    With over six years of experience as editor, I have got exposure to English language-based editing and proofreading of manuscripts pertaining to diverse domains. I am familiar with both UK and US English requirements. I have excellent grammar and punctuation skills, and a keen acumen for refined sentences. I am proficient with editing in MS Word using the 'Track Changes' feature. As I am a full-time freelance editor, I am readily available to take up projects as and when they come (even on weekends). Using my extensive experience in editing, I can make your content error-free in terms of grammar, punctuation, syntax, and sentence flow, besides offering useful tips to improve the overall quality. I am also a native Marathi/Hindi speaker who has translated many documents from Marathi to English and Hindi to English in MS Word. Furthermore, I am a top-rated English language editor, which means you won't have to get my translation proofread from someone else, thus helping you save vital money. I also undertake English to Hindi and English to Marathi translation.  less

    I'll admit that you're taking a chance in hiring me. I'm not the usual candidate for a translation job. Let's face it, I'm a student who is studying to become a professional interpreter. I don't have as much experience as you would like. But trust me, I'm just the one you want. The problem you have: you can't find a translator who speaks the languages fluently, charges reasonably and WHO LOVES TO TRANSLATE! You can't find someone who has enthusiasm for their job that carries into their work. Search no more. You've found me. I love to translate. (Just ask my clients. They can tell you I get stuff done quickly because I get so excited.) I'm just like a puppy dog. I work so hard to please you because I'm not a big dog yet. (I'm like Hertz in the car ad. I'm second best, so I have to work harder to please you and I won't let you down.) And, clearly, I'm totally fluent in English, Hebrew, Russian and French. (And, besides, I show my translations to another fluent/native speaker to make sure it's top-notch. And no, I won't charge you for that review period.) Oh, and did I mention that I'm good at writing too? Yes, my translations are actually READABLE! (Want proof? I was featured in Deutsche Welle--in German!-- in the Jerusalem Post's Hebrew monthly magazine-- in Hebrew, and Minnesota Public Radio--in English!) (I forgot to mention that everything I earn is going to help me pay my way through college so I can do this professionally and say that I have had some real experience doing this before.) So go ahead. Hire me. You won't regret it. I love long-term clients and short-term clients alike and love keeping you in my address book. Let's talk sometime. I'd love to translate your stuff. I'm getting to be one of the best translators in the field (I'm pretty darn great now-- ask my clients) and you're helping me get even better. (Don't worry, my language skills are perfect. After all, I'm fluent in Hebrew and French and am a Russian and English native.) Let's talk soon. I'm looking forward to it. Leora  less

    I’ve liked the English idiom since I was a child and I try to improve my knowledge of the language every day. I’m a curious person who likes to learn a little bit of everything. "Knowledge is power". English is my second language, after my native one - Portuguese. I can also have conversations in Spanish and understand a little bit of French (have family living in France). I’ve recently started to learn Japanese. Even though translations are my area of expertise, I also enjoy the following: - Data Entry, especially creating Excel spreadsheets; - Subtitling - have previous experience subtitling animes, using Aegisub; - Writing (one of my hobbies); - Proofreading; - and any other work is welcome. I’m a perfectionist. I always meet deadlines and deliver work with utmost quality. I usually communicate with my clients through Skype.  less

    ''Dont regret anything you do, because in the end, it makes you who you are'' is what I often tell myself. I never give up and I always keep trying, and that has made me the person I am today. I was born on December 16th, 1968, in the southern part of the Netherlands. I was a very intelligent little boy who was very interested in the Dutch language. Not only the Dutch language, but also the English language. From the age of 4, I told my parents that I had a dream of becoming an Englishman someday. My parents started teaching me some basic English, with words and sentences such as yes, no, hello, goodbye, how are you, all basic stuff basically. With the help of some good old English magazines, I managed to pick up the English language quite well, and I got better and better at writing it, as well as speaking it. In primary and secondary school, I studied the English language even better. At the end of my middle school career, I passed my Anglia exams on the highest possible level (Masters), which allowed me to study at any English university. I never decided to do so, and eventually I graduated from Utrecht University in the Netherlands. As of today, I can safely say that I have enough experience to be able to speak the English language fluently, with perfect grammar, spelling and what not. So what do I do? It's simple: I can translate literally anything. Just anything. As long as it's from English to Dutch or vice versa, I'll be able to do it. As a 45 year old man, with about 40 years of experience in the English language, I can assure you that I will deliver the highest quality work within the shortest amount of time. A maximum amount of concentration and dedication will be put towards the assigned projects, which will result in a translation that will leave you flabbergasted. If I had to describe myself in 3 words, I would say friendly, professional and detail oriented. I always stay friendly towards my clients, as long as they treat me with the same amount of respect. This will not only improve my reputation, but also the reputation of the client. It's basically a win-win situation for both parties. Professionalism is also very important when being a freelancer. You have to show others that you know what you are doing. They must be able to rely on you, knowing that you will deliver quality work. Last but not least, I would describe myself as detail oriented. I'm a perfectionist and I am not satisfied with my own work when it's full of mistakes. One mistake is one too many. Just make sure it's perfect. Trust me, it gives you the best feeling you could ever imagine. I look forward to any further cooperation with clients. If you need my assistance, I'd be more than honoured to help. Have a great day!
