Depending on what country you live in this can be a well-paid job or a really low paying job. I edit Russian-English translations in Central Asia.
I like editing. I don't like the inconsistency of jobs/pay, seeing as it's freelance.
I thought I would like it. But I'm not happy in that position because they didn't let me edit the use of words. They just wanted us, proofreaders, to correct the spellings and grammars. Sort of boring and disrespecting the staffs.
I am a Spanish language proofreader, and I enjoy it.
Love to being proofreader for reading documents and correcting the spelling mistakes.
