    Freelance Writer/Translator

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 6

    I have three bachelors of arts in English, European Studies, and Chinese Literature. I am a hard working, intelligent and extremely dedicated individual with expertise in writing, editing, and translation. I have previous work experiences in sales, teaching, and legal assistance, giving me an edge in writing contents or articles for these specific fields. I am a native English speak with absolute fluency in Mandarin. I have studied in Paris, therefore have basic French communication skills. I have traveled and worked in China and most parts of Europe, and can therefore offer more in-depth writing. I am seeking editing, translating, content writing, and any other writing or illustration related work. I have written three thesis while in school and understand how to write and edit research papers or any research related writing. I am also adept in translating from English to Chinese and vise versa. I have done translation work for both legal firms and private companies (mainly dealing with purchase and contracts). My typing speed is approximately 80 words per minute and can translate approximately 2 pages per hour depending on density and complexity. I am also qualified in editing and checking for spelling, grammar, and general formatting mistakes. I can work most hours during the week, including weekends. Although I live in PST, I can accommodate certain times and people based on my freelance schedule. I can be reached easily by either email or Skype. If the need ever arises, I live in Southern California and can schedule meetings as well.

    Multi-Media Journalist, Writer, and Artist

    United States - Last active: 12 days ago - Tests: 4

    I'm a professional multi-media journalist who can write, edit, research, produce, and design high-quality content on almost any topic and for any medium. From creating blog and social media posts to complete marketing communications plans, I have worked with clients including university programs, acupuncturists, chefs, commercial painters, e-commerce sites, news sites and forums, and more. I do not compromise my high ethical standards. Sorry, but I do not accept jobs that involve "ghostwriting" without credit, "spinning" and stealing others' copyrighted work, or other shady practices. What you get with me is a passionate, hard-working, detail-oriented, mass communications expert. What you do not get is someone who will rush the job or be a mindless "yes man" -- if I accept a job then I am committing to give you my best work effort, and that includes sometimes offering suggestions or advice -- getting you the final product you NEED, not just the one you think you want. I generally do not do Skype interviews or meetings for any projects paying less than $1,000. I am happy to answer any questions through ODesk or email, and I am happy to do a trial period for any ongoing positions. Sorry, but the reason I choose to do online freelancing is to make my own schedule and work in my pajamas; if you can't deal with that then best of luck finding someone who is a better fit for you.

    I am a multi-talented creative thinker with an academic twist. I have always loved art and writing but I studied Psychology and Economics at University instead. I started my career tutoring young adults as well as children with special needs and only recently returned to my love of art by taking courses in Graphic Design. All of this means that I can draw from many different sources of experience to produce excellent results in a host of different fields. I look forward to working with you!
