About me

Carrie avatar
I am an American freelance copy editor and copywriter, living in The Hague. I work with publishers and businesses, content developers, and translators. Previously, I founded an online English service for business managers and, before that, I was in the Logistics industry around Europe. I have moved around a lot.
What do I do? I help people write in English. They can write or get a work translated, and yet we know that sometimes more is needed. Who checks that the translation sounds “native,” the “how we say that"? Who checks the grammar and punctuation, looks up the rules for capitalization and quotation marks? In short, who makes sure it’s right? 
I welcome inquiries, so please get in touch.
