    Romania - Last active: 21 days ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 9

    Experience makes the difference between the average and the excellent. In creating online experiences that matter, you need a dedicated professional who works hard and has native skills - qualities I own and use with great respect towards the team I work with and your audience. How can your presence be different, unique and appealing in an online environment many times ruled by cliches and patterns? By adapting rules and innovating according to your distinct needs. By believing in all the differences people share and striving to customize your online presence accordingly. From the name of your company to deploying a project, your business has to speak to various people's needs and relate to their feelings. By helping you communicate who you are through a reliable online experience from start to finish, I support your causes and give others reasons to believe in you. If you feel we're on the same length, than we have a professional future together and I'm looking forward to sharing my skills and commitment with you and your business.

    Deadline Meeter, Accurate Translator, Relationship Expert

    Indonesia - Last active: 11 days ago - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 3

    I have been a translator, interpreter and tutor for 6 years now. When experience meets quality, you'll get yourself a man by the name of Yoshua; and yes, that's me! Native speakers usually admit that I speak like them - thus the proficiency level. ;) Rates actually vary depending on so many things - the one on my profile page is when you want to hire me as an interpreter. Talk to me if you need price quotations (there is a minimum figure that I would work for though - but believe me that you'll get what you pay for!). Have a great day/night!
