    Writer, Editor, Translator

    Netherlands - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 4

    I am a writer who's got a proven track record for delivering. I am knowledgeable, thorough, and precise. I do meticulous research of the topics I am given, and even for the fiction that I write. I am, by nature, a detail-oriented person. My past history includes medical school and graduate-level research, as well as laboratory work and editing scientific papers. As for translating, I have lived in the Netherlands for seven years, and have taken and passed the NT2. My approach to translating is less than literal, but I've always felt that if you can discern that the document is a translation, then the translator has failed. I endeavor not to leave any awkward traces of Dutch.

    Canadian living in London. I am enthusiastic, energetic, creative, and passionate about every new task I take on. I have a passion for the English language and love creative writing, editing, and any project that allows me to be imaginative with words while still making use of excellent spelling, grammar, and punctuation (I'm a bit of a stickler in that regard!). I have years of photography and photo-editing experience, professional training as a classical and opera singer (and a variety of other genres), experience working with children, visual merchandising experience, and many, many years spent in retail honing my customer service skills. I am hardworking, highly motivated, reliable and responsible, with a desire to excel in all that I do. While I've got a lot of experience under my belt, there is so much more to gain, so I am always eager to learn new skills and expand my knowledge.

    Video Script Writer Extraordinaire

    United States - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 4

    Although I am a academic, copy, content and creative writer my specialty is video script writing- animated, whiteboard, narrated, training and sales. Even though academic and creative writing is based on quality content it is also based on the quantity of words- clients are always seeking a word count. Video script writing requires a completely different process and mindset than academic, copy, content and creative writing. It requires the writer to be able to take a large volume of content and reduce it to a bare minimum word count that can immediately gain a viewers attention and retain it throughout the entire video. The ability to write effective video scripts is skill that cannot be perfected overnight. I pledge to provide my clients with a degree of quality that they will be pleased to call their own. I am self motivated, hard working, detailed oriented, flexible and reliable. I believe that communication is significant in any business relationship. I have found that asking the right questions at the beginning of an assignment ensures that not only will be completed ahead of schedule it will exceed the client’s expectations. My goal is to provide my Odesk clients with exceptional quality at reasonable cost and 100% satisfaction. Not only does a satisfied client leave positive feedback, they are likely to be a repeat client. Each client, no matter the duration or size of the assignment, should be treated with the up most respect. I am seeking to develop long term relationships that will be mutually beneficial for both the client and myself.
