    STOP! If you are looking for high end content written by a Native English speaker then you have in fact landed on the right profile. However if you are looking for generic content that simply fills the void on a webpage please continue to other profiles. It is sad that many people will agree to pay next to nothing in order to get basic content that rarely makes sense. I can assure you that readers can in fact tell the difference and it only makes your company look bad by hiring non native English speakers. For someone who themselves is not a Native English speaker, often times you will hire those who can write content that looks similar to English dialect, however the reader can ALWAYS tell the difference. Hi, I'm Sierra and I am located in Central Missouri. English is my native language and I have an extensive vocabulary that tends to astonish people. I am great at what I do, whether it includes copy editing or SEO content creation. I work with clients all over the globe, and I genuinely enjoy it. I have become Odesk's go to girl for ESL editing and TOEFL content creation which is awesome and I am proud that my clients entrust me with their contracts. I pride myself on my excellent verbal and written communication skills, having a descriptive writing ability that is second to none, and always providing my clients with 100% original and error free content, I am polite, courteous, and willing to help out with any problems that may arise. I am an extremely fast learner and I will not disappoint. I have excellent references from all of my previous clients and I am willing to provide them at any time. I am a Sociology graduate student, with a minor in Middle Eastern Culture focusing on religion. I have completed numerous contracts on this site as well as others and have always received excellent and positive feedback . I am well versed in teaching English, and I am open to tutor those working to pass the TOEFL exam. I have been working through Odesk since November of 2013 and to be honest it has been great. I now work off this site more because of repeat business and it has been awesome! I have clients from all over the globe and I couldn't have done it without Odesk.  less

    "Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten" – Gucci Family Motto. Although my translation abilities include Dutch, Afrikaans, Germanic, French and Welsh language pairs, these are not principally promoted as my primary function and objective is to transform formal and academic English into a globally understandable, readable, taut, grammatically correct, and acceptable style of English while maintaining an understanding of the need and place for using of localized vernacular. Make your literary task easier by taking advantage of the skills of a TRUE Native English specialist (born, bred, and educated in the homeland of the English language – perhaps the reason it is called English because it was invented (developed) in England), who has spent a lifetime developing, cultivating and updating his literary competence in many far-flung parts of globe becoming familiar with the language in all its flavours (including US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, East Africa, and points between) and developing skills in editing and proofreading (Chicago / Oxford / MLA / APA 5 / APA 6 / AMS / IEEE / Harvard / Vancouver / Elsevier styles, and plain, old-fashioned Queens English, among others). Corrected output can be returned in MS Word format (with "track changes", sidebar comments and advice) for all changes, or in Latex typeset format with native raw code and PDF output depending on the client's choice. All house style requirements are strictly adhered to in either case. Citing and language are in accordance with accepted modern style standards. My core competence lies in taking a literary product or service then polishing until it shines so you can see your reflection, and these services are offered to help clients effectively and efficiently produce an ideal "final product". I am currently seeking opportunities where my high competence in written / spoken English (all varieties), multifaceted business skills, and extensive experience with current communication facilities could be used for mutual benefit.

    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.
