Tekla Szymanski
Content + Design™ LLC

I am a trilingual content designer, editor and writer, fluent in German (mother tongue), English and Hebrew, based in Manhattan and working remotely across the globe. I am the founder and CEO of Content + Design™ LLC, a woman-owned business providing content design and editorial services for content-rich websites with a global reach.

I grew up in Italy, France and Germany and have worked for decades in Israel; since 1995, I am in New York.

As a writer and editor, I believe in quality content, no matter the platform. I bridge cultures linguistically and culturally, and localizing content and adjusting it to a specific target audience has always been a key part of my blueprint-free career. As a content designer, I think any design should supplement the content, increase its impact, assist in its presentation and support its functionality. 

I treat words as design elements. Designing and writing are more alike than you think. Both are about storytelling, forming ideas and giving ideas form. They are compatible languages and forms of inquiry.

Many web designers and developers don’t have a multicultural and multilingual content-creating background. And many content designers don’t have creative experience. I have both.

Services offered: content creation, -strategy and -design, editorial services, brand marketing, web dev, site localization and quality control for AI writing. Your diligent human editor for the digital world.
