About Me


I'm Helen Johnson, word-lover and closet etymologist with a soft spot for a well-placed apostrophe.

My career is founded on a life-long love of language and communication.

I believe in the power of the written word. Whether I am editing a book, writing a website or translating a menu, I see each job as a lovely lexical jigsaw – exploiting the nuances and expressions of English, transforming your vision into a slick and creative means of communication.

Outside of work I hang out with my husband and young family – dividing our time between Oxford, the Lake District and Berlin.
