Editing and proofreading
Could you be clearer?
Edit and proofread your own work, and you’re sure to miss grammar glitches and typos hiding in plain sight.
Fresh eyes will find the pesky errors you don’t see. In your head, the message is clear, convincing, and correct. So, that’s how you read it.
‘As a copywriter with her head firmly stuck in the research and writing side of content creation, I need someone with eyes sharper than a hawk to spot my errors and a mind that can meet with my ideas to give them the clarity and final finesse they need.
Mary is all that. A wonderful editor who elevated my copy so that when I delivered it to my client, I felt confident and happy that they were getting the absolute best.’
Copy editing that kills errors and keeps your voice
I give you a polished version of your original. I replace unwieldy words with stronger, simpler ones. I’ll trim too long sentences and pick up rogue punctuation.
If I think your work needs a serious overhaul, I’ll tell you why and how.
- spells death to errors that distract readers and damage your credibility
- protects your message and promotes your personality
I charge $125 per hour for fast, accurate copyediting and proofreading.
Want your words to sound like you, only better? Send me a sample, and I’ll send you a quote.
‘Mary stood out to the judges for her very human, personal approach to communicating with her clients and her great project management system.’

French to English translation and editing
Lose nothing in translation
‘You can’t imagine how much your English texts help me improve my French writing… This was not at all “included” in the scope of our translation agreement, but I guarantee you that it is extremely instructive for me 🙏🏻
‘Tu n’imagines pas à quel point tes textes en anglais m’aident à améliorer ma façon d’écrire en français… Ce n’était pas du tout « inclus » dans le périmètre de notre accord de traduction, mais je te garanti que c’est extrêmement formateur pour moi 🙏🏻’
