About The English Editors

Based in the Netherlands and established by professional magazine editor and writer Russell Gilbert in 2008, The English Editors is an informal network of some of the most talented and respected freelance native English language editors, writers, journalists and creative copywriters that he has worked with over the years.

The English Editors is founded on the knowledge that in an age of specialisation, no one person – no matter how professional or experienced – can cater for the unique needs of every client.

Thus, and to paraphrase American President Woodrow Wilson, Russell Gilbert uses not only all the brains that he has, but also all the (freelance) brains that he can borrow.

Russell Gilbert - Editor-in-Chief

Russell Gilbert - professional English editor, writer and proofreader based in Aalsmeer Russell relocated to the relative quiet of Aalsmeer (near Amsterdam) in 2007, after living and working in central London for over 20 years.

Russell has amassed a considerable wealth of hands-on experience gained from working professionally on magazines and other publications across a diverse range of industry sectors. Publications he has worked on in an editorial capacity include:

This means that he is a skilled and highly professional editor, writer and project manager with a deep knowledge of magazine publishing, editorial content creation, corporate communications, journalism, copywriting, and website and app publishing.

In 2008, he decided to offer his skills and services as a freelance English language editor, publishing consultant, copywriter and proofreader - a move that is benefiting an ever-growing number of clients.

Although based in a relatively quiet corner of the Netherlands, Russell's diverse clients – which include busy and dynamic organisations, highly-ranked universities, and respected academics – ensure that he is always at the heart of the editorial action.

In his spare time, Russell is a keen hunter of obscure vinyl records, an amateur photographer, and an enthusiastic cook. Find Russell Gilbert @ LinkedIn.
