    I’m a Brazilian native speaker specialized in translating mobile apps, desktop software, websites, web applications, technical documents (webinars, presentations, user guides, white papers, and so on). Translate your texts from English to Brazilian Portuguese with an experienced technical, native speaker translator. Expand the reach of your business and products to Brazil and other countries! Over the years I’ve translated contents from most diverse subjects such as farming, architecture, health, accounting and software programming. I translate manually (no automatic translation) most common document formats, such as Excel spreadsheets, Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, HTML files/templates, XML files, Poedit files, resource strings, plain text, etc. I can use translation/localization tools like Trados Studio or Sisulizer too, in case the client has them. I’m a senior software developer who loves to localize software and translate technical documents. My extensive experience designing, programming, documenting and using desktop, web and mobile apps let me support even the tricky translation of HTML, XML and sentences with macros/placeholders without messing with your final text. Check my reputation, portfolio, work history and feedback from previous clients. Lets translate your English texts!  less

    Hello! As a Belgian citizen, I am a NATIVE DUTCH SPEAKER. I am a 26 year old student, working towards a Masters Degree in Cultural Studies. Prior to this, I finished a Bachelors Degree in JOURNALISM. Currently I'm working for the Brussels correspondence office of the JAPANESE NEWSPAPER 'MAINICHI SHIMBUN'. It is the third largest newspaper in Japan with more than 4 million readers. I follow up press conferences, write reports and translate documents from English to Dutch and vice versa. During my studies as a journalist, I did multiple internships. I worked for the national media station of the Basque Country (Spain) EiTB, where I wrote articles in English and French. Besides that I did an internship at a Belgian film magazine. My job was to write reviews and news articles, and to do proofreading and copywriting. Over the last year, I have done MULTIPLE TRANSLATION JOBS for Lingotek, Language Insight and Appen Butler Hill, as well as some smaller projects (apps, websites, ...). I have written many articles, essays, papers, emails and more in English. I can honestly say I master the language quite well. I've taken the oDesk English to Dutch translation test and scored a 100%. Keywords to highlight my skills are SPEED, FLEXIBILITY and ACCURACY. I'm available 24/7, and maintain GOOD COMMUNICATION with my employers. Thank you for your attention, I hope you take my application into consideration. Regards, Michael Peeters  less

    A copywriter with 12 years' experience, I am a graduate from Berghs School of Communication in Stockholm. This is Sweden's premier marketing academy, only accepting a select few art direction and copywriting students each year. In 2001, my first year of studies, one of the lecturers, Steve Trygg of renowned B2B agency SandbergTrygg saw some of my work and immediately offered me full-time employment. Still wanting to graduate from Berghs, I ended up working part time at SandbergTrygg Stockholm head quarters, at the time Sweden's largest B2B agency, in parallel with my studies. Upon graduation, I took a full-time copywriter position with SandbergTrygg, working on accounts such as Telia, marketing everything from mobile selling solutions to trans-Atlantic fibre-optic network services; Saab Scania Trucks, producing internal policy manuals and giving strategic advice; and Neonet, selling electronic stock-trading software. In 2003, whilst on holiday in Australia, I came in contact with an advertising agency in Cairns, Adpower, who offered to sponsor my Australian residency. Loving Australia, I jumped at this opportunity, and soon found myself working on a mix of B2B and B2C accounts such as Stockland Shopping Centres, Tourism Tropical North Queensland, Pacific Toyota, Cairns Convention Centre and Medtel medical software. I stayed with Adpower until 2006, when I started my freelance business, and have since worked for clients such as Rio Tinto, The Maavarim Group, City West Water, R2 Human Resources, CEC Group, Mefoto, Mediapower, Coral Cay Weddings, Enteract and Ekarda. Since 2011, I am based out of Elwood, Melbourne, Australia. References are available on request. Most importantly, though, is this: IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY WITH MY WORK, YOU DON'T PAY A CENT. You have zero to lose and stand to win a great asset for your organisation (speaking of which, don't forget to specify whether you want Australian English for your organisation or American English for your organization). As for my hourly rate, you get what you pay for. If you want mediocre copy at a dirt-cheap rate, go somewhere else. If you want excellent copy at an excellent rate, come to me. And contact me if your client's budget is tight or you need a fixed price. You will find that I am quite flexible when I am not too busy. Kind regards, Paul Walden  less
