    Hi! I'm Natalie. As a technical communicator, I strive to make the complicated seem simple while retaining its richness and depth. I enjoy finding solutions to make written and visual elements work together on the printed page or online. I want to leave everything I touch clearer and more usable than it was before. In anything I design, I love to be involved in the entire process. Creating, editing, and organizing content is my niche. I like to transform creative ideas into writing, combine the text with visual and stylistic elements to enhance the meaning, and produce the document in a format that will best get the intended message out to the audience. Throughout the design process, I try to get into the user’s head to figure out what they will want. When I can present beautiful content in a way the user loves, I feel that I have achieved success. A desire to learn new technologies and use them to improve my work drives me to seek the best solutions. I have worked to master HTML5, CSS, the Adobe Creative Suite, and effective written communication. I have developed multiple websites from scratch, both on a team and as an individual. I am experienced with the Weebly and Squarespace platforms, and I am comfortable writing HTML and CSS code from scratch to make a site responsive. I am excited to accept the challenge of mastering new technologies. To me, being a technical communicator means putting different pieces of a puzzle together to form a seamless image. My proudest moments in my field are when my clients can see the picture form as I put everything together to convey what the image is meant to.  less

    I am French (bilingual italian) and I have been living in Sweden since 2011. I am currently looking for a position corresponding to my experience either as a Writer/ Webmaster/Copywriter/Proofreader or translator /SEO translator (ideally working from home). After an extensive period of training (in Languages, Literature and Multimedia), I have been working for the last 15 years in the Web sector where I held several different positions (webmaster/web editor/writer/proofreader/copywriter). Over the years, I had to face the permanent challenge of adapting my work to ever changing demands from clients while staying as close as possible to the fast-moving requirements of the media sector. This challenge gave me the opportunity to develop and deepen my skills further allowing me to match as closely as possible the ever demanding needs of the sector. Thus, my skills have become over time more technical and graphic-oriented, although the text itself has remained at the core of my work. A genuine sensitivy for literary work - and more generally literature - meant that my professional work has always been guided by a true concern for rigour and conciseness. Finally, I had throughout my life the opportunity to live in different countries and to evolve in various cultural environments. This gave me an ability to adapt quickly to people as well as circumstances and to develop the open-mindedness required in today’s multicultural world.  less
