    Canada - Last active: 1 day 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.

    Writer-Editor-Application Specialist

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 10

    Do you have a book in your head and need somebody to write it down? Do you have a book on paper and need someone to polish it, tighten it up, shape it, make it sing? Are you a merchant with a continuous stream of copy that absolutely has to be bright and error-free? As a copy editor, I write and proofread copy with the precision of a computer programmer or an accountant, in both of which fields I’ve had considerable experience. Nothing gets by me. That’s only the beginning. In my 20-year career as non-profit program manager and back-office polymath, I’ve edited minutes and articles, written successful grants and sales letters, technical documentation, user guides, and financial reports, and designed newsletters and all manner of public relations and promotional materials. In 2009, I retired from the office of a small non-profit adult care community after ten years building the organization’s community support base, level of fundraising, technical and financial infrastructure, and public relations professionalism. My appeal letters increased every year and ultimately doubled the yield of L’Arche Nehalem Community’s Annual Appeal. Since then, I’ve been writing books, building a writing portfolio, as well as pursuing some creative ventures in other fields. My book of anecdotes, The Depressed Guy’s Book of Wisdom, is published by Chipmunka Publishers, London. I’ve been doing a weekly column on writing as the Sunday Editor of Gather.com’s Writing system portal. I’ve done a huge variety of creative writing during these three years, including non-fiction, stories, poetry, and a full-length young adult novel. I would love to talk to you about your project or opportunity. I know I can be an enormous help to your endeavors.
