    I put your ideas into words. A writer writes, and a professional writer writes with the client in mind. I've written professionally for years in many fields from the technical to the imaginative. Whether I'm writing or editing an e-book, creating a manual, revising or ghostwriting your novel, or even posting to a blog I keep one thing in mind: Presenting your ideas to the reader. My job is to write transparently; to use words so that the reader only notices what I'm saying, not how I'm saying it. I'm there to be a bridge between your thoughts and the reader's mind.  less

    Don’t let the title mislead you. As the Merchant of Words, I’m not related to the Merchant of Venice. To be honest, Shakespeare never appealed to me. Neither did academics. Thus, I just about managed to complete my schooling – or let’s just say that my teachers got fed up of me. After all, I was an immense strain on their conscience. It couldn’t have been easy deciding where I deserved fractional marks for an answer i.e. a 0.3 here or a 0.6 there etc., could it? Suffice it to say that my academic success in school resembled a village after a Mongol raid. A few years later, I began working as a software developer. In that time, I learnt that I could create software for an accounting system. Considering that all I knew about accounting was the definition of debit and credit, it was an educational achievement on the job. I also learned how to travel to various parts of the city. An online job that taught me several offline things! Later, I found myself applying for an executive position to answer e-mail queries sent by Amazon.com’s customers. However, the powers that were thought I was a glutton for punishment. Therefore, they made me a Quality Editor instead. I handled the responses for the escalation e-mail queues. I also trained and audited e-mail responses for 15 executives. A relocation ended this brief but enlightening dalliance. My next assignment was as a back office executive in insurance processing. I processed transactions related to insurance cover. In some time, my supervisors realised that my innocent smiles (certainly not my good looks!) lay behind all their troubles. So they gave me charge of a team, of a process and of a client relationship too. From indexing scanned images of insurance claims related post to recovering money from at-fault third parties, my team did it all. Sadly, they also did me in… I finally turned to becoming a freelance content developer: writing about things I hadn’t heard of or seen, for clients I hadn’t ever seen (or ever would, for that matter!) at places I didn’t even know existed. After such an extensive background, can I really write? Well, in over 16 years of experience that is the only thing I’ve done. See how: • As a software developer, I WROTE computer programs and manuals • As a quality editor, I WROTE e-mails and responses • As an executive in back office processing, I WROTE manuals, desktop procedures and white papers • As a team leader, I WROTE policies, manuals, emails, white papers etc. • As a content developer, I WRITE articles, blogs, website content, product descriptions etc. So what’s common across: softWare – auditOr – data-entRy – team leaDer and writing Stuff fulltime? The answer is simple: All of them deal in WORDS…that express what needs to be done in the best way possible…  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
