Help for Publishers and Research Organisations

If you are looking to outsource your editing and communications services, I can help. With nearly two decades of editing experience and training, I can support you and your team to navigate the changing publishing landscape and provide hands-on support working directly with producers of written content – academic and non-fiction.

I have in-depth knowledge of the traditional publishing process (books and journals), and nearly equal years of in-house and independent experience as an editor. I can provide different levels of editing and proofreading, and am happy to liaise with editors, translators, indexers, designers, compositors and other publishing colleagues.

If you’re looking for a friendly professional offering exemplary commitment to quality, schedules, budgets and client confidentiality, you’re in the right place.

If these values are important to you, perhaps we can work together. My priorites are:

Sensitive Editing

Perceptive Problem-Solving

Constructive Creativity

Conscious Collaboration

“Very good language editor. Works with ease with all clients. Has helped to build and maintain good relationships on new projects. A good trainer, with a flair to pick up latest (editing) styles and apply suitably. One can confidently entrust Ayesha with work and rest assured the outcome will be of high quality.”

H.S. Rupa, SR Nova General Manager (Copyediting), BMJ papers

“I have worked closely with Ayesha and have always found her to be efficient, hard-working, dependable and patient. Her language-editing skills are beyond compare. In our line of work, I am yet to find someone who pays such attention to detail as she does. She also never shies away from taking on difficult or challenging projects. At Macmillan, she always kept my grey cells working overtime with her constant barrage of questions. In short, the absolute best of talent that I have come across in my career.”

Wendy Nayar, Former Manager (Copyediting), Macmillan Publishing Ltd

“Ayesha copy-edits one of our STM journals. She is very reliable and efficient and always returns the articles on (usually before) deadline. I would not hesitate to recommend her to any prospective client.”

– Sharon Nickels, Project Manager, Sunrise Setting Ltd

“Ayesha did a fantastic job editing our IBDP Economics content, striking the ideal balance of being thorough yet efficient and handling the complexities of editing a live digital product with ease. She was professional, friendly and a real pleasure to work with.”
