Editing work for the European Environment Agency

This project provided technical editing services for manuscripts for the European Environment Agency (EEA) in close collaboration with the EEA project manager.  The projects aimed to communicate concisely and effectively, targeting a wide range of audiences.   Texts, were frequently drafted by more than one author and by non-native English speakers, and the process aimed to be all the text readable and transparent, and to appear to be written in a consistent writing style. 

This required a high level of quality control of language to ensure this consistency.  The project work also included editing material for the publication via the Internet.
