    A bi-lingual business owner with strong communication skills.

    United States - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 4

    People look for information on the internet every day. Many are frustrated at search results geared toward people, using technical jargon that they wouldn’t use even once in their lifetime. They want to find information they are looking for, and to understand that information as they read, without having to go to other sites or open a dictionary to find the meaning to the words on the page. My specialist area is natural medicine. I have made aromatherapy and herbal remedies for myself, family and clients. I have researched and implemented research from many sources. I know what works, and what does not. Employ me and I will take the guess work out of natural remedies. I have posted recipes on the internet as well as blog posts on herbals and aromatherapy. My work is concise and easy to read, without being condescending to the reader. The average consumer can tell the difference between an experienced healer versus someone simply repeating what they have read in books or on the internet. They want advice on what to purchase (or how to use things they have already purchased). They are looking to be inspired by information, not be spoken to in a tone that belittles them, which so many ghost written books can do. That is where I come in. I will provide the information they are searching for in an e-book that makes them feel comfortable, empowered, and eager for the next installment. I am also a fiction writer and poet. I can provide for your readers an experience that makes them hunger to turn the page. I put them in the story with vivid descriptions and characters that you reader can relate to and fall in love with while reading the story. My poetry inspires and uplifts. It also evokes many emotions on different levels. Hire me now to get the edge you need and keep your clients coming back for more.

    Data entry specialist, VA, translator and a creative writer

    United Kingdom - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 2

    I specialize in data scraping and data entry. I can find you addresses, reviews, discussion boards and target groups and compile the data into an Excel or Google spreadsheet that makes it easy to access and analyze. I can also draft you an overview of the data, mentioning any trends or concerns it raises. I also do transcribing and translating. I can transcribe English and Finnish audio and translate Finnish to English and English to Finnish texts, as well as Swedish to Finnish or Swedish to English texts. I have translated creative writing, articles, Google AdWords, e-mails and websites and interviews and short movies. As a blog and forum moderator, I provide you with well-thought and clearly articulated posts and comments. I am not interested in jobs where I would be required to spam, because I believe posting blatant advertisements will only serve to hurt your company's image. My biggest passion is writing. That is why I did my Bachelor's degree on screenwriting and volunteer as a moderator on a writing forum, where I also mentor younger writers and give them feedback on their texts. As an editor I can help you brainstorm or go through your writing with a fine-tooth comb, or mentor you with poetry or screenwriting. As a writer, I do not limit myself to genres. Tell me what you need and I will create it for you. I have also produced short movies and tv programs, which taught me a lot about project work and project management, and working as a General Manager at a cinema taught me business and marketing. These experiences, as well as my language and writing skills, are something I pour into all that I do.
