research experience and most of my editing work has been in environmental sciences, but I am happy to consider editing texts from other disciplines.
- I have experience translating website material and documents from German to English.
