    Zack Rutherford

    Scribe/Copywriter/Blogger

    United States - Last active: 9 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 1

    I am a talented linguistic navigator; a motivated and captivating wordsmith, selling my talents and slinging my style to the highest bidder. I write website content, sales copy, and SEO articles for online marketers to earn my bread, and I spout off at the mouth for the butter. I have a highly opinionated blog at http://Zackrex.com, which includes a portfolio as well as many sporadic ramblings for your reading pleasure. Your project, assignment, or article--whatever the case may be--can be interpreted in a voice as monotone and unenthusiastic as a phone book read aloud by Henry Kissinger, but you'd probably prefer a booming and bombastic concerto, painstakingly crafted to make ears ring with ecstatic pleasure and wallets open up with ardent zeal. If you're looking for the former, I suggest you find a different scribe. I specialize in the sort of syntax that sings while it sells. I also have a Bachelor's degree in English literature that I never got around to framing. You see, I live in a condo without an enclosed office and scarce wall space. I thought it better suited me to adorn my surroundings with Pink Floyd album covers and Salvador Dali paintings, rather than remind myself that I'm a dreary academic with an expensive piece of paper hanging above the P.C. So drop me a line, and we can make beautiful music together. Or I can write something for you. Whatever. I'm anything but picky.

    Experienced Norwegian Translator / SEO Specialist

    Norway - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 5

    I've always had a passion for the English language, and consider myself to have a higher capability in the language than most non-English people. I've done quite a few translation and proofreading jobs from/to English over the past 3 years, which I've found to expand my vocabulary even further. Over the past 3 years, I have worked on SEO (Search Engine Optimization) for countless websites, using mostly Moz and Google tools. My core value is to threat every project like my own, and will therefore always strive to be original, creative and thorough. I will never miss a deadline that has been agreed upon. I also have experience with Wordpress, Magento, Refinery, Excel, Linkbird and basic HTML.
