Are you outside the UK but looking for an experienced, effective British copywriter?
I was born in and am based in London, UK, but have worked with clients from more than 25 countries across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and North America, delivering professional website content, advertising, sales collateral and much else. Wherever your business is based, I can help deliver more awareness, more visitors, and more sales.

Better website content – and rankings – wherever you are
If you are keen to attract customers from outside your own country, your prime marketing tool is likely to be your website, and if it’s written in the right way then you can attract customers from all over the world.
That’s why I offer copy-optimised sites – researching what terms people search with globally or in specific countries, then picking the right ones and using them in the right places to ensure high rankings. For some examples, see my SEO copywriting page
Copy Anglicisation or Global Transcreation
I can ensure that your services or products sound great whoever is reading them and wherever they are reading them from.
- US to UK English – if you have American content you would like anglicised, I know the US well and lived there for over a year, so have a good ear and eye for changing spellings and expressions but keeping the same sentiments.
- English editing – if you have some existing copy and the English is not good, don’t worry. I can smarten it up so that it sounds good and the spelling, punctuation and grammar are just right. Quick, easy and very cost-effective.
- Global effectiveness – I make sure that I use straightforward words, without phrases or words that only a British person would appreciate. Anyone speaking basic English will be able to understand what I write, wherever they are from.
English not your first language?
I can proofread and edit your letters, presentations or LinkedIn profile, and turn any marketing communications into excellent business English.
It’s fast, cost-effective and high quality – and perfect for informing and persuading English-speaking readers.
