Professional indexing involves much more than a computer-generated concordance. Proper indexing requires careful reading and analysis of your book's content in order to determine key concepts and how they relate to one another. This type of intense study of your work will lead to a well-crafted and useful back-of-book index for your readers' reference.
I love to gather and organize information. As a scholarly researcher, I am accustomed to managing lengthy and complex research and writing projects. As a professional indexer and member of the Indexing Society of Canada, I apply those same skills to your book by meticulously reading and analysing your content to create a carefully composed and useful back-of-the-book index. I specialize in scholarly and academic materials (Humanities, Social Sciences, Business), including complex documentation and multilingual texts, in a range of fields and disciplines: literature, linguistics, history, religion, philosophy, sociology, political science, economics, business.
I also offer indexing services for English texts containing Latin, Ancient Greek, Italian, Spanish, French, German, and (limited) Arabic content.
I use CINDEX designated professional indexing software.
