Welcome to Helen Birkbeck Language & Editorial Services

I provide a proofreading and copy-editing service for all types of written material. Texts can be checked on screen or on paper using BS 5261 symbols, according to the client’s requirements.

I will tackle most subjects, but specialise in academic and general business texts, languages and theology.

I have a degree in German and Norwegian and also offer translation from these languages and proofreading of translations. I am a member of the the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading and the Federation of Small Businesses, and you can find me on LinkedIn at http://uk.linkedin.com/in/helenbirkbeckeditorial

My clients include mainstream publishers, academic organisations, charities, businesses, journals and individuals – and anyone who needs to produce clear and accurate documents that are well written and presented. My rates are negotiable but always fair and competitive.

I also offer a service for authors and details can be found Here:
