Native Spanish Translator, Copywriter, Proofreader...

United Kingdom - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 10

I’ve always been fascinated by language; its structure, its ways, its creativity and its never-ending possibilities. That’s why I have a master’s degree in Linguistics and Literature, and why I have formed a solid career on everything regarding text. The most amazing thing? Language never stops to fascinate me! As an English to Spanish translator, I take extreme care in making each text sound exactly as if a native Spanish speaker would have written it. And not only a native speaker, but a professional writer. I'm a copywriter and every text I translate is also a text I copyedit. I understand the true importance of language in getting communication to work, so whether I work with academic, fiction or non-fiction texts, I always make sure that the writing flows clearly and with harmony, capturing the essence in every word, and mostly, the intended meaning of every text. I'll be pleased to answer any further questions you have in order to tackle new translation, copywriting, proofreading or writing projects, so please don’t hesitate in contacting me for any reason!

Academic theologian and writer.

Belgium - Last active: 05/03/2014 - Tests: 4

After I defended my doctoral dissertation, I decided to pursue the path of an independent writer rather than that of a university professor. I look on freelance writing as the way leading in the right direction as well as the means of survival. This is a risky endeavor and unfortunately I cannot afford to be very cheap, but I can promise that the work you will receive from me will not be cheap either. I am not the fastest writer, but I guarantee high degrees of originality and creativity, texts that are accessible also to a wider public and, if required, a unique, passionate style.

Creative/SEO Article writer/researcher

Philippines - Last active: 10 days ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 15

I have been a reader since my father gave me my first Hardy Boys paper back when I was in grade school. From then on, I was never without something to read. My extensive reading formed the backbone of my writing. By college I was already into writing. My resume would include a five year stint with a local news magazine, first as a staff writer and later promoted to the position of Associate Editor. During my days in the publication, I was exposed to various writing styles and discipline. I also have five years of call center experience, which further honed my English communication skills. I started writing for website content and SEO as a part time job. Now I'm dedicating all my time writing and proud of working for myself, on my own time, at home. Much as I love my letters, I also love numbers and that is apparent on my professional orientation as an accountant. I'm also comfortable working on bookkeeping and excel files and template formatting. My aim is to be an asset to every team that I work with.

Finland - Last active: 19 hours ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 1

I'm a writer aspiring to go full-time pro. Though not native English speaker, I've managed to develop my writing skills to great levels and I often get remarks I write better than some natives. Yet I keep pushing my edge and improving my writing every day. The fact that I've built such strong ability in English and speak Finnish natively means that I am capable of translation work as well. I have studied translation theory on my own. I have accounts on other freelancing sites and I have been writing there with good reviews for about a year now. I know I'm a capable writer and I always work extremely hard for people who hire me. Essentially the initial rate I'm putting up is a ridiculous undervaluing of my skills, but I want to be out of the blocks fast on this site. My best suit is fiction writing in all forms, but I'm just as capable of writing any web content or other similar articles. I know sports and fitness very well so that is my strongest subject matter. I've also published my own nutritional ebook on Kindle. You can ask me for the link. Also I am very capable travel writer. Currently I've travelled to 11 countries and spent over 200 days of my life outside of my native Finland. Cities I've been to include, but are not limited to Sao Paulo, Rio De Janeiro, Tokyo, Osaka, Bangkok, Manila, Hong Kong, Macau, Istanbul, Stockholm and Kuala Lumpur. I own two websites of my one, one being a personal development / travel blog and the other being a Finnish fitness site. I also am familiar with the SEO so my writing skills can help you in that regard as well. While writing is what I consider my primary niche, I've garnered a massive pool of experience as a data entry specialist during my nearly two years on oDesk.
