“An everyday story told expertly beats a wondrous tale recounted badly”

Richer Texts is a language consultancy business run from Helsinki by Richard Savage, a freelance editor and journalist with clients across Europe.

With the benefit of extensive journalistic and editorial experience from the UK and across Europe, Richard can help your project, business or organisation make the most of the English language.

A professional member of the Chartered Institute for Editors and Proofreaders (CIEP, formerly the Society for Editors and Proofreaders), Richer Texts offers high-quality, industry-standard editing, proofing and (re)writing to ensure your English language texts make exactly the right impression and convey the clearest of messages.

I particularly specialise in working on texts that have undergone translation or have been written by inexperienced writers or those for whom English is not their first language. I can work on long-term publishing projects, specialist publications, websites, corporate literature or even a simple invitation.

Book or publication? Web page? Magazine or journal? Promotional material? Chances are the texts will benefit from professional editing. Here’s what you need.

Need a high-quality, experienced, authoritative, professionally trained voice for your audio or video project? Read more here.

Do you or your colleagues need to practise conversational English, want to learn to speak more formally or just more colloquially, or do you simply want to be more confident when using English? I can help.
