    Hello,

    I'm Jesse Allen from Minnesota USA, a native English speaker who loves working to help others succeed with their internationally exposed small businesses or any publications dedicated to English speaking audiences.

    I offer proofreading and editing for short articles, sales letters, emails and anything else of importance to you that happens to be in English. Helping you to get your message across as clear as possible is my priority.


    For the first 3 who request my services, I can offer you free proofreading and editing for articles up to 500 words. Contact me, freshdoor at hotmail.com , and tell me what I can do for you. Please leave a review on this thread and let others know if you were pleased with my work.

    I look forward to hearing from you,


    Jesse

    Hello Jesse,

    And welcome here. Nice to have you with us. Your offer looks great and would like to ask you few questions. Do you have some portfolio, can you write articles no matter the subject, and I haven't seen any prices, would be so nice to let us know how much does it cost an article containing ... lets say 500 words.

    I would like to test your service. I will definitely leave a feedback here. ;)

    Believe me, here are a lot of webmasters with English web sites, so I think you are on the right place to get clients.

    Good luck,
    B.

    Hey Jesse, will you proofread the articles in American or in British English? How much do you charge per h or 1k words proofreading?

    Hi everybody!

    Thank you all for your replies, and my apologies for the delayed response. I only know a few words in Bulgarian so I'm having trouble navigating the site and responding individually to your comments. Instead of clicking the wrong thing I'll answer all of your questions in one reply.

    Firstly in response to Blinky, thank you for your warm welcome to the site. As for your question about supplying a portfolio, I've helped people primarily with VISA and job applications, or other things with a high degree of confidentiality and sensitivity, and I'm unable to use their documents as I wasn't allowed to keep copies. Most of what I've done has been for friends from India who speak English pretty well, but whose writing contains small errors in grammar and spelling.

    My intention was to do do a few free readings and use them as examples for others to see. Obviously I would remove all names and other personal information to protect the identity and any other sensitive information given by the client.

    As far as prices go, I think that $2.50 for 500 words is a fair price. In the future I would like to offer a full writing service in addition to proofreading, but I’ll need time to think about what a fair price would be for writing, especially if it requires translation.

    Some of you asked about which subjects I am strongest in and which dialect of English I use. I am open to proofreading anything that isn’t dependent upon highly technical legal or medical terminology for reasons of safety and liability. I have been an active currency and equities trader for a few years, and am therefore comfortable with the terminology used in the fields of finance and economics.

    The place where I was raised is called Minnesota USA, and we’re known for having a very flat and neutral style of pronunciation when we speak. In my opinion this same style is apparent in our writing, and it works well in international settings where strong local dialects can be easily misunderstood. With that being said, I would say that I’m obviously more adept at reading American English where we are less prone to following hard and strict rules, but instead often use punctuation to imply tone and “flow” in writing.

    I hope this information is useful and hopefully we’ll take soon.

    Of Blinky gives a good review, I will order as well. I need a native writer.

    By the way, 2,50$ is only for proof reading and editing right?

    I am waiting for some prices, it the given are not the one we need. I thought that 2,50$ is for 500 words. Am I mistaking? And if I am, please give us the real prices. ;)

    You are correct. $2.50 for 500 words. I prefer to use paypal and I think it is less expensive than other money transfer services.

    I received an error message last time I posted an email address in this thread, so if you want me to do a free proofread for you, Blinky, send me your email address or even just send the work through a private message on this site.

    Hi again Blinky,

    I am not able to post my email address here for some reason. I receive an error message and my message gets blocked when I try. If you can somehow send me a file through the inbox here I can read and edit it for you.

    I tried to explain before, but it wasn't clear, that I cannot use any of the work I've done in the past because it was all for immigration documents in the US which I can't make copies of. I want to do a few free projects here to use as a portfolio. There is no risk to you. If I do free work and you're happy, I get to use it in my portfolio, and you won't be charged. If I do free work and you're not happy, you won't be charged either.

    Thanks,

    Jesse
