United Way of Tarrant County

Objective

I helped the United Way of Tarrant County develop content for their new website. Initially, I met with the stakeholders to understand their needs. After meeting, I audited their previous content, and implemented a project plan. During the project, I maintained a Google Sheet that included links to revised content. While writing, I used best content design practices to develop copy for UW’s audience and site.

Skills and Tools

  • Project Management

  • Audience Analysis

  • Google Sheets and Docs.

  • Comprehensive editing

 

ESL Editing Project

Objective

I helped edit an English as a Second Language (ESL) graduate student's scientific research paper, "A Review of Corrosion Behavior in Bulk Metallic Glasses." He has graciously agreed to let me use his paper as an example. I have redacted all identifying information. The second page illustrates all of my track changes and comments, then the page after that is the edited version with all tracked changes accepted. 

As far as the editing process, instead of traditional copy editing, I comprehensively edited the chapter for organization, design, and style. For the chapter, I employed the following comprehensive editing steps:

  • reviewed the purpose

  • evaluated the content, organization, visual design, and style of the document

  • created editing goals

  • discussed goals with writer

  • created study materials to improve student's writing

Please note, the charts included within the article are from different sources. Therefore, I was not able to edit for consistency. 

Skills and Tools

  • Track changes and comment features in Word

  • Audience Analysis

  • InDesign
