J'ai un réel talent pour l'écriture, j'ai ce qu'on appelle "une plume" un style d'écriture qui peut vraiment faire la différence. Cette aptitude particulière, je la mets à profit dans tout travail d'écriture en français, comme la rédaction ou la révision d'articles car j'écris des articles de toutes sortes et y compris optimisé SEO, des communiqués de presse, mais également des contes pour enfants. Cette compétence m'est aussi très utile dans les traductions de l'anglais vers le français, leur apportant ainsi le « petit truc en plus ».

En ce qui concerne le domaine de l'écriture et de la rédaction, je n'écris qu'en français.

Native Chinese Translator and Networker with Sales...

China - Last active: 11/18/2013 - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 2

I’ve been translating (and proofreading) from English into Mandarin/Chinese (Simplified & Traditional) since 2004 and started to serve the oDesk community since 2009 when I got inspired by “The World Is Flat” and especially “The 4-hour Work Week". I’m a bachelor degree holder and have passed IELTS test, and also acquired nationally accredited diploma in English from China Education Bureau. I joined multinationals in 2004 and have worked with Americans and French since then. My time dealing with English-speaking people helps me not only become more fluent, but also gives me the cultural knowledge one needs to be a successful translator. Additionally, with my professional manner as well as a "can-do" attitude, I'd also love to be involved in any projects related to Chinese language or market, e.g. copywriting, marketing, market research, product sourcing, china business consulting, etc. I'm now ranked one of the top 1% contractors from China with 100% positive feedback from all my happy clients, who have generously spent nearly $30,000 on me, including some key accounts of oDesk like Amazon A9 and New York Film Academy. If interested, please don't hesitate to invite me to bid on your project and you will see where I come in for you.
