    Greetings, My name is Max, and I’m a full-time freelance translator/subtitler located in Perm Krai, Russia. I have over 4 years of successful home-based working under my belt, including hundreds of completed projects and a healthy fivescore of delighted clients. Wordplay junkie, fervent reader, grammar stickler, zealous wordsmith—that's who I am. Articulate, erudite and reliable, I never miss deadlines and never deliver half-baked translations. Always flawless and always on time. I am ranked 3rd in the catalog of literary translators at free-lance.ru among hundreds, which guarantees top-notch quality of work. On top of that, I'm proficient in subtitling and have a firm grasp of the latest technologies and software products in the field. I make all subtitles in strict conformity with the standards proposed by the European Association for Studies in Screen Translation (ESIST). I have been admitted to a network of screened professionals in translation—ProZ.com Certified PRO Network. That means my proficiency in translation has been confirmed by the staff of the world's largest online platform for professional translators. Over the last four years I’ve collaborated with a great number of independent and corporate clients on a wide spectrum of translation projects and none were disappointed. As a translator, I always guarantee on-time delivery and take on only those projects that I'm 100% sure I can execute to the highest standard. I am invariably open and honest to clients about my qualification, experience and business record, and I’m only interested in healthy and lawful collaboration based on trust. I see my clients not as bosses but as partners—I help them expand to new markets, and in turn they help me financially, making our working relationship a win-win. When working on a project, I keep my client informed on the status of the assignment by reporting the amount of work completed on a regular basis. When translating, I use conventional dictionaries, glossaries and thesauri—KudoZ, Multitran, ABBYY Lingvo.Pro, Merriam-Webster, Oxford, Collins Cobuild etc—to ensure accuracy and consistency in my work. Because I completed the Power Searching with Google course, through which I learned advanced techniques for internet searching, I can accurately translate a text that contains rare, archaic or newly coined words and phrases not present in dictionaries. Sometimes, when a certain term’s definition or translation cannot be found via internet search queries, I directly contact an expert in the source text’s subject, and ask for an interview. I am online 15/7, including holidays, so I’m immediately available to answer your questions and respond promptly if something happens on your end (force majeure). When the work is done, I double-proofread my translation, perfect it, correct grammar and formatting errors, and only then hand it over to the client. So far I have received only positive reviews.  less

    My excellent written and oral communication skills are complemented with being very proficient in the online presentation program Prezi along with Microsoft Powerpoint, Word, Excel and Access. Currently, I am also learning graphic design and photo editing in Photoshop. I am also very versed in the language of the corporate world along with the concepts and ideas of marketing and the development and execution of an effective integrated marketing communications plan. I am a self-driven Marketing Major who can easily adapt to new environments and assignments. I currently hold a 3.4 GPA excelling in most courses associated with Marketing, business management and computer applications. With this said, I believe I am knowledgeable in these areas of corporate culture. If you are worried that I may be too busy to complete your work, I can guarantee you that during each DAY of the week I have at least 6-12 hours of free time when I am available which means I have plenty of time to ensure you that your work is done and done right. Powerpoint and Prezi: As you can imagine, I have made many visually appealing Prezi and Powerpoint presentations and possess the creativity and technological skills along with very flexible hours, making me the perfect applicant to suit your Powerpoint and Prezi needs. I can also use a combination of symbolic pictures, different fonts and backgrounds to create a visually stimulating presentation while still including the informative aspects. With that being said, it is notable that I have become very proficient in Prezi and Powerpoint, creating and organizing entertaining presentations over the years. Articles: When writing for my assignments, I have always had to bear in mind that my work might be sent to a plagiarism site to check for its authenticity and if a certain level of plagiarism is reached, I would be expelled from my institution. This ensured that all my work submitted was 100% original and as such I would treat your work the same dignity and respect that it deserves. Although I am very educated and capable of writing academic articles, I have always believed that simplicity is the best way to show true intelligence and therefore, my writing is usually more of an average, conversational tone but can write professionally based on your preference. Below are the links to the most recent Prezis that I have created: http://prezi.com/czrfm34vm0p0/prosperity-ventures-llc/?kw=view-czrfm34vm0p0&rc=ref-30557307 http://prezi.com/uk8-cdw9phso/genesis-revenue-partners/?auth_key=9a914c5998b48c8fa4f0b893d764a002ce129830&kw=view-uk8-cdw9phso&rc=ref-30557307 The examples bellow are incomplete but by now you should get the basic idea of what I am capable of: http://prezi.com/cjrp6loomxle/case-2-solutions/?kw=view-cjrp6loomxle&rc=ref-6010497 http://prezi.com/qem602ph2evk/managerial-communication/?kw=view-qem602ph2evk&rc=ref-6010497 Transcription: For transcription jobs I utilize the Express scribe program with an avg of 12 hours turn-around per audio/video hour.  less
