    Creator Language & Design

    Spain - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 8

    Communicate your ideas, wrap them nicely, and connect with your audience. I help people communicate in English, Spanish and German, as well as through visuals. My working languages are English, Spanish and German. I translate and create content and design that will resonate with the target audience. After all your goal is to convert your visitors into clients. I enjoy being creative and coming up with new original ideas. I love design and in addition to creating web content I am always broadening my insights on marketing effective web design. I am happy to share my knowledge and help you improve your communication. Great content is useless if nobody reads it. I am a German native speaker and nearly native in English and Spanish, as well as fluent in French. As a language learning fan I speak a few other languages on a basic or intermediate level, but English, German and Spanish have been my working languages for many years. I have a degree in law and have worked as a corporate and M&A lawyer for 6 years. But following my passions I have spent a lot of my spare time studying psychology and graphic design. Today I combine the experience I have gathered in translation, multilingual communication, and negotiation as a lawyer with the marketing, writing and design skills, to create your content.

    Bilingual Support Manager - Expert Translator (EN-ES)-Graphic Designer

    Argentina - Last active: 25 days ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 9

    My objective is ideally to find a long-term (Part-time or Full time) job where I can work from home in the translation, customer service, or Graphic Design field. Thanks to oDesk, I've had the joy of working for some amazing companies as a Bilingual Support Manager (ES-EN) for the past 2 years. Before moving to oDesk I worked as a Dish Network Rep. here in Argentina for the States and personal translator/secretary for my employer who handled these US Dish Network Accounts for 5 years. I also worked as a law firm secretary, I'm a Law student and I'm working to obtain my Juris Doctor. My native tongue is Spanish, however, I was raised up in Columbus, Ohio so my English is fluent and I'd be more than happy to offer a voice call demonstration on Skype or any other available voice call service to verify my pronunciation and common knowledge of both languages. I have taken the Spanish- English Translation tests here on oDesk and I'm in the TOP 10% of test takers. I'm very responsible with due dates and easy to get a hold of online if anything should come up. I'm in the -3 GMT Time zone and available during US office hours. Well, that's about it! Feel free to browse around my profile or get in touch with me - I'm a proud 5 star contractor! Hope to work with you soon!
