I proofread, copyedit and provide language editing for English texts in preparation for publication. I specialize in works by non-native speakers written in American English and British English.


I translate academic and commercial texts from German to English. 

Writing Coach

If you're stuck on a writing project and would like to sharpen your focus and renew your motivation, I'm here to help! We'll discuss your goals, I'll spend time with your text and provide content and stylistic guidance, along with general writing techniques and best practices.  I'm open to any kind of project and especially enjoy working with clients on their personal statements, bios and academic papers in the humanities. 


Once I've received the details of your request, I'll create a quote and a letter of agreement. I base my rates on the guide published by the Editorial Freelancers Association:
For larger projects, I can provide a sample edit of up to three pages of your text for a nominal fee. Please note EFA guidelines for sample edits. 
I accept payment as a direct deposit into my U.S. bank account, my German bank account, and several cash apps.  

Working Together

I speak English, German and Portuguese and am happy to converse with you in your native tongue, if possible, about your request. 

Email me at with details about what you are looking for and I'll respond within two business days.

Client Testimonials

Our professional relationship with Francesca has been thriving for some time. In her work with texts written by non-native speakers, she goes beyond purely technical correction and has provided our authors and editorial staff with thoughtful  recommendations  on substantive issues. She is warm, friendly and respectful—it’s a pleasure working with her!

I recently hired Francesca to edit a paper I was presenting in English at a conference. She is skilled, patient and dedicated. I am very grateful for her help!
