    As a hard working, self motivated freelancer, I have built communication through written and visual mediums for over 15 years. I am a creative, detail-oriented individual who has excellent problem-solving skills and a great turn-around time. I am fastidious about details while proofreading and editing. As an experienced creative and technical writer, I take a project from the research and rough draft stage through final proofreading and editing. I have organized and managed a team of writers and was responsible for meeting team deadlines. I will read your work and turn it into a masterpiece that accomplishes the goals you have. I stay in communication about your project to your satisfaction. I also illustrate. I am an excellent member of a team and work just as well independently. Over the last year, I was an editor and project manager. I collaborated on and edited several e-books, short-stories, buying guides, web content for four online businesses, as well as ghost wrote books on several subjects. Over the last 10 years, I have written curriculum and content for 11 classes in academic subjects, as well as self-improvement. When I work for you, your project is my top priority. I want my work to be something that we can both be proud of.  less

    "Work of top quality delivered in a timely manner from Peter. Peter really understands your needs and how your content will be used. He writes in the most appropriate way and find the right expressions for it. Very good communication and cooperation through the process. If there is something missing, he'll be happy to complement the work. Highly recommended." I am native German translator, proofreader and lector and this is 1 of 145 feedbacks/180 jobs done 2014 more below. Additional to my job as translator I worked as copywriter for two German advertising agencies, as lector for German eBooks and as book author (novels and movie scripts). During my work as copywriter I learnt to write text that sells. And when the internet started I learnt HTML, SEO rules and to use Trados and other software. Nowadays I translate for translation offices and improve German text written by Germans. As translator I work for several professional translation offices. In this capacity I translated novels from US Bestseller authors, contracts for GE, descriptions for Microsoft, manuals for WEBFocus and much more. I have written and published 5 books in German. I know HTML from basic to extended and ensure that the formatting of your website remains the same - what is important for you or your client! I am skilled in SEO and can translate websites with keywords, headers and html-tags in mind, what is necessary for optimal search-engine ranking. I work with and have Indesign, Acrobat, Corel, Pagemaker, Trados 2011 and a lot of other software to put your text in the right form and without breaking the original format. In my profile you might see "26 jobs in progress". Don`t worry about that. These are regular customers who have not closed the contract because they work with me on ongoing basis, submit text time by time and add milestones. It does not mean that I do not have time for new jobs. Here are some feedbacks from 2014. Well, with more than 180 jobs in oDesk and 57 in Elace there are a lot more feedbacks but I have selected those showing more than a few words and where clients provided more specific comments. "A very responsive and responsible translator, completed the work much ahead of time, as well as the one round of comments which he also considered positively. Great communication, would gladly hire Hans-Peter again." An excellent freelancer. We already worked several time with him and never had any reason to complain: ´high quality work even on short deadlines and with technical texts (web industry). I highly recommend Peter for your proofreading in german :)" "Hans-Peter did a very professional translation for our site. If you are looking for a reliable translator, hire him!" Hans-Peter Pressmar delivers a good quality translation or proofread. He is precise and delivers the job on time. He is clear in communication and worth a recommendation. +++++!" "not the cheapest, but very high quality, speed and straight forward in communication. Highly appreciated" This is the second or third time we have called upon Hans-Peter to assist on sensitive translation projects. He is very responsive and dedicated. We will continue to call on the linguist for his help!" Speedy, professionally, perfect and very polite communication. Top-service for oDesk." "Well Done, On time delivery. Good communications. I would like to work with Hans-Peter again Highly Recommended !" "Hans-Peter was very diligent in his work. It's evident that he takes pride in the quality of his deliverables. I appreciated his efforts." "He is very professional, provided 2 variations even though I didn't ask. Understands the goal of proper translation, and provides great services at a fast turnaround. Highly recommended Odesk contractor!" "Very precise. We esp. advise Hans for the larger jobs with higher budget. He is quick and looks further than the average translator to find problems and solves them." Peter was my only best hope. I couldn't have asked for a better job. Did an amazing job of translating a very long page & no one could have done better." "very quick, good quality translation ... eine schnelle und gute Übersetztung "Excellent translator - delivered a technical German translation of over 10,000 words promptly and diligently. Would definitely use again. Thank you for your help."  less
