Sophia Rochmes, Academic Copyeditor

Museum Plantin-Moretus, Antwerp, Belgium

My Services


I specialize in academic texts in English by non-native speakers:

journal articles, books and book chapters, dissertations, conference presentations, grant and fellowship applications,

job applications, project applications, professional correspondence

If you have another type of text you would like edited, please don't hesitate to contact me at


I proofread and copyedit academic documents for fluency, clarity and correctness.

This includes editing spelling, punctuation and grammar, as well as word choice, phrasing and sentence structure.


When the project is complete you will receive three documents:

  • a clean edited copy of your document
  • an edited copy of your document showing full markup (using Microsoft Word’s track changes feature)
  • a summary document of additional notes (e.g. clarification on edits or further suggestions)


I offer additional services by request:

  • formatting references according to a standard style (e.g. APA or Chicago) or a style sheet provided by you
  • formatting figures, tables, etc.
  • feedback on structure and content (developmental editing)
