Nancy Moore

Writer/editor

United States - Last active: 07/23/2012 - Tests: 6

I have been a creative writer since childhood, but only for my own enjoyment. Several years ago I started my own copy editing business, Get It Write!, wherein I provided only editing services. Shortly thereafter, I was asked to be the cover story writer for a local magazine, Matthews Living, which grew and evolved into South Charlotte Living Magazine. My role with the magazine expanded to writing a travel article, as well as an additional general interest article on the topic of my choice. In January 2012 I assumed the role of chief executive editor of the magazine and oversee the creative side, as well as the sales side. The magazine is published bimonthly and I am looking for other editing/writing opportunities to fill the gap, so to speak. I addition, I am an elected official in the town of Matthews, NC, serving as a town commissioner.

Bilingual Support Manager - Expert Translator (EN-...

Argentina - Last active: 12/23/2013 - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 9

My objective is ideally to find a long-term (Part-time or Full time) job where I can work from home in the translation, customer service, or Graphic Design field. Thanks to oDesk, I've had the joy of working for some amazing companies as a Bilingual Support Manager (ES-EN) for the past 2 years. Before moving to oDesk I worked as a Dish Network Rep. here in Argentina for the States and personal translator/secretary for my employer who handled these US Dish Network Accounts for 5 years. I also worked as a law firm secretary, I'm a Law student and I'm working to obtain my Juris Doctor. My native tongue is Spanish, however, I was raised up in Columbus, Ohio so my English is fluent and I'd be more than happy to offer a voice call demonstration on Skype or any other available voice call service to verify my pronunciation and common knowledge of both languages. I have taken the Spanish- English Translation tests here on oDesk and I'm in the TOP 10% of test takers. I'm very responsible with due dates and easy to get a hold of online if anything should come up. I'm in the -3 GMT Time zone and available during US office hours. Well, that's about it! Feel free to browse around my profile or get in touch with me - I'm a proud 5 star contractor! Hope to work with you soon!
