My name is Marc Murphy-Robinson and I am from Bristol in the UK. I am an experienced and qualified proofreader and copy-editor from the UK and an intermediate-level member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading.
Prior to becoming a proofreader, I worked for over 20 years as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language and Japanese-English translator, so I have a good understanding of the intricacies of the English language, including its grammar, spelling and international variants.
During my time in Japan, I became involved in translating and proofreading work and this has been part of my life since. I even moved into as a full-time career for a while, working in both roles for a company in Myanmar. Now, I have finally decided to make a career of it and build up a portfolio as a freelancer.
