    Skilled in languages and culture

    Denmark - Last active: 5 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 2

    Profile description: Top strengths: 1. International understanding. 2. 3 languages: English, German and Danish. 3. The ability to plan and organize. 4. Seeing simple and effective solutions. My name is Jesper Skov – a Dane with a flair for marketing, language and culture. I have a BA in English communication and marketing, and love my daily interaction with both language and culture. I have worked in different sectors trough out the years, which all had something to do with either language or communication. I have worked at firms selling everything from power tools, safety equipment to website development. Translating from English to Danish is one of my strongest assets, and I have been doing so for almost 5 years now. Most of the work has been technical translation, which gave me the tools to learn about a new product or field fairly quickly, to ensure correct translation. During the day I work at an marketing agency, helping clients increase their sales and get there message out. We create Social Media Campaigns, Webpages and write campaign texts. In addition to my marketing work, I work as a teacher for the elderly twice a week, to ensure a seamless transaction from the analogue world into the digital. When I'm not teaching I volunteer as as a computer expert at the local elderly center, helping the elderly with everything from writing an email to their loved ones, to fixing virus infected computers. I know the importance of deadlines and high-quality work, and when I say yes to help with a task I dedicate time and energy to complete it perfectly. Extracts of Social Media work: www.facebook.com/Ras2Ranten www.facebook.com/ihaderslev www.facebook.com/HaderslevButikker www.facebook.com/Vojenssundhedbalance Linkedin profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jesperbkskov Additional information: In 2013 I lived in Tokyo, Japan for half a year to study the Japanese culture, and I was amazed when I saw how things could be done completely different than the Danes would have done it. This experience thought me to see solutions and answers in almost everything. It was an amazing experience.

    United States - Last active: 03/28/2014 - Tests: 29 - Portfolio: 16

    Have you ever hired a designer to create the perfect work but they didn’t quite capture your vision? Did you find the ideal freelancer but they had to bail out before finishing the project? Were you satisfied with your contractor but the agreement didn’t include revisions and you need a change made yesterday? I can fix that for you, stat. My specialty is doctoring, editing, retouching, re-creating and otherwise improving designs using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I draw my own elements, find great stock and match your layout to make that almost-perfect image into exactly what you were looking for. That’s not all though. I also write high quality, well-researched keyword-rich content, edit and proofread existing written work, offer exceptional customer experience support and training, and provide many other solutions for the enrichment of your business. If you experience the occasional emergency that requires an experienced graphic medic or if your workload is overflowing and you need someone who knows how to triage, save me as a favorite or hire me today!
