I am a professional freelance English editor and proofreader based in Cape Town, South Africa. I have been editing and proofreading English texts for the past fourteen years. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of the Witwatersrand, and a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree from the University of South Africa. I have worked on books for well-known publishing houses such as Oxford University Press, Pearson Education, Macmillan and Longman. I have also worked with individual business people and students whose needs are far more streamlined, but just as important.
