Nick Peers

Writer, Editor, Translator

Welcome to the home page of professional writer, editor and translator Nick Peers.

Since 1994, I’ve been professionally engaged, first as a full-time employee across a variety of roles and magazine titles at Future Publishing, and since 2003 as a self-employed writer, sub and editor for hire.

I’ve written for dozens of digital, print and online titles and clients worldwide across a broad range of subjects. My specialties include computing, technology and history, but I’ve also written extensively across subjects as varied as genealogy, the environment and countryside, home energy, football and education.

I’ve also worked on projects for major corporations such as Vodafone, Dell, Experian, Currys PC World and uSwitch. I’ve also been employed as a writer, editor and project manager for a social media training company, helping to develop course outlines, prospectuses, playbooks and even devise an entire course – on TikTok – from scratch.

For the past six years, I’ve also been involved in translating a range of bookazines – on history, health and science – from Danish, Norwegian and Swedish into English for Bonnier AG through Erak Globalworks. My team and I provide a full service: not only do we machine-translate articles, we fact-check and rewrite for clarity and style, source original English quotations where necessary and place the finished content back on the page using Adobe InDesign before returning it to the publisher, ready for printing.

I pride myself on writing clean, accessible copy that minimises jargon and doublespeak in favour of plain English. I’m also an experienced sub, proofreader and editor, with a track record of success stretching back decades.

I’m always on the lookout for new challenges and opportunities. If you need someone you can trust to deliver well-written copy or pages on time and to spec, please get in contact.
