If you Need Help with your English Instructable - I'll Help Edit & Fix it Up

Hi Everyone!
I love that Instructables reaches the global community and love seeing creations from people all over the world. But, I know sometimes people have issues and struggles with writing, if English isn't their first language. I just wanted to offer some free help.

If you need some quick editing and fixing up - just send me a message or post on here - and I'll happily do it as long as time permits. I used to be a journalist - and enjoy writing/editing and have helped people with papers and resumes in the past. So, just let me know if you need a little help!

Hi Ael, I just checked through your work and made some changes. I Know I'm not Holly, but I wanted to help you. I have only done the Intro so far. If you want me to check through the whole Instructable, feel free to give me a Private Message. :-) Feel free to copy and paste this:


For a friend's birthday, I decided to make her a necklace with a metallic bird pendant. I wanted to do all myself but I didn't have a lot of money to invest. I first thought about metal clay like silver or copper clay, but it wasn't as cheap as I thought. Therefore, I had to buy at less 50e of equipment (blowtorch, special brick…). I didn't have the budget for it (I’m a 17 years old student), and so thats why I chose to change technique and to create the pendant with what I had in my bedroom (which is also my workshop) : metal plates.

At the end, it cost me 15€ for the chain because I wanted a particular one, but you can just buy a necklace around 2€, and 15€ for the small metal files. I haven't before.

So this is how I made it and I hope you enjoy making it.

http://www.instructables.com/id/THE-DOOR-STOPPER-SECRET-COMPARTMENT/ please help me with this one!

Hi JM, I noticed that the word 'you' is used often.. perhaps too often and makes the text awkward..

First of all you will need to make sure that you have permission to do this.

After that you have to make sure that no one is around otherwise it will not be secret.

Then you will need to lever the stopper off like in the picture.

When you have done all of that you will need to go to step two!

this could be rewritten as..

Ensure that you have permission to do this.

Confirm that no one is around otherwise compartment will not be secret.
You will need to lever the stopper off (see picture above).

When finished continue to the next step (2)!

Thanks! will change it now.

You're welcome.. I'm sure there's more...

There might be more, Just a quickie: check out the time of your last post and the time of my reply! that was a pure coincidence!
