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

    I am currently doing volunteer teaching work in France. I speak, read and write both English and French with English being my first language. I have done translation and interpreting work on an individual basis and for large groups. Over the past 4 years I've worked as a Licensed Personal Banker for 2 large banks in New York. Within the bank I managed the sales team, was responsible for meeting sales goals and assisted the manager in managing all functions of the branch. I have strong sales skills but also excellent oral and written communication skills. Part of my job was written communication with clients from diverse backgrounds. This helped me to become proficient in writing, proofreading, and correction. Also I have worked as a Personal Assistant and Manager where I was in charge of organizing meetings, travel arrangements and doing research projects. As a Personal Assistant I managed the team and kept things running in the office. I touch type 60 words per minute and I am very comfortable working with computers. I have transcribed videos and audio files. I enjoy writing and this passion has helped me to write many articles on a variety of topics in both English and French. I know the value of getting work done quickly and accurately. I am good at leading others to accomplish that same goal.

    Hello! I'm Italian mother tongue, fluent in English and Mandarin and with good knowledge of Spanish. As an Italian native, I can also count on the benefits of a strong background in etymology and linguistics, thanks to my classical studies at high school.

I spent 2 years in China working for an Italian company where, among other PA duties, I was responsible for the translation of a number of business documents, including: business emails, contracts, product brochures, quality manuals, work procedures and instructions, customer satisfaction questionnaires and complaint forms, etc. I also have several experiences teaching English as a second language to both children and adult students. I've been working as a freelancer since 2012, mainly in the translation field, and since I first joined UpWork (former oDesk) I've collected quite a number of satisfied clients and great reviews, becoming one of the top-rated freelancers here!
