I’ve written for many notable clients on oDesk on a long-term basis including Travelocity, Trefis, and Worldstart, as well as numerous individual clients. My feedback scores speak for themselves, as does the amount of money I have earned on this platform alone. My skills include writing, editing, and project management. I’ve worked in a variety of environments both online and offline, and have proven myself as an intelligent and dependable worker and leader. I’m a well-educated, highly motivated individual who has put more than my fair share of blood and sweat into my work.

    I just finished my studies of mathematics with focus on physics and computer sciences in Iceland. Next to my studies, I have been programming already for several years on a freelance basis and provide professional translation services. The programs that I created so far mostly are GUI applications under Windows, as well as web-based applications using PHP and javascript. In addition to these experiences, I have also intensive knowledge of C/C++, Matlab, R, and various other programming languages. You can see some of my programs in my portfolio and on my website. In addition to being a programmer, I have also several years of experience as a translator. As a German native speaker, I mostly translate from English to German, and occasionally from German to English. I have lived abroad for more than three years now, and therefore know a couple of other languages as well. These include French, Icelandic, Swedish, Dutch and Bulgarian. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Best wishes, Tom Schiller  less

    I have been translating and proofreading for a couple of years now, but I am still new to oDesk, so I appreciate the opportunity to enhance my profile here. I love translations and I enjoy learning about different topics and new things through the jobs I do. I am a balanced German-English bilingual and I love working with these languages and focusing on their subtleties and intricacies. German is my mother tongue but I lived in the US for quite a while so I am comfortable translating from and into both languages. In 2006, I started studying English, Social Studies and Education at the University of Cologne where I am currently working on my Ph.D. in American Literature. Furthermore, I have an Master's Degree in Comparative Literature from the University of Rochester where I also taught German 101 and 102 classes.  less
