Words on Your Mind?

Some people search for a freelance editor because they find editing about as much fun as cleaning their entire car with a toothbrush. For others, the frustration comes from a greater force: the seismic social shifts taking place in society today.

For me, burying myself in words is like lying out on a warm summer’s day, under a shady tree.

Whether the words you want need to convey an exciting sale or discuss a sensitive topic, I’d love to help.

I’m a Freelance Editor and Translator Who Can Help

Hi! My name’s Lori Straus. I’m a freelance editor and German-to-English translator. As the owner of Lori Straus Communications, I write about technology, the humanities, social sciences, and the arts and write for clients in Canada, the U.S., and Germany. As a novelist, I craft stories for readers in the young adult and adult age groups. I bring all this expertise to my freelance editing and translation clients.

Topics? My love of the arts, social sciences, and technology has helped me write and edit about a range of topics: from ZZ Top to SAP translation to cars to children living with chronic and rare diseases. I can read about cultural theory, marketing, linguistics, intersectionality, and war crimes against women.

And there’s of course a lot in between.

So, how can I help you? Different clients have different needs, so I’ve separated my offerings to help you find the most relevant information quickly. (For marketing clients, please visit LoriStrausCommunications.com for details. The information on my website here is relevant but will ask you to ultimately check out my other business.) Click on the button that best matches you and learn more about how I can help turn your days from drudgery into luxury again.
