Get Your Proofreading Project Started Today!

Post your proofreading and grammar-checking project on oDesk and hire proof readers and book editors with excellent grammar skills. You will also find professionals who have experience with proofreading software (like grammar and plagiarism checkers) and editing tools (like Microsoft Word’s “track changes” feature) to check the spelling, grammar and vocabulary of your documents. With accuracy and attention to detail, they can proofread business proposals, marketing materials and tech reports; review your articles, blog or website content; or correct book translations and audio transcriptions.

Proofreading is the process of reading through an electronic copy (or galley proof) of a piece of written work to detect and correct errors before it is published. On oDesk, the world’s largest online workplace, you will find native English speakers and proofreaders familiar with editing marks and the APA, MLA, Harvard and Chicago style guidelines to provide you with professional editing, grammar checking and proofreading services.

    I am a native Spanish speaking translator and proofreader from Chile providing linguistic services for a translation company specializing in economic/legal texts, in which I have officially translated important documents for distinguished Chilean companies. However, I have experience translating, among others, literary, medical, engineering, tourism, and psychology texts. I have PROFESSIONAL and ACADEMIC proficiency in semantics, linguistics, English/Spanish grammar, syntax, spelling, terminology, editing, translation itself and other fields relating to translation, allowing me to produce completely fluent, coherent and cohesive texts. I capitalize "professional" and "academic" since, unlike many contractors on oDesk who offer English/Spanish translation services, I pursued a bachelor's degree in English-Spanish translation, so I do not translate "just because I know English", "have lived abroad" or "simply because I am a native Spanish speaker"; that will be reflected in the outstanding translation quality delivered to you. All your projects will be subjected to a 3-stage process consisting of (1) translation (2) editing and (3) proofreading, guaranteeing optimal quality and client's absolute satisfaction. If facing a tight deadline, my translation capacity can be up to 2,500-3,500 words per day; I have no problem at all if I have to spend a sleepless night in order to satisfy your professional needs. Availability to work on a 365-day basis. Very responsible, perfectionist, and quick and efficient in working, always paying great attention to details in order to produce an immaculate translation. I will be more than glad to do a translation test and/or sample especially for you, so I can show you my professionalism and expertise. Just contact me, and I will give immediate answers!  less
