    Native English / Language Specialist / Proofreader / Editor

    South Africa - Last active: 09/10/2014 - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 5

    "Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten" – Gucci Family Motto. Although my translation abilities include Dutch, Afrikaans, Germanic, French and Welsh language pairs, these are not principally promoted as my primary function and objective is to transform formal and academic English into a globally understandable, readable, taut, grammatically correct, and acceptable style of English while maintaining an understanding of the need and place for using of localized vernacular. Make your literary task easier by taking advantage of the skills of a TRUE Native English specialist (born, bred, and educated in the homeland of the English language – perhaps the reason it is called English because it was invented (developed) in England), who has spent a lifetime developing, cultivating and updating his literary competence in many far-flung parts of globe becoming familiar with the language in all its flavours (including US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, East Africa, and points between) and developing skills in editing and proofreading (Chicago / Oxford / MLA / APA 5 / APA 6 / AMS / IEEE / Harvard / Vancouver / Elsevier styles, and plain, old-fashioned Queens English, among others). Corrected output can be returned in MS Word format (with "track changes", sidebar comments and advice) for all changes, or in Latex typeset format with native raw code and PDF output depending on the client's choice. All house style requirements are strictly adhered to in either case. Citing and language are in accordance with accepted modern style standards. My core competence lies in taking a literary product or service then polishing until it shines so you can see your reflection, and these services are offered to help clients effectively and efficiently produce an ideal "final product". I am currently seeking opportunities where my high competence in written / spoken English (all varieties), multifaceted business skills, and extensive experience with current communication facilities could be used for mutual benefit. "It is the quality of our work which will please God and not the quantity" – Mohandas Gandhi.

    Consultant/Human Resource Solutions/Project Manager

    Philippines - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 20

    Problem solving, results based strategy. As a contractor, I am very reliable, fast and efficient. I go out of my way to solve challenges and to overcome difficulties that may come my way. I have a stable internet connection, quiet place to work and time flexibility. I can help out any business in more ways than one. In a fast-paced generation like what we have now, everyone needs to adapt to keep up, this is what I am here for, to make you and your business adapt and keep up, to thrive to excellence and success by realizing your potential through carefully planned strategies and framework for your business model. I take pride in my ability to conceptualize ideas from thin air, eliminate challenges, create market channels where current players have yet to notice and build mutually beneficial partnerships with companies that has seemingly different markets but share common goals. I work around the framework of S.A.V.E the new marketing mix. Solution based instead of Product based focus; Accessibility instead of Place; Value instead of Price; Education instead of Promotion. I believe market trends and technology may develop overtime but the basic Psyche of the society and collective state of mind constantly drives the market to move. Keys to success of every marketing campaign are Knowledge, Unique Selling Proposition and Accounts management. In a nutshell, if you plan to build a company, the first step is to establish your own core competencies, core values, human resource management style, financial status and operations management plan. Although it is vital to learn about market share competitors hold, these are only outside factors that can be used to gauge your starting position. However, it should not dictate you on your decisions concerning your company. Instead, you may utilize this knowledge to motivate yourself in overcoming the challenges ahead. While market research paints you a good picture (of the competition), it will not give you the 360 degree view you expect see especially if the study focused mostly on trends and market saturation. Start ups do not recognize their full potential early on because more often than not, owners rely heavily on competitor data comparison. My role is to make you realize potential market channels by either suggesting ideas or creating possible scenarios geared towards the desired result thus maximizing profits with little to no competition. Data analyzation keeps most of us sane. It points us to a safe path that will shield us from potential pitfall. On the other hand, that shield blurs our vision. These outside factors may hinder you from seeing what is actually there because everyone is busy looking at the same direction, no one bothered to look elsewhere. Before you invest on business, ask yourself these questions: 1. Am I interested in this industry? 2. Would it be something I could still see myself doing 5 years from now? 3. Where am I standing now and where do I want to go? 4. Do I have the guts to lose all my investment? 5. Is the risk worth the potential profit? After you answer most of these questions, you can proceed in spending your resources for comprehensive market research including past trends and history. You would be saving precious time, money and effort by simply assessing yourself first rather than gathering data that could overwhelm you and point you towards a different outcome. Each of us posses our own inner personal advisor, we have to recognize the inner voice. Ultimately it will still depend on how you interpret it and in what state of mind you are in that would make or break the deal for you. Thank you very much for taking the time to give my profile your undivided attention. I hope you make the right decisions and I wish you all the best!
