Proofreading/Editing Experience and Qualifications

  • ACT Grammar score of 36 out of 36
  • I have been a professional freelance translator/proofreader for 2 years and have edited and proofread multiple documents which had been translated into English from Spanish or Mandarin. My editing work includes many legal and business documents such as articles of association, labor contracts, birth certificates and marriage licenses.
  • During my previous job as a forensic accountant, I was required to edit multiple written reports which were used as expert witness testimony in legal trials. It was important for these documents to be clearly worded and free of mistakes, so my editing job was very important and required meticulous attention to detail.

Personal Message

Growing up in the U.S., I have always had a passion for language and culture. I am fluent in English, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese (simplified) and have experience translating from these languages into English, as well as proofreading and editing English text. I studied Economics, Business, and Asian Studies at Rice University, and worked as a consultant in the accounting/legal industry, so I am familiar with business/ financial concepts. I truly enjoy helping people and am a great communicator!

Pricing Info

For translations, I usually charge by source word ($0.10-0.15 for Spanish, $0.12-0.17 for Chinese).
For editing, I could charge by hour or word count, but it depends on the difficulty and nature of the project - I usually quote on a case-by-case basis. I am open to negotiation to come up with a fair rate.

Availability

Weekends - all day, may be available on short notice for editing/proofreading/translations, but at least a few days in advance is preferred. Required notice would depend on the difficulty and length of the project.
Weekdays - evenings (6pm-1am CT)
