Looking for native English speakers


(Alessio Fattorini) #1

Folks,
I must admit that my English is pretty bad :confounded: recently writing a few stuff like newsletter and blog posts I realized that I need now more than ever of someone who can look through my drafts, proofreading the texts.
Anyone available to help me? I could pay with goodies :wink:
Just a few names come to my mind @painkiller895 @macwunder @Adam @Sean_Maloney @petralemoisson @Gardia @Raximus @medworthy @Huxy @tim @tzar @EddieA @jmbak @Bluelake @xmechanic @Steven_Queue @WillZen @Rustie

My wife is a professional editor with a masters degree in communications. I’m pretty sure we can help.

That beats my college English and spelling / grammar OCD. You win.

@alefattorini your English isn’t that bad, but my first suggestion is to change the topic title to "native English speaker’.

:smile:

Sorry. I can’t help. I am a native German speaker and my English is as good as yours. :sob:

(Alessio Fattorini) #10

Don’t worry, I read Australia on your profile and forgot your European origins :smiley:

@Adam @fasttech @Bluelake @tzar thanks for your answer to my cry for help, would you mind working on google docs? Could you send me privately your google account if you have one? Thanks again, you are saving the world from my bad English :smiling_imp:

I have also done some technical writing and have produced some non-technical end-user documentation / guides in the past, I am also a native English (British) speaker, if I can be of any help…
