    Canada - Last active: 5 days 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.

    I have a solid academic background both from Italian and British Universities (degrees in 'Languages & Literature' and 'Film Studies'). More recently, I have added Computing to my studies with a Postgraduate Diploma in 'Information Systems Development' from Edinburgh Napier University. I started my translator's career in 1998 working as an in-house translator for a post-production company in Italy. In 2000 I moved to the UK and for about 7 years I worked for the local government in the library service. In March 2012, I started my freelance career again although I have never stopped working with languages, one way or another. With each freelance project I undertake, I guarantee high quality work delivered on time and a prompt response to your phone calls and emails. I do not do *rush jobs* nor I offer my services on a project unless I have the right skills and tools to complete the job. I care about my professional reputation and respect my clients' needs. I never deliver a text without having it checked it and re-checked until I am sure it is error-free. oDESK PROJECTS: ITALIAN to ENGLISH Lease agreements (7,500 words); Legal (July 2013) Infomercials translation (2,000 words); Cooking (June 2013) Website content translation (7,000 words); Consulting Company, Computing (April 2013) ENGLISH to ITALIAN Products descriptions on Amazon (15 items); laptops/mobile phones accessories (October - November 2013) Language school website (40,000 words) - ongoing since Sept 2013 Website content translation (2,000 words); Small company, editing services (August 2013) User manuals (15,000 words) – Cameras and videocameras, mobility scooter, (since August 2013) Website content translation (30,000 words + SEO keywords); Travel/Study Abroad (since May 2013) Website content translation (3,000 words); Automotive: swivel seats, product specifications (May 2013) Proofreading of technical manual (130 pages); Automotive: Airtech electrical valves (May 2013) Transcriptions of English interviews (3 hours); Medical: infectious diseases (May 2013) Website content translation (2,500 words); Product listings: gadgets (February 2013) Soap-making kit instructions (2,000 words); Product leaflet: soap making kit (January 2013) Translation & Proofreading of how-to articles; Various topics, (November 2012 - February 2013) For a detailed list of the projects I have worked on, please visit my profile on ProZ.com: http://www.proz.com/translator/959116
