    I am a student of veterinary medicine maintaining a 4.0 GPA. Being naturally methodical, organized, and diligent means that all tasks I choose to undertake will meet perfection! I am also an immensely versatile writer, able to expertly write in any niche with a limited amount of research. In reality, my rating and feedback will speak louder than a plump portfolio or this attempt at a comprehensive overview. Thank you for your time.  less

    With a keen artistic eye, and competence in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, I am able to effectively edit RAW and JPEG images. I also perform the painstaking task of culling/selecting the best images from thousands of images at a time. I believe that gentle and subtle adjustments can make big improvements in an image--my aim is for a natural finish. Most of my clients are professional portrait and wedding photographers from Europe, South and North America. My occasional work as a semi-professional wedding photographer has given me additional insight that helps me to quickly understand the treatment that a client desires for his/her photographs. I'm continually upgrading my skills, and also offer intermediate beauty retouching. Outsource your image post-processing work to me; I guarantee top-notch work with reasonable turnaround and excellent communication.  less

    “Quality work-reasonable rates”–That’s my motto! I always strive to provide unique content of great quality, in a timely manner, and at reasonable rates.

    Over the last two years I have provided translation and writing services in several fields. I have worked with texts related to business, law, fitness, gambling, weight loss, and others. My area of expertise, however, lies in Brazilian / Portuguese / French literatures and linguistics, and in this field I am capable of writing papers and doing tasks that normally would require a degree. Moreover, I have strong research skills that enable me to find the right terminology when it comes to translation, and the accurate information if it is about writing new copy. As I am Brazilian and live in Brazil, my translations are done primarily from English and French into Portuguese. I can use Portuguese (preferably) and English (for academic / nonfiction content) in my writings. I have a good command of MS Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). My CAT Tools are two: OmegaT, and Wordfast Anywhere. In addition to translation and writing, I have experience in the following areas: proofreading of Portuguese texts, language teaching, direct sales, localization, and ghostwriting. Thank you for visiting my profile.  less

    Hi ! I am 24 years old. Arabic is my mother tongue, French is my second language and English is my favorite. I have been fully bilingual (Tunisian Arabic - French) since preparatory school and started studying English at the age of 10. English has been the primary language of instruction I have been exposed to for the last 4 academic years and is now, along with (Standard) Arabic and French, the language I translate to and from. I have a Licence in English and am now a translation Master's student. My current studies focus on the (Standard) Arabic/English language pair. However, you will notice that I have been focusing more on the French/English language pair as far as my oDesk work history is concerned. I have recently started learning Japanese in the hopes of enriching my linguistic experience. I have also acquired significant experience in transcription and subtitling and in using several transcription (InqScribe, ExpressScribe), online platform (Amara) and video editing software. My portfolio is at your service!  less
