    Katie H.

    Creative Writer, Editor, Proofreader

    United States - Last active: 21 hours ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 9

    As an author myself, I know the value of a good editor; one who will be able to catch every misused word, missed punctuation or letter, unclear message, and inconsistency. The books on my shelves have notes scribbled throughout, little crossed-out pencil scratchings over words that just don't hit home, and margin-notes about missed opportunities for more powerful options. I'm here to offer this service to you BEFORE you send your precious work off into the world of publication. Everybody misses things when they're writing their own work, without fail there is something worth changing, and I'll find it for you and offer suggestions for improvement where needed. Currently, I am a Managing Editor of the Greenleaf Review Literary Magazine, where I run a team of editors to put out a magazine of student submissions on a tight deadline. Our team gets maybe three months with the materials before a final magazine is produced and I have the responsibility to make sure we all meet deadlines along the way and handle submissions in a professional and respectful manner. We have a short editing session each year and the rest of the time I'm on here looking for more projects to fill my time. I hope you'll consider letting me be a part of your process towards publication.

    English- Chinese- Italian Translator/Proofreader/Transcriptionist

    Italy - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 6

    Hi, my name is Aurelia and I am Italian native speaker. Since I love languages, I decided to study Languages and Translation at university, applying several translation projects. I have just graduated. I have been studying English and Chinese and I really feel in love with these languages and cultures. In order to learn languages, the interaction with native speakers is very important. That's why during the last two years I have lived abroad, spending a short time in UK and almost one year in China and of course this experiences helped me to improve my skills. I offer English/Italian translation for every kind of text (written or oral) and Chinese/Italian/English translations. Moreover I have very good writing skills, so I also write articles in Italian and in English. I am interested in a lot of topics: art, literature, linguistics, calligraphy (both Western and Chinese), painting, social problems, tourism, travelling, and so on. I assure the highest accuracy and quality in my work.

    Creative Writer & Editor

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 4

    Hello! It’s nice to meet you. To start you should know that I am a lover of the written word. By day I am a Librarian at Johns Hopkins University and at night I am a creative writer and editor here on Upwork. Due to my B.A. in English Literature and my M.S. in Library Science I am uniquely qualified to write and edit both academic text and works of fiction. I am currently ranked number one on Upwork for the creative writing test and I believe it is a testament to my attention to grammar, style, and structure in both my writing and editing. In my creative writing, I focus on writing unique and thoughtful pieces of text. Many of my clients praise my mature writing and communication skills - I want to produce work for my clients that fits exactly what they were looking for. Much of the writing I do here on Upwork is romantic fiction and I am a lover of contemporary, paranormal, and sweet romances. I enjoy writing a “meet-cute” just as much as a ménage à trois! My books are character driven and I always provide a strong plot outline before I begin so you can be sure to know exactly what to expect from my final product. When I edit for another author my skill set includes a fine eye for editing grammar and a knack for reshaping the text of a document while keeping the original author’s voice. I always focus on the goal of the author for whom I’m editing - I will help you create the best version of your project as possible. This means that I can do everything from light grammar checks all the way through rewriting and creative writing within your document. As a Librarian I work mainly with graduate and doctoral students and faculty assisting them with research, research skills, academic citation, and presentations. At Johns Hopkins University I work with faculty and students in the following areas of study: Business, Education, Biotechnology, Museum Studies, and Engineering. I love working with such a diverse group of subjects as well as high level students because they give me such varied areas to research. No two research questions are ever the same! I became a Librarian because I love to teach, I love to read, and I love to research. I'm an expert at both database research as well as standard internet searches. And you're just as likely to find me running them through my computer as my phone. I'm always one search away from the answer. I love to read, write, and research. Here on Upwork I am looking to work for a set of varied and diverse clients. I find these tasks fulfilling in both my professional and personal life - and I would love to put my skills to work for you. Please refer to my portfolio for examples of writing I have done for Upwork clients or feel free to message me for more information. I’m always on the lookout for a new and interesting project!

    Trisha A.

    Linguist: Proofreader | Writer | Translator | Editor

    United States - Last active: 12 days ago - Tests: 3

    Thanks for taking a moment to take a look at my profile! I am a linguist with strong writing, researching, editing, and proofreading skills, specializing in English scholarly writing, translation, transcription, and research in second language acquisition. My passion for language has driven me towards multilingualism, a B.A. in Foreign Language and Literatures, an M.A. in Applied Linguistics, and a career in language education. As I write this, I am approaching graduation, wrapping up my research, academic writing, and final projects while living nomadically (currently in Bali, Indonesia). While I am new to freelancing work, I have over 2100 hours of private language and academic tutoring experience during which I managed the private education of up to 12 individual clients or groups at a time (self-employed). Two years of simultaneous travel, research, and academic writing also lends itself to a confidence in my ability to complete quality, detail oriented work independently and in a timely matter. If you’ve read this far, I invite you to take a look at my experience and education. At the moment, I am particularly interested in finding work that would allow me the opportunity to apply my passion and language skills to strengthening and refining the writing of others, bringing it closer to target-like constructions (for second language English or Spanish) or simply proofreading for problematic grammar, spelling, or style. I am eager to work with both academic and non-scholarly writing – essays, articles, reviews, proposals, sales/marketing copy, creative writing, etc. Please let me know what other information I can offer to help determine whether your project and my skills and experience are a good fit! More about me: -U.S. born and a native-speaker of English -Fluent in Spanish and conversational in French -Proficient in APA and MLA citation and style requirements and guidelines -Trained in IPA transcription (primarily English, Spanish, and French.) -Experienced in transcription (orthographic) of audio recordings of conducted research -Trained in phonetic and phonology correction (accent assessment and training) -Strong knowledge of English and Spanish grammar (academic, professional, and vernacular) Experienced in: -Proof-reading and editing student work -English-Spanish/Spanish-English translation -Academic article reviews -Abstract Writing -Annotated Bibliographies -Textbook reviews and critiques -Teaching essay writing -Research, analysis, and synthesis
