    Canada - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 2

    Hi! My name is Rachel. I currently live in Montreal, but I'm American and originally from Minnesota. I was a full-time English as a Second Language public school teacher in the U.S. for 10 years, but moved to Montreal to accompany my husband who is training as a liver/transplant surgeon. I can't teach here in Canada, so I'm hoping to help you with your projects! I have a Master's degree from Columbia University in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, and a Bachelor's degree in Spanish. I am an expert in English grammar, spelling, and usage. While I was getting my Master's degree, I worked as a paralegal for a Trusts and Estates attorney in New York City. I transcribed legal documents, composed correspondence, communicated with clients, conducted legal research, delivered documents to court, and completed general administrative tasks. He was so pleased with my work that he offered me a full-time position with him, but I declined in order to finish my teacher training. I can help you with: - Transcription of audio and video files (flat rate of $1 per audio minute) - Legal (or other) research - Document preparation - Data entry - General administrative/clerical tasks - Spanish-English translation I have excellent computer skills. I am very meticulous, detail-oriented, professional, punctual, and can help you with many tasks quickly. My grammar and spelling skills are stellar. If you want your job done right the first time, without any headaches and hassles, then I am the freelancer for you! Please contact me with your job opportunities. Thank you for reading!

    Executive Assistant/Legal Secretary/Project Admin/Transcription/Typing

    New Zealand - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 4

    I have worked most recently full time as an Executive Assistant and a Project Administrator. In 2010 I gained a Project Coordination Certificate. I am extremely organised and methodical in my approach to all work. If I'm in doubt about instructions I will ask questions to ensure I get it right first time, but I learn quickly. My greatest strength skill-wise would be my touch typing. I can copy type or transcribe very quickly and with a high level of accuracy. I am also experienced with data entry. Believe it or not, I enjoy typing and data entry, I don't mind if its interesting content or not! I have worked in the legal industry (Secretary/Word Processing), freight forwarding industry (Customer Services/Sales) and engineering/electrical (EA/Projects). I will handle any task with efficiency and to a high standard, more often than not with a sense of humor, and you will find me trustworthy and a hard worker.

    Word Expert | Doc. Design | Format | Styles | Templates|Proofread|Edit

    Canada - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 11

    Designing and creating high-quality, stylistically pleasing, stable, functional, predictably formatted documents using the automated functionality features provided by the MS Word software, is what I do best. I have recently completed several MS Word formatting and template design projects through oDesk comprising: legal, financial and business documents; operations and technical manuals; training and course materials; all which were well suited to the numbering algorithms and other features provided by MS Word. I also have many years of experience working for the federal Justice Department typing, coding, tagging, formatting, proofreading and publishing legislation (draft bills, statutes and regulations) and other documents. Due to the high-profile nature of this work, I was required to produce quality work without errors prepared within short timeframes. Publishing for public accessibility was on paper, CD-ROM and the departmental website. I am from Canada and my native language is Canadian English so correct English spelling and grammar usage is quite natural for me. My knowledge and experience includes: - analyzing requirements and creating document formats and structures accordingly; - creating templates, style sheets and Definition Type Documents (DTDs) to enforce format and indexing specifications; - creating documents using different text editing, publishing and xml editing software: Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, Interleaf, Folio Views, Arbortext, Adobe Acrobat; - transcribe files using Express Scribe and InqScribe transcription software. I have a very good knowledge of legislative formats, structures and terminology. My performance evaluations frequently made positive reference to my dedication, commitment, reliability, conscientious attitude, persistence, efficiency, competence, creativity, perseverance, tactfulness, discretion, and attention to detail.

    Certified English - Chinese Translation Expert

    China - Last active: 7 hours ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 8

    "By far one of the best online experiences I've ever had. A consummate professional and highly recommended." "Ivy provides accurate, fast and high-quality translations. Unlike other translators, she puts in the time and effort to thoroughly understand the source material before beginning." "My colleague in China who proofreads Ivy's translations says she does so with great pleasure as the work is excellent!" "She cared as if she was part of the team, not just a contractor doing a task." I am a professional Chinese translator with six years of full-time experience. I move each year between the US and China, and this unique position living and working in both cultures allows me to create especially accurate, localized and contemporary translations. The above testimonials (from my oDesk and Elance profiles) prove that I deliver high-quality translations that make an immediate impact on your global ventures, increasing your profits and making you look good -- in English and Chinese! LANGUAGE PAIRS: • English to Simplified Chinese • English to Traditional Chinese • Simplified Chinese to English • Traditional Chinese to English I am a native Simplified Chinese speaker from Shandong province, China, where we speak and write a very standard Mandarin similar to that spoken in Beijing. I have studied and written Traditional Chinese for Taiwan since I was young and am highly competent in this language as well; however, as it is not my native language, I ALWAYS provide an independent review of my work by a native Traditional Chinese colleague. I have studied English since I began school, and I taught the language for many years at a private school in China. I now live half the year in the US and half in China, and I read, write and speak English for a US market. However, as English is not my native language, I ALWAYS provide an independent review of my translations into English by a professional English copyeditor to ensure accuracy and a natural translation. SERVICES: • Document Translation • App, Game and Website Localization • Editing • Proofreading • Transcription • Copywriting (Chinese only) I provide professional translations between Chinese and English. I also offer proofreading and editing services, and I am happy to review and critique previous translations into Simplified Chinese. Every document that I translate or software that I localize will be proofread with meticulous detail to ensure the utmost accuracy and quality, and I will firmly calibrate your text for the particular field, tone and target audience. I also contract with a professional translator colleague to provide an independent review of EVERY text that I translate. This independent proofreading is completely free of charge to you; it's at my expense to ensure that I provide the most accurate and highest-quality translation possible! SPECIALIZATIONS: • Marketing Materials • Websites • Education • Travel and Tourism • Business • App and Game Localizations I have solid experience translating everything from technical user manuals to legal contracts to social dating websites. While I am quite capable of working in a variety of fields, over the years I have specialized in the above. I invite you to check out my portfolio on oDesk or on Elance (http://Ivy_Feng.elance.com/) for several Chinese translation samples. I also have multiple references and additional samples available on request. For more glowing reviews from past satisfied clients, please see my testimonials page further down, or on Elance, where I have even more experience (https://www.elance.com/s/ivy_feng/job-history/?t=1&s=rating&o=desc). GUARANTEE: Working with strangers online is a bit of a leap of faith, and even more so when it involves a foreign language! But it doesn't have to be. If you're not totally happy with my delivered translation, I'll happily make UNLIMITED revisions until you are COMPLETELY satisfied -- no hassles! I look forward to hearing from you!
