    As a tech writer I have a natural aptitude for translating complex and esoteric information into lively, understandable prose. As a marketing writer I borrow techniques from journalism and fiction to draw your prospects into the copy and guide them through to the final sale. As a blogger I will present your company, product, promotion, or idea in an easy, conversational, 3rd person style in accordance with Associated Press standards. I’m currently working as a contract writer for a fertilizer agglomeration and mining equipment manufacturer. I have signed a no-compete agreement with this company, so I wouldn’t be the right writer for you if your company operates in the same field.  less

    Hello. Thanks for viewing my profile. I am Hodžić Vernes, freshman computer science student. I have a lot of free time and I decided to try to earn some money in that period. I have a lot of translating experience so far. I'm a guide for a group of American and Swiss students who come to my town on a student-exchange program for 5 years in a row and I expect to be their guide for at least another few years. Besides translating I'm quite experienced in Microsoft Office (Word, Excel and Powerpoint). Looking forward to hearing from you.  less
