Jessie Q.

Freelance Writer/Translator

United States - Last active: 13 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 6

I have three bachelors of arts in English, European Studies, and Chinese Literature. I am a hard working, intelligent and extremely dedicated individual with expertise in writing, editing, and translation. I have previous work experiences in sales, teaching, and legal assistance, giving me an edge in writing contents or articles for these specific fields. I am a native English speak with absolute fluency in Mandarin. I have studied in Paris, therefore have basic French communication skills. I have traveled and worked in China and most parts of Europe, and can therefore offer more in-depth writing. I am seeking editing, translating, content writing, and any other writing or illustration related work. I have written three thesis while in school and understand how to write and edit research papers or any research related writing. I am also adept in translating from English to Chinese and vise versa. I have done translation work for both legal firms and private companies (mainly dealing with purchase and contracts). My typing speed is approximately 80 words per minute and can translate approximately 2 pages per hour depending on density and complexity. I am also qualified in editing and checking for spelling, grammar, and general formatting mistakes. I can work most hours during the week, including weekends. Although I live in PST, I can accommodate certain times and people based on my freelance schedule. I can be reached easily by either email or Skype. If the need ever arises, I live in Southern California and can schedule meetings as well.

Multi-Media Journalist, Writer, and Artist

United States - Last active: 20 days 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.
