I am a teacher of Japanese, with honours degrees in both Japanese and German. I hold translation qualifications in German, and am also a qualified proof reader and copy editor. I have excellent skills in spelling and grammar, and can advise on these as well as correct them. I am happy to proof read your work or to write it for you, and give you whatever level of advice you require. As well as Japanese and German, I have some knowledge of French, Italian, and Latin, so I am able to proof read work which has elements of these languages in it also. I also have extensive experience in writing and re-writing of articles, have good general computer skills and am a fast touch typist.
