French and English Linguist
Last active: 7 days ago
My goal on oDesk is to use my expertise in writing and my mastering of both French and English to give a hand to people who need translation work done.
I am very fluent in the two languages; French is my primary one and I started learning English at a young age. Mistakes are easy for me to spot and correct, as I was editor-in-chief of a music website (written in American English) for over three years and had to look over 1,100+ articles and interviews, which I also transcribed.
I promise to work in a cooperating manner and make sure the client is fully satisfied with my output.
