Screenplay Translation and Proofreading

The English Edge:
 Translation & Proofreading

Translation:  If you need your script translated into English, I work with a team of professional translators who can translate your script into English.

Proofreading:  It’s a harsh fact of the business that many screenplays written by non-native English speakers are rejected simply because their poor English makes them hard to understand.

To stand a chance in Hollywood, or indeed most of Europe, your screenplay needs to be written in excellent English.

As a former English teacher, I can proofread any document, even if the English is poor, and translate it into a screenplay that reads perfectly.

Furthermore, although I was brought up and educated in the UK, I lived in the USA for fifteen years – I can thus translate a screenplay into either British or American English, depending on your preference.

So for a screenplay that is perfectly translated, with authentic UK or US dialogue and vernacular, turn to The English Edge.

Rates vary according to:
Whether the script is already in English or needs translating into English
The length of the script
How quickly you need the work done

"I have worked with Don on three scripts over the past 18 months, and I am looking forward to an ongoing working relationship.

Creatively, he is highly imaginative, capable of utilising both his own ideas and incorporating those of others to their maximum potential. Don is very hard-working - he works fast, but cares - which means that it becomes very energising for those he works with.

Tough deadlines are a challenge rather than a problem, so if time is of the essence, Don is the ideal person to have on your team."

Don is by far the fastest scribe I've had the pleasure of working with. In fact, I am puzzled by how high the quality is; you would think it would suffer accordingly.


Don is always just an email away, and didn't hesitate to open up his phone lines despite us being in two different countries. Note that he insisted on picking up the bill every time, which I thought was class.


Don's educational background, with a Masters in Screenwriting, plus his global travels and experiences, all come through and result in rich, pointed prose. Highly recommended.
