Pleased to meet you, I’m Mairi. I’m a copywriter living and working in the heart of Austria. I was born and raised in Scotland but, since 2014, I’ve made Vienna my home.
One of the first things I noticed when I arrived is this: Austria puts the foreign language abilities of most native English speakers to shame.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean that I haven’t come across some poor translations of German to English. That doesn’t mean that every organisation has English content strong enough to reach a new audience, or even to stand out in a crowded marketplace. Most importantly, that doesn’t mean that you have the time or, frankly, desire to create your English language content yourself.
I’m one of those strange people who writes for fun. In fact, I’m one of the even stranger people who loves nothing more than to comb over a finished text, searching for runaway commas and bringing them back into place, checking whether you’ve said ‘colour’ or ‘color’ and making sure that, either way, it’s the same all the way through.
I provide copywriting, copyediting and proofreading services for all kinds of projects in Vienna and beyond.
