About me

What I Offer.

I specialise in writing, formatting and editing in plain English.

I work with text, information material and websites aimed at a global market or people who do not have English as their first language.

I create case studies that tell the world about your successful customer relationships and why people choose your company or organisation.

What I Do

Editing

I make sure your message is clear, concise and instantly understandable

    Why?

    Communications and expectations break down if people have to make guesses about who you are, what you do, or why they need you. You see two websites. One has mistakes, bad spelling and vague, puzzling sentences. The other is clear, accurate and has no errors. Which one gives you the most confidence and builds trust?

    How?

    I make sure your vocabulary and sentences are in plain English. I check for clarity and consistency, and I check that your text ‘matches its purpose’. I make changes to the text, the format and the layout as needed and I re-write your text based on your specifications.

Case Studies

I tell people who you are, not just what you do

  • Learn more

    Why?

    Because your story says more about you than a hundred bullet points. A long list of all the things you could do is just a list. A case study is a description of how you worked with someone, solved problems together, built up trust and respect, how you made a real difference. Which one tells everyone who you are and what you do in the real world?

    How?

    I talk with your satisfied customers about their business relationship with you and write up the success story. You can share it on your website, in trade magazines, in a brochure or on a blog. You can also use it to examine the effectiveness of your marketing strategy, your customer service and your relationship building.

About me

My background and experience

I’ve had a varied career that’s included the public and voluntary sectors as well as business, doing project management, training & development and communications work. I’ve always enjoyed writing and editing, and am the first to step up when reports, evaluations, articles and proposals need doing. I love the fact I’ve been involved with people of all ages and nationalities, with different interests and different messages to get across. And I enjoy the challenge of pitching my work at just the right level for the audience.

I’ve produced a lot of information material, training resources and media documentation in my time. I also write and edit web-based content and worked on the production of several communications-focused websites. I specialise in writing, formatting and editing in plain/global-English, particularly text aimed at audiences who do not have English as their first language. Most recently I added case studies to my regular workload – talking to companies and their satisfied clients about their business relationship, then writing up the success story.
