Richard Editing Provides a Full Range of TEXT EDITING, WEB CONTENT, and VIDEO PRODUCTION
Specializing in Non-Native English manuscripts.
Text, Web, Video Editing
Since 1988, I have engaged in countless, varied writing and editing projects, including newspaper reporting, photo journalism, advertising design and copy-writing, and technical editing. Since 2002, I have produced martial arts educational videos for DVD and streaming.
Editing for English as a Second Language
I help non-native English authors, researchers and graduate- or post-doctoral students improve English manuscripts. Make your papers more marketable to peer-reviewed journals. Effectively contribute to your field of study with professionally edited content. Submit papers with clear, well-written English texts. To help build your career, please contact me today.
I’ll correct grammar, typography, spelling, punctuation, and formatting. This is helpful for manuscripts approaching final cut.
More corrections of awkward sentences, organization of information, rearranging larger blocks of text for stronger, more concise meanings. I will make suggestions and ask clarifying questions to help you develop your text more on your own. This level applies to more rough cut manuscripts or texts by authors who are familiar with their subject matter, but are not yet completely at native English usage.
Revising and Rewriting …
More advanced editorial role in developing your text. I can help you develop your ideas more clearly and express them in English in a more organized manner. This level can be applied to intermediate to advanced English writing skills. Contact me to discuss more beginning level English projects. It may be that you need an English teacher, rather than an editor.
Formatting and Sending Your Files …
E-mail electronic files in a Microsoft Word or equivalent format (.doc), Microsoft Excel (.xls), Adobe (.pdf) files, Dreamweaver (.htm, .html), InDesign (.indd), Photoshop (.psd). I deliver video files in Final Cut Pro X for DVD, streaming, and mobile devices and other formats. I edit MS Word texts with “track changes” and return documents both highlighted and a clean copy.
Turn old VHS tapes into DVDs
Update your library by digitizing analog video. Have your favorite VHS tapes digitized and burned into DVDs or into streaming files. Contact me and tell me how long your videos are to get a price estimate.
