We are looking for US- and UK-based native speakers of English to proofread / review large volumes of materials in variety of subjects, such as medicine / pharma, technology and IT, law, finance and business, as well as literature / fiction / non-fiction. We are particularly looking for individuals with legal background / legal writers for review of existing materials. Strong professional background and previous experience in providing similar services are required.
Please be aware of the definition of native speaker:
<<A "native speaker of English" refers to someone who has learned and used English from early childhood. It does not necessarily mean that it is the speaker's only language, but it means it is and has been the primary means of concept formation and communication. It means having lived in a truly English-speaking culture during one's formative years, so that English has been absorbed effortlessly as by osmosis.
One can have been born and grown up in a country that lists English as one of its official languages and not be a "native" speaker. For example, Canadians from Quebec cannot automatically be considered native English speakers even though many speak English quite well; they were brought up speaking French as a first language and think in French. But the rest of Canada does largely consist of native speakers of English.
Speaking "like a native" of any language means more than just knowing vocabulary and grammar. Many educated foreign speakers speak better formal English than, say, many Americans or British or Australians. But formal English is only one aspect of the language. Knowing instantly what slang means, what cultural references mean, how to reduce syntax to a bare minimum and still convey precise meaning — all these things, and more, are what constitute native speech.>>
We regularly provide texts that are either written by non-native speakers of English or translated - they usually require "final native touch".
