Multi-Media Journalist, Writer, and Artist

United States - Last active: 24 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.

Denmark - Last active: 11 days ago - Tests: 4

Hi I'm Emil Madsen Aaby, a danish writer, translator and video editor, currently living in and working from Berlin, Germany. I have always been extremely interested in writing. It has always seemed natural to me to get an idea, put it down on paper and see what it would turn into from there on. Writing is definetely what I want to work with in the future, therefore I will start studying Journalism at the Danish Media and Journalist school in Aarhus beginning in february 2015. I have an ear for languages, classes in different languages have always been my favorites in school, which is also one of the reasons why I live in Berlin now, to improve on both my German and English skills. I am a reliable, committed and hard-working employee, who will deliver what is expected of me and hopefully more. I am structured and will always meet deadlines on time, as I am also flexible with working all days of the week and on holidays.

Max Deryagin

Certified Russian Translator & Subtitler

Russia - Last active: 5 days ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 12

Hello! My name is Max, and I am a full-time freelance translator and subtitler located in Perm, Russia. I have more than 5 years of successful home-based working under my belt, including hundreds of completed projects and a healthy fivescore of delighted clients. Wordplay junkie, fervent reader, grammar stickler, zealous wordsmith—that is who I am. Honest, principled and reliable, I always meet deadlines and deliver only excellent translations. Over the last few years I have collaborated with a great number of independent and corporate clients on a wide spectrum of translation projects, and all my clients were either delighted or satisfied, and never disappointed. I have been admitted to a network of screened professionals in translation—ProZ.com Certified PRO Network—which means my proficiency in translation has been confirmed by the staff of the world's largest online platform for professional translators. In addition, I am proficient in subtitling, and I have a firm grasp of the latest technologies and software products in the field. I make all subtitles in strict conformity with the standards proposed by the European Association for Studies in Screen Translation (ESIST). I always guarantee on-time delivery and take on only those projects that I am 100% sure I can execute to the highest standard. I am invariably open and honest to clients about my qualifications, work experience and business record, and I am only interested in healthy and lawful collaboration based on trust. I see my clients not as bosses but as partners—I help them expand to new markets, and in turn they help me financially, making our working relationship a win-win. When translating, I use conventional dictionaries, glossaries and thesauri—KudoZ, Multitran, ABBYY Lingvo.Pro, Merriam-Webster, Oxford, Collins Cobuild etc—to ensure accuracy and consistency in my work. Because I completed the Power Searching with Google course, through which I learned advanced techniques for internet searching, I can accurately translate a text that contains rare, archaic or recently coined words and phrases not present in dictionaries. Sometimes, when a certain term’s definition or translation cannot be found via internet search queries, I directly contact an expert in the source text’s subject, and ask for an interview. When working on a project, I keep my client informed on the status of the assignment by reporting the amount of work completed on a regular basis. I am online 15/7, including holidays, so I am immediately available to answer your questions and respond promptly if something happens on your end. When the work is done, I double-proofread my translation, perfect it, correct grammar and formatting errors, and only then hand it over to the client. So far I have received only positive client feedback.
