As part of my role at Wings for Life World Run, I also worked with the Wings for Life charity itself. Alongside creating web content for the run, I edited and proofread articles for the Wings for Life on- and offline publications, like Wings for LIFE magazine issue 1 and issue 2.
The articles were from a range of authors — German speakers writing in Eglish, translated German articles, American writers and British writers — so the challenge was to ensure one consistent tone and style across the magazines.
