My place of stay is in Prague and I can be contacted for part- and/or full-time home based opportunities. My skills are useful to the entrepreneur who seeks some assistance with his/her business. I am also cooperating with other freelancers. In case you would like me to control a whole project feel free to contact me as well. I will hire the designated freelancers myself and for you there will be just one contact. I operate under the name Non-stop Strategy. Freelancers I work with and recommend: Kristina Simkova https://www.odesk.com/users/~0142ad7f4d6c105c30 About me: I gained a lot of experience in customer service as I dealt directly with customers face-to-face, by email and by phone. Applicable values as long-term relationship and increasing customer value are standard concepts to me. I am a quick learner (see my reference of Accenture) and I enjoy developing myself. I work easily with set up structures which I try to make my own, and improve to gain better results. I studied Small Business & Retail Management and in this area I gained a lot of knowledge in the past years. It also makes me the person who thinks about your business by showing keen interest. During my recent projects on oDesk I improved my Office (Microsoft/Google) skills significantly. Other software I work(ed) with are Wordpress, GetResponse, AutoRespond, Mailchimp, SurveyMonkey, Gimp, Audacity and basically all Google products. Feel free to contact me in case you have something to share or want to offer. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and I am looking forward to start doing business with you. Best Regards, Freddie

"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.
