Everyone needs an editor. (Even writers.) Red Shoes will edit, proofread, and provide guidance in creating strong and concise language to get your materials noticed. Here’s what the Red Shoes will be looking for when editing your text:
• Spelling • Grammar • Punctuation • Clarity and consistency of theme • Word choice – Is there a stronger verb or a more concise adjective that could be used? • Linguistic ambiguity – Do we know who is doing what? • Stylistics – Are you using the same voice or tone throughout your work? • Who is your audience? • What is the goal or purpose of the text and have you achieved it?
Here are some links I like which can offer some guidance for finding a good editor:
English-Language Marketing Materials
This service is for the client who already has English-language marketing materials and is looking for that final touch of authenticity and clarity.
You’ve worked hard to put together the best materials for your business; maximize your effectiveness with excellent interpretation and understanding from your language to English. Red Shoes will help you create solid marketing materials that clearly and correctly express what you want to say to your English-speaking audience. I have worked with texts translated from Spanish, Dutch, Czech, and German and have a Bachelor’s degree in Linguistics.

Resumes & Cover Letters
One of the greatest writing challenges you’ll face at some point in life is that of describing yourself and explaining why you are the right person for the job. What should you say? How much should you say? What shouldn’t you say?
Red Shoes helps you navigate through the language of resumes and cover letters, utilizing powerful vocabulary that fairly represents and describes you.
Package 1: Polishing the Shoes For the client who already has a strong cover letter or resume and is looking for that final spiff. This includes a one-hour consultation and light editing.
Package 2: Cobbling the Shoes For the client who needs a new heel, some laces, and polish. Includes preview of current resume and cover letter, interview, creating up to two resumes and two cover letters, final edits to your approval, and up to one-hour post consultation.
Package 3: Buying New Shoes For the client who has no resume – or a significantly antiquated one – and no cover letter. This includes a complete compilation of work history, education, skills, awards, etc., and interview from which we create up to three versions of your resume and cover letter, final edits to your approval, and up to one-hour post consultation. These are some serious shoes. *Please ask about special rates for recent college graduates!
