    Please allow this letter to serve as an inquiry for the available project you are looking to get accomplished. My experience as a writer, lecturer and research analyst make me confident of being the perfect candidate to help you achieve exactly what you are looking for. I have acquired an MSc. in Business Management degree from the renowned university “The University of Sheffield”. Furthermore, I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Rochester Institute of Technology in Applied Arts and Science (concentrations in Business Management, Economics and Statistics). During the course of my studies I have gained knowledge in many different areas such as management skills, economic environment, interpersonal communication and leadership. Furthermore, studies in Human Resources and Accounting for Managers have given me strong base for the respective fields. Attending various conferences and programs on energy, startup business and democracy related issues, has expanded my horizon of understanding the domestic environment as well as being aware of what is going on in the region and around the world. My experience of working as a project coordinator for MDA(Management Development Associates www.seemda.com). has equipped me with a strong base in managing various tasks including facilitating focus groups for strategy development and the preparations of financial reports. Currently I teach management classes at a private college. Besides teaching I am also the head of the library where I lead a team of 3 professionals in managing the library, sorting, updating new issues etc. If given the opportunity I am eager to discuss my potential contribution to your project.  less

    As a French native state-employed English Teacher for quite a number of years, I can provide accurate translations from English into standard French from FRANCE, and the other way round. I worked for "Gengo.com" for a year only, but unlike them, so far, I can translate into genuine UK English all types of documents at the rate of $0.06/word, that can be as low as $0.04 for high volumes starting from 3,000 words ( and $0.08/word for technical and legal translation jobs), and my test- results speak for themselves. Given my background, I can deliver truly academic, as well as audience-oriented translations. However, I now refuse to translate content for e-commerce sites selling illegal products in FRANCE, as the shoppers would have problems with the French customs, or even worse, with the police. I also refuse to proofread what appears to be plain machine-translation or clearly post-edited machine translation jobs, from either other contractors (you should just ask for a refund!) or customers. Fair enough, isn't it? Now, please have a look at my portfolio, and you will see what I mean! Finally, I now have experience in simultaneous 3-way translation over the phone (see my profile).  less

    Describe the service in one word: Communication. Better communication is my passion and I invest myself in each project with that goal in mind. As an editor it is my job to make the writer look even better and to make sure the point being made is clear. Good communication has a clear purpose, is error free, and is easily readable. I'll help you connect with your target audience (even if it's broad) and deliver your message in a way that it can be clearly received. I provide content that is informative, interesting, and will keep them coming back for more. Don't put the same reused dribble on your prized webpage, let me offer you quality content that will make you stand out. If you're looking for something more personal or creative don't run away yet. In my personal writing I have a flare for creativity and have found a poetic voice. If you have a story to tell I'd love to help you get it out and onto paper. If you have an idea that you want brought to life, I'm excited to hear it. I study communication, writing, and psychology as personal interests and bring immense insight into each of the projects I work on. I look forward to working with you, Josh  less
