I have several decades of experience in IT, as a programmer (mostly assembler & embedded C/C++), Systems/Requirements Analyst, documenter/technical writer.
I am skilled with MS Office products especially customising - I can make Excel do almost anything!
I\'ll proofread anything that is not obscene: fiction or non-fiction, technical or creative. Errors and inconsistencies hit me without me looking for them. I do an especially good job of rewriting translations into English from foreign language to make them read naturally for a native (UK) English speaker.
Area Covered: Hampshire, Sussex, anywhere via Internet
