    Marco S.

    Author and a native speaker of Danish

    Denmark - Last active: 16 days ago - Tests: 4

    My name is Marco! I am a young and very straightforward employee, who is always ready to make a hundred percent out of the material I am given. Simply a young and successful man that you can count on! I hope you wonder why you should choose me instead of all the others? Well, first of all I can say that I have about 5 years of experience in translating English-Danish and Danish-English. I am a native speaker of Danish. Currently, I am studying English and have done this for several years now. Another very important thing to know about how I work is that I would rather use another 30 minutes to check for mistakes, than hand over a product that is of a lower standard than it could be. As a translator, I do not just translate. I try my best to find the perfect word to get the same message out there when the project is translated. As a translator, I aim to provide the best possible experience for those who are going to read it later. Because of my mixed family roots, I am a quick learner of new languages and I have currently been studying French for the last 26 months.

    Go-To Pro-Writer

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 4

    My main objective as a writer is to provide clear, intriguing and detailed information to the world. I'm interested in most every subject, which means I'm very diverse. I have written non-fiction essays, papers and articles. I have also written, edited and published two fiction novels under the pen name Scarlet Clearwater. My favorite genres are sci-fi and erotica, however, I generally love to write anything, be it technical or creative. Currently, I'm writing a screenplay adapted from one of my novels. Professionally, I have experience in real estate, property management and law. I graduated with an Associate's Degree in Paralegal Studies. I worked on oDesk last year for many hours, but due to a transfer in PCs, I lost my portfolio and had to start again. I hope this doesn't deter anyone from hiring me, as my work is top-notch.
