Information about translating and editing services

These services are provided with the goals of: a) giving quality economic research a fair chance at being published and otherwise making it more accessible to the target audience and b) supporting the efforts of established consultants, independent researchers and research institutions to display a maximum of professionalism in effectively communicating the outputs of projects they have laboured on. Computer skills relating to research support services are listed here. No editing services are provided below the post-doctorate level without express consent of an advisor, who must be an active professor at a recognized university.

Academic background

- MA, Economics, Université Laval, Canada
- HBA, Political Science specialist, University of Toronto, Canada
- 1 complete year, Engineering, University of Waterloo, Canada
- Please view profile at LinkedIn for some more details on my formal background. Between formal learning, sponge-like effects when overseas and directed efforts at self learning, I have ridiculously broad coverage of maths, computers, natural and social sciences, philosophy, languages, music and other, although this is not always apparent to the specialist. Sometimes it all comes together in a way that jives with other peoples' understanding of what is going on out there. If you think someone can learn it, I can learn it. This is inordinately useful in translation and editing.
