    For over 15 years, I have mastered in the technical and professional translation, working for public institutions and private companies. Also, I have proved to be an excellent organizer and event manager. My main competencies, apart from translation and localization, consist in reviewing and editing tasks for private companies, publishing houses or private advertising agencies, organizing and managing events, managing and editing web contents, as I do have an online interdisciplinary magazine, literary-oriented, which doesn't mean at all I have less skill and expertise in the other above-mentioned fields. I am open to new opportunities of collaboration, concerning translation and localization, web-content writing and editing, reviewing and editing, managing and organizing, for private subjects or businesses and companies.

    I'm English and have 27 years' writing and editing experience. Self-employed since 2001, I'm good at working at distance with clients and associates across borders, delivering successfully to tight deadlines. Since gaining a Masters degree from the London School of Economics in 1985, I've worked in the public and private sectors in the UK, Belgium and Italy. I've produced a wide range of articles, press releases, speeches, reports, funding applications, programme documents and political briefings. My CV and portfolio highlight my ability to tackle a range of subjects, such as education policy, employment law, golf course architecture, pesticides and water legislation. My client base reflects this versatility: e.g. The Salvation Army, The Professional Golfers' Associations of Europe and Lincolnshire County Council. A large proportion of my written work since 2001 has been competitive bid writing, successfully winning grants from the European Union and UK government. A testimonial from Steve Swan, Director of the UK charity, The Tomorrow's People Trust, states: "Steve has ... an ability to draft in a clear and concise manner ... (&) helped us to win grants over the years for our projects in London, Plymouth, Liverpool and Glasgow."  less

  • Social Media Marketer, Copywriter, Online Marketing and PR, Startup

    I am a copywriter, an online marketer, social media marketer and the Co-Founder of KickStartup Marketing. I create content for websites, articles, blogs and run several social media campaigns for a very diverse set of clients. I am always available to discuss the project and I'm a true self-starter. I help online (and offline) entrepreneurs form and execute marketing strategies to boost their customer base and increase sales. My specialty is in helping clients set up their social media marketing campaigns (the technical aspects of profile readiness) and maintain it long-term so they can concentrate on running their business. I am a copywriter and specialize in website content, and content related to product branding. I also write for several blogs. I help clients develop their brand and close gaps in their online marketing efforts. What I just said probably sounds pretty mundane...or at least it does to me. This is my profile, there are many like it, but this one is mine. I once had a client email me a message that read, "Your status posts are great". I replied, "What! That's horrible...I'll look into it." The message here is that in order to be talked about, content must be remarkable. Good is far too safe, boring and most often times easily forgotten. Differentiate yourself to your customers. Find the market that is the most profitable. Most companies (unless your toilet paper) do not cater to the masses. You should not be marketing to everyone because it's a waste of time and money. Although, the Internet provides a way to reach a mass market, to say that you should market to everyone is misguided logic. Every business should have a clear understanding of what market they serve- then find out how to reach them. If you're blindly throwing in the fishing line and hoping to catch something, anything...then you're wasting your marketing budget. Your potential clients are all online, and I can help you break through the clutter to find them and capture their attention. I like marketing products with momentum. I like marketing products that really have the potential to catch on. I love working with startups and professionals. If your business needs to be revitalized I can help you with that too. Marketing a remarkable product makes me giddy- but so does figuring out how to make your average product marketable. Some of my clients have contacted me while still in the concept or product development stage- this is a great time to put a team together and bring me in as a consultant to help you put your marketing investment into your product. Some products and services are easy to spread, others are a bit of a challenge. This is where the importance of strategic and tactile marketing and copywriting come in. Your website, product or service marketing decides whether your business hangs in the balance or catches on. Marketing is measurable and risks are necessary but manageable and thus containable. Metrics help you decide what works so you can do more of it. Your entire business can be optimized. Launching a new product or service is much too important to be left to just one person, contact me today and Ill get back to you within a few hours. Thanks, Erin Corral  less
