    I have been a freelancer since december 2006, working in a variety of projects, from Audio design, to video editing, going through PHP programming, photo retouching and landing in translation. I have a partial degree in Film, which makes me knowledgeable in multimedia management, and I'm very passionate about it, however, my best work is delivered in writing. I have a background in publishing, having worked as an editor for a local publishing house for several years, and although English is not my native language, my knowledge is that of a native speaker, being completely fluent both in written and spoken form. I love writing in a variety of subjects (mainly creative, although technical is welcome too) and also enjoy translation, from English to Spanish and viceversa. My rate is 0.015 USD per word, for writing, and 0.01 for translation and I can deliver up to 6000 translated words or 4000 written words per day. First time using Odesk and eager to make a lasting impression, as well as developing excellent relationships with employers that will be profitable for both parts.  less

    My objective is to assist any organization with my particular skills as a creative influence in any endeavor involving the effective manipulation of the written word. I am rather proficient on the editing, proofing, and enhancement side of things – if it’s broken, I fix it, and in ways that would stun the author of the ‘original’ content. If I am light on the knowledge side, I research. Whatever I can find, I turn it into something far better than what I found. You can surely imagine what I am asked to ‘fix’ here on oDesk, given what this very competitive market generally requires as far as quality or production value is concerned.
