Freelance Writer/Translator

United States - Last active: 26 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 6

I have three bachelors of arts in English, European Studies, and Chinese Literature. I am a hard working, intelligent and extremely dedicated individual with expertise in writing, editing, and translation. I have previous work experiences in sales, teaching, and legal assistance, giving me an edge in writing contents or articles for these specific fields. I am a native English speak with absolute fluency in Mandarin. I have studied in Paris, therefore have basic French communication skills. I have traveled and worked in China and most parts of Europe, and can therefore offer more in-depth writing. I am seeking editing, translating, content writing, and any other writing or illustration related work. I have written three thesis while in school and understand how to write and edit research papers or any research related writing. I am also adept in translating from English to Chinese and vise versa. I have done translation work for both legal firms and private companies (mainly dealing with purchase and contracts). My typing speed is approximately 80 words per minute and can translate approximately 2 pages per hour depending on density and complexity. I am also qualified in editing and checking for spelling, grammar, and general formatting mistakes. I can work most hours during the week, including weekends. Although I live in PST, I can accommodate certain times and people based on my freelance schedule. I can be reached easily by either email or Skype. If the need ever arises, I live in Southern California and can schedule meetings as well.

Writer/Editor (comedy is my specialty), Actor/Voic...

United States - Last active: 21 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 20

If you need something to be written, particularly something funny or entertaining, I can guarantee it in advance. I work fast and I accept nothing less than my best. I can produce comedy in any form- I write news articles, scripts for sitcoms, films, and short films, websites, etc. I'm also one of the top 5 greatest actors of all-time; most of the voices in that video next to this are mine. There's also a V.O. reel, as well as two editing ones, in my portfolio. I spent two years in Hollywood pursuing comedy writing. In the spring of 2012 I won Best Comedy at the 10th annual DIY Film Festival for a film I made 100% on my own (played every part, was the entire crew). In the past two years, I've published something like 55 videos that've gotten in excess of 20 million views (I've lost track). I do everything for these videos except for the animating. I write the scripts, find the actors, direct them, do my own voice acting (make my wife do voice work, as well), edit the audio, direct my animators (who live in 3rd world countries), edit their animations, and voila- an animation made for a few hundred bucks that 100k people will see in the first month. I wish I didn't have to be a one-man crew (minus the animating), but my standards are too high for amateurs, and professionals are just that- professionals working in the industry (not for freelancers with small, per-episode budgets like me). So, yeah- hire me and whatever it is you need, I'll exceed your expectations. Because if I don't exceed yours, then I haven't met my own. I'm internally motivated- my motivation comes from within. I don't work to get paid, I work to accomplish my goal, which is for my work to blow you away. It's like giving someone a Christmas gift and seeing their eyes light up when they open it- you're like, "yes! Nailed it!" If you get my work and are like, "yeah, this'll do," that's devastating- I want to see those eyes light up and know I nailed it. Oh, and I'm also good at over-explaining stuff. Meaning, I tend to explain more than is necessary to get the point across. In other words, so much explaining that it goes over the amount of explaining that was necessary.

They have the ability to soothe, hypnotize, agitate, or energize. They are a weapon to be used with care and precision, requiring mastery of both pace and tone. Because of my experiences in the film industry, both with screenwriting and physical production, as well as having nearly 8 years of experience in the field of copywriting, I have become accustomed to free flowing creative interaction, and concise and efficient communication. I have also come to appreciate the necessity for candor, criticism, and honesty when deadlines and budgets simply cannot be compromised. Because businesses and sales are moving more and more away from handshaking and into satellite negotiations, companies, perhaps more than ever, need writers who can make connections, evoke emotion, and incite action through the power of the written word. People see too much "advertising," and will not give you long to excite them, which is why good copywriters are direct, persuasive and efficient. The copywriter is the gateway to your potential customers. But today's copywriter must be more than that. They must be part psychologist, part public relations. They have to be able to translate complex thoughts and business jargon into relatable text any layman can grasp. They need to be teachers, and sellers, and friends to your client base. These necessary elements that a copywriter must possess are my strengths. I spent nearly 15 years in the film industry, which taught me politics and persuasion. I'm a trained life coach, which means I know how to read and inspire people. I have contracted and currently contract for companies like Warner Bros., Knot Standard, Cheap Caribbean, American Express, IHG, Travel + Leisure, MapQuest, Ariba and SAP, which means I'm very experienced in high-level marketing and ad copy. I was a full time screenwriter for more than ten years, which means I know how to produce dynamic elements with pace, rhythm and punch. I have written for film, television commercials/one hour dramas, and sitcoms. I have penned one sheets, taglines, synopses, pitches, professional bios, web content, proposals, press releases, SEO laden content, Meta Descriptions and Title Tags, marketing letters, business proposals, radio spots, game reviews, film reviews, :30 second television ads, and feature articles. I have been published many times online and in print and recently did some freelance work for Groupon. I believe I can offer you an excellent resource for fresh new material given the opportunity to do so. If you have a dropbox account, I have an online digital portfolio that is quite hefty. Please let me know and I’ll send you an invite, or be happy to mail you a hard copy of my portfolio at your request. I also have an extensive portfolio and resume on oDesk. I thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Christopher Kusiak CLK Industries
