    Skilled in languages and culture

    Denmark - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 2

    Profile description: Top strengths: 1. International understanding. 2. 3 languages: English, German and Danish. 3. The ability to plan and organize. 4. Seeing simple and effective solutions. My name is Jesper Skov – a Dane with a flair for marketing, language and culture. I have a BA in English communication and marketing, and love my daily interaction with both language and culture. I have worked in different sectors trough out the years, which all had something to do with either language or communication. I have worked at firms selling everything from power tools, safety equipment to website development. Translating from English to Danish is one of my strongest assets, and I have been doing so for almost 5 years now. Most of the work has been technical translation, which gave me the tools to learn about a new product or field fairly quickly, to ensure correct translation. During the day I work at an marketing agency, helping clients increase their sales and get there message out. We create Social Media Campaigns, Webpages and write campaign texts. In addition to my marketing work, I work as a teacher for the elderly twice a week, to ensure a seamless transaction from the analogue world into the digital. When I'm not teaching I volunteer as as a computer expert at the local elderly center, helping the elderly with everything from writing an email to their loved ones, to fixing virus infected computers. I know the importance of deadlines and high-quality work, and when I say yes to help with a task I dedicate time and energy to complete it perfectly. Extracts of Social Media work: www.facebook.com/Ras2Ranten www.facebook.com/ihaderslev www.facebook.com/HaderslevButikker www.facebook.com/Vojenssundhedbalance Linkedin profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jesperbkskov Additional information: In 2013 I lived in Tokyo, Japan for half a year to study the Japanese culture, and I was amazed when I saw how things could be done completely different than the Danes would have done it. This experience thought me to see solutions and answers in almost everything. It was an amazing experience.

    Content Developer

    United States - Last active: 08/13/2013 - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

    I work as a freelance writer. I attended college at both the University of Southern Mississippi and the University of Alabama, where I majored in psychology. I possess excellent research and writing skills and can write about a wide variety of topics. I chose this career path because writing has always been my strongest skill and feels very natural for me. I am able to work quickly and efficiently under time constraints. I am proficient at many styles of writing, both academic and creative, and if I have not written in a particular style I am adept at picking it up quickly and adapting to it. I am easy to work with, not argumentative, and FAST. I will get the job done by deadline, usually before, and it will be high quality writing and exactly what you asked for. I am a native English writer. My work is 100 percent original and of my own imagination. I do not use spin or re-write programs which leave the work sounding awkward and computer-written. Odesk asked me to supply an hourly rate; however I rarely work for that amount or on an hourly basis. Sometimes I will work for less, if I have a low workload at the time and the project is not overly difficult. Other times I ask for a higher amount based on the difficulty of the project and amount of research required. Please inquire with details of your specific project and I will quote a rate for you.
