United Kingdom - Last active: 10/07/2014 - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 4

Dear client, I am a freelancer in three different categories: art and design, translation, and editing. Having had an art oriented higher education (BFA), as well as professional experience in all of these three areas, I am a confident, passionate and dependable employee. Translation is a family business that I have had the opportunity to observe and participate in for a couple of years. The languages I know well are German, English, Russian and Japanese, which I studied during extensive travel and while living in different countries. On the other hand, editing is a professional field that has become available to me through an internship at Time Out magazine in London. Please view my artwork on this profile and visit my LinkedIn profile to see recommendations from my latest internship. Lastly, working online offers three things that are important to me in a career: being on a flexible schedule, experiencing diversity and being able to travel without abandoning my work. I look forward to working with you! Natalja
