    I'm an experienced copy editor and translator. I work with Russian, which is my native language, English and Spanish, as well as with German (I can translate only written texts from German). My working experience is mostly linked with Russian online media, including those in English. My latest job was at TASS news agency, where I supported and edited the website's English version since the relaunch of its new design in 2013. I have a master's degree in journalism and I know the online media lexicon and environment pretty well. I can proofread and edit texts in Russian and English, and do translations, as I've mentioned above.  less

    Hi, my name is Chevaun Roux. I am graduate from Stellenbosch University with a BA in Value and Policy Studies. My writer profession started as soon as I graduated from university and have spent years writing about any and every topic under the sun- whether these were short emotive pieces, product pieces, whether it meant writing marketing e-books for overseas clients, or creating stimulating content for website owners. The practice of editing and proofreading falls within my domain of work as well, which also includes every topic imaginable. I am able to write with fluidity and ease, and have the ability to make words and thoughts flow into each other without breaking the feel of the piece. In the world of freelancing there are certain things that have to be taken into account all the time in order to produce something of superiority in this competitive world- this is namely punctuality and quality. Without these two key factors completed works would not have the same effect and standing as they should. Producing something of a high standard that meets a deadline are two key points in creating and releasing a final product. Writing is a wildly creative and interesting undertaking and I try to harness these features in every article I write, or in every piece of work that I edit. It is my belief that with these notions in mind every work I deliver will be compelling, accurate, inventive and worthwhile.  less

    Hello! As a 20 year old student living in Slovenia (Europe), which is at the moment in a really bad shape, since the economy crisis started in 2008, I am searching for alternative sources of income. After a short research, I have concluded, that having an online job would be a solution to my problems, since it would allow me to stay in Slovenia, attend all of the classes on Faculty, and still earn money. I finished high school with good grades, and am currently enroled in Faculty of Economics, University of Ljubljana, in Marketing course in English language. As a frequent traveler, I can relate to different cultures, and multiple points of view, which would allow me to think outside the box aswell as offer a unique perspective on the problem. I am an experienced user of the web, and text, presentation and spreadsheet editing (Word, Powerpoint, Excel), I am also able to type with 10 fingers, without watching the keyboard, and of multitasking. However, I am eager to learn any new required skills, that an employer would require me to learn, on any field of expertise. I am also fluent in English, Slovenian, Croatian, Serbian, Bosnian language, and have some knowledge of German language. Any questions that you might have, regarding my skills or personal life, you can ask through a private message, or e-mail me at nal.kosir@gmail.com Thank you for your attention, Nal Košir  less

    I am a graduate of Waldorf College (IA) and Brooks College (CA). I am results-driven and goal-oriented, with over 15 years of experience in professional writing and illustration. I am confident in declaring that I will meet and exceed your expectations. My commercial success lies in the realm of entertainment and comedy. However, I draw from a wealth of knowledge obtained through an "eclectic" background and history. I have additional experience in web design and have been running a successful site for over five years. I started copy writing and toy design in the mid 90's, but have run the gamut of "situational gigs" in order that I might broaden my expertise and become an indispensable asset to those who need my assistance. I look forward to hearing from you.  less
