En ligne Hors ligne
I am a native English speaker living in the UK, and I am interested in proofreading and editing novels, texts related to technology, blog articles, and news articles. I previously edited an autobiography, and I would like to acquire more opportunities to do this type of work. I enjoy reading; I read a wide range of fiction including crime, psychological thrillers, romance, historical fiction, some sci-fi, and non-fiction. I would also like to improve my IT skills. These include building websites with CMS such as Drupal and WordPress, improving my knowledge of SQL, Python, and PHP, so I can later acquire a wider range of work. Other IT careers I'm thinking of are SEO, networking, and remote technical support.. I charge
