    A man of many skills. If you need a hit-man, a hacker or generally someone to do something a little unorthodox... I'm an experienced content writer, copywriter and technical writer - both on oDesk and my "real life" job. I consider myself a great person to work with because of my attitude and manner. I pride myself on communication. It's hard to sum up my writing style as it depends on what I'm writing for. I'm obviously not going to make a comical article regarding a disease, and equally a boring article regarding entertainment. My most confident writing style is stylist, fun, energetic, engaging and informative. I specialise in training, manual creation, guides, SOPs, transcription, continuous improvement, problem solving, article writing, review writing and translation. I can speak, read and write in 3 languages and I have a vast amount of experience in teaching. My most recent occupation was a trainer for a site of over 1,300 employees. I was heavily tasked with maintaining training systems, matrices, sessions, inductions and more. Organisation was one of the biggest demands from my training position as I had such a work load in a department of only 2 people. I communicate well and ensure my client/s is/are fully aware of my progress. Honest and constructive with my feedback and continuously looking for ways to improve a system to achieve better productivity. A bit about me: From England ✔ French and Spanish heritage ✔ 3 languages ✔ University graduate ✔ Pianist ✔ X-box pro ✔ Beard ✔ Thanks for reading!  less

    I am currently working as a representative for the Fraud Department of one of the world's well-known Internet Service Provider. I've previously worked for special projects and highly-escalated customer service concerns, which allowed me to interact and worked with Program Managers and Point of Contacts in the company's headquarters. It also allowed me to think out of the box and practise my analytical skills in decision-making without jeopardizing the company's guidelines and credibility. I also have a wide-range and years of experience in back-end processes such as reviewing credits, fraud claims and chargebacks, and processing postal mail and fax documents. Right now, I'm looking for a full-time job that allows me to work at home for a reasonable cost.  less

    I am a French native who's been living in English speaking countries for many years. After completing a college degree, I started doing various translation jobs from English to French and vice versa. I notably worked on the adaptation of scripts for the TV show, The Simpsons, as well as some full length movies (The Simpsons, Yes Man). Benefiting from this experience, I do more than mere translations. I adapt, localize and transcreate texts which means I find equivalences to puns, wordplays, idioms, colloquialisms and cultural references, juggling with words until they sound good to the ear, flowing naturally with style, while keeping the essence, spirit, tone and emotions of the original text. I've worked on all kind of texts, from religious sermons to call-girls descriptions... and even the odd funeral speech. Kids book, work contracts, financial reports, SEO analysis, board games, movie subtitles, user manuals, video games, you name it. And this content was for all kind of media and formats: websites, mobiles apps, DVD, etc. It would be a mistake to think that there is a simple word-for-word equivalence between two given languages, and that translation is a straightforward process. A literal translation doesn't take into consideration many parameters, like the constraints imposed by context, syntax and figures of speech. It is necessary to understand the internal system of a language in order to produce the same effect in both languages, something artifical intelligence can't achieve (not yet at least...) And of course a good translation takes more than good language skills, it also requires research, proofreading and copywriting skills. Some clients seem to be worried that the translator would use an automatic software or Google translate. Well, while I might use a dictionary if I have a doubt about a word, rest assured that I never, ever use any of these tools. It seems pretty obvious but apparently some some people do... I also attach a lot of importance to the communication with my clients, which I think is paramount to the success of a project. I make sure to stay in contact throughout the project and don't hesitate to ask questions if I have a doubt about the context or anything else in order to make sure the translation will be 100% accurate. The speed and rate of the translation can vary significantly depending on the vocabulary register and the semantic and lexical fields. I'd be happy to give you a time and price quote if you can show me an exemple of your text. I also do: - transcription (converting audio speeches to text). - proofreading - Creation of subtitles and encoding them in your videos.  less
