Native English Speaker, Proofreader, Creative Writ...

United Kingdom - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 7

SKILLS: - Native speaker of English, excellent English skills, both written and oral. - Documents will be changed with all necessary improvements, with careful attention to spelling, punctuation, grammar, sentence structure and context. - Communication with clients via email whenever needed. My passion for English has led me down the route of proofreading, writing and the academic study of English Literature. Throughout my entire academic career I have often proofread a number of professional applications and academic papers.These include university personal statements, professional business letters and master's degree level essays. Additionally,I have had previous experience as a volunteer teaching assistant, whereby I have taught children aged 11 to 15 basic mathematics. I also have daily practice of my proofreading skills through the language learning website Lang-8.com, whereby I edit user submissions and explain my corrections in a clear and concise manner to non native speakers of English.

Editor, Writer, FR-EN Translator

United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 10

My facility with words derives from a love of literature and a background in French, teaching English, and editing. Over the past 7 years, I've had the opportunity to work with a variety of texts, from academic papers to blogs to web content to novels, and various style guides, including AP, APA, MLA, and Chicago. Though my heart lies in fiction, I'm equally at home with non-fiction; my particular interest areas include sociology, anthropology, psychology, environmental issues, healthy living, nutrition, women's studies, feminist theory, queer theory, critical theory, and critical race theory. However, I welcome all types of texts. Let me help make your pen indeed mightier than the sword, whether it is simply proofreading for small errors or copy editing/line editing to improve structure, flow, word choice, clarity, coherence, and the like. With me, your texts and documents are in good hands.

EXPERT Bilingual ENGLISH/FRENCH/U.K. ENG. Translat...

France - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 21 - Portfolio: 8

As a French native state-employed English Teacher for quite a number of years, I can provide accurate translations from English into standard French from FRANCE, and the other way round. I worked for "Gengo.com" for a year only, but unlike them, so far, I can translate into genuine UK English all types of documents at the rate of $0.06/word, that can be as low as $0.04 for high volumes starting from 3,000 words ( and $0.08/word for technical and legal translation jobs), and my test- results speak for themselves. Given my background, I can deliver truly academic, as well as audience-oriented translations. However, I now refuse to translate content for e-commerce sites selling illegal products in FRANCE, as the shoppers would have problems with the French customs, or even worse, with the police. I also refuse to proofread what appears to be plain machine-translation or clearly post-edited machine translation jobs, from either other contractors (you should just ask for a refund!) or customers. Fair enough, isn't it? Now, please have a look at my portfolio, and you will see what I mean! Finally, I now have experience in simultaneous 3-way translation over the phone (see my profile).

Multi-Media Journalist, Writer, and Artist

United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4

I'm a professional multi-media journalist who can write, edit, research, produce, and design high-quality content on almost any topic and for any medium. From creating blog and social media posts to complete marketing communications plans, I have worked with clients including university programs, acupuncturists, chefs, commercial painters, e-commerce sites, news sites and forums, and more. I do not compromise my high ethical standards. Sorry, but I do not accept jobs that involve "ghostwriting" without credit, "spinning" and stealing others' copyrighted work, or other shady practices. What you get with me is a passionate, hard-working, detail-oriented, mass communications expert. What you do not get is someone who will rush the job or be a mindless "yes man" -- if I accept a job then I am committing to give you my best work effort, and that includes sometimes offering suggestions or advice -- getting you the final product you NEED, not just the one you think you want. I generally do not do Skype interviews or meetings for any projects paying less than $1,000. I am happy to answer any questions through ODesk or email, and I am happy to do a trial period for any ongoing positions. Sorry, but the reason I choose to do online freelancing is to make my own schedule and work in my pajamas; if you can't deal with that then best of luck finding someone who is a better fit for you.

Tech-savvy sociologist

United States - Last active: 1 day ago

I have a Ph.D. in Sociology, and I enjoy the opportunity to keep my writing and research skills sharp by working with others on projects that can take advantage of my academic background. My concentrations are in qualitative research methods, social movements, and sociology of emotions; a recent lit-review project has also given me a broad background in Network theory. My passion is helping other conduct great research! Besides my academic training, my work history and general computer/video game geek-ery has resulted in me being well-versed in most common software applications and a smorgasbord of random skills (Google Adwords intergration, web development/design, UI principals, etc.). The way I usually put it is that no matter the setting, I'm the one everyone goes to with their computer problems. I also worked for a patent lawyer for a few years, so I'm pretty familiar with US patent law, particularly post-grant litigation (and I helped write reexam arguments).
