Dr. Taylor McConnell


Copyediting and German–English translation services for academics and small businesses

I offer a range of editorial and translation services tailored to your writing needs.

My expertise lies in business and the social and political sciences. I have research experience in memory studies, violence, nationalism, identity and European history, with a particular focus on Germany and the former Yugoslavia.

If you need a quick German–English translation, you’re in the right place! I also provide transcriptions of audio files in both English and German and offer document formatting and citation/reference checks.

I am a proud Intermediate Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) and a member of Mediterranean Editors and Translators, and I am committed to continuing professional development.

I was more than happy with Taylor’s work. He was very thorough in editing and proofreading my paper manuscript. In addition, he provided very helpful advice and detailed suggestions to improve the style and the content. My paper looked much better and sounded more coherent after Taylor’s inputs.
