    It was in 2009 when my daughter introduced me to oDesk. She, being a young fulltime mom then, realized how convenient and more rewarding it was to be able to work and at the same time be home and take care of her baby. I have, for more than 25 years, focused my energies on fulltime mothering, homeschooling and ministry myself, so I can't agree with her more. I also find oDesk as a wonderful opportunity to combine my family and ministry roles with my desire to further enhance my personal skills. My experience with oDesk thus far has been very rewarding, in terms of personal growth in knowledge and skills, and also in terms of opportunity to develop good working relationships with clients. My objective is simply to provide high-quality and dependable service. I am a diligent worker, preferring to work independently but delivering quick and timely service.  less

    I believe that anything worth doing is worth doing well and that's how I handle every project I'm assigned to. As a contractor I am a passionate and career-driven individual which thrives on challenges. A registered nurse by profession, I have written various medical articles back in college. I also have received transcription training mainly dealing with, but not limited to, medical transcription. Throughout my time working at a publishing company as a data technician, I have performed data entry task, archived books using xml as well as grammar and editing of its contents. I also have received project manager training where I handled the completion of academic books from publishing companies like Springer and Elsevier. Other experiences also include customer service representative for a cable company in the U.S., handling calls related to billing and account services. I always apply for a job with intention of finishing it through and I'm one of the most reasonable person you can ever work with. And with every task that's given to me I always guarantee to deliver beyond the client's expectations, ensuring that I am well worth your time and money.  less

    To whom it may concern, Offered skills: Mainly translations (including, but not limited to) from English into Polish and from Polish into English,telephone and face-to face interpreting, voice-over service and proofreading in Polish. Area Covered: Manchester and its outskirts for live jobs, UK and other countries for web/remote jobs. I am a Polish language native speaker, but I have been living in the UK for a while now, so I communicate mostly in English and started treating English as it was my second, mother tongue language. I love languages and different cultures-that is why I started working for two language agencies as a Polish language Interpreter/Translator. In addition, I have also started learning a new, beautiful language-Spanish and I hope I will expand my services in the near future. I look forward to collaborating with you! Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. Monika  less
