    Spanish/English Translator & Financial Analyst

    United States - Last active: 10 days ago - Tests: 3

    I am a diligent, dependable, self-starter with significant bilingual experience in the field of business! I am new to Odesk, but definitely not new to translating, business, or freelancing! I just returned from a year of living and working in the Dominican Republic as a financial analyst for a Dominican organization. The position required me to interpret and translate for coworkers, customers, and visitors. Previously, I worked full-time in the U.S. as a Spanish-English Consultant for a data entry project commissioned by the Puerto Rican Government. Before that, I worked as an assistant accountant in Panama City, Panama, and was again often asked to provide translation and interpreting help for coworkers. In addition, I have been asked to interpret and translate for events, including the Marketplace Revolution in Chicago, IL November 2012--and during a mission trip in rural Panama during July 2011.

    STOP! If you are looking for high end content written by a Native English speaker then you have in fact landed on the right profile. However if you are looking for generic content that simply fills the void on a webpage please continue to other profiles. It is sad that many people will agree to pay next to nothing in order to get basic content that rarely makes sense. I can assure you that readers can in fact tell the difference and it only makes your company look bad by hiring non native English speakers. For someone who themselves is not a Native English speaker, often times you will hire those who can write content that looks similar to English dialect, however the reader can ALWAYS tell the difference. Hi, I'm Sierra and I am located in Central Missouri. English is my native language and I have an extensive vocabulary that tends to astonish people. I am great at what I do, whether it includes copy editing or SEO content creation, researching the most recent finance related information or processing VA mortgage loans. I work with clients all over the globe, and I genuinely enjoy it. I have become Odesk's go to girl for ESL editing and TOEFL content creation which is awesome and I am proud that my clients entrust me with their contracts. I pride myself on my excellent verbal and written communication skills, having a descriptive writing ability that is second to none, and always providing my clients with 100% original and error free content, I am polite, courteous, and willing to help out with any problems that may arise. I am an extremely fast learner and I will not disappoint. I have excellent references from all of my previous clients and I am willing to provide them at any time. I am a Sociology graduate student, with a minor in Middle Eastern Culture focusing on religion. I have completed numerous contracts on this site as well as others and have always received excellent and positive feedback . I am well versed in teaching English, and I am open to tutor those working to pass the TOEFL exam. I have been working through Odesk since November of 2013 and to be honest it has been great. I now work off this site more because of repeat business and it has been awesome! I have clients from all over the globe and I couldn't have done it without Odesk.
