    Israel - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 5

    I am currently a college lecturer in Academic English. I work as a freelance translator that translates both from Hebrew to English and from English to Hebrew - (mother tongue in both languages!). I've also worked on numerous online projects building websites, blogs, Prezi presentations, etc. In addition, I'm very tech savvy. Translating experience: - extensive experience in translating documents, articles, software projects, university papers, etc. - professional, efficient, accurate and punctual Prezi presentation samples: This is a short presentation I did for a family member for a breif work interview/presentation: http://prezi.com/iejgwsvmfxbz/?utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=copy Here are a few academic presentations for a Master's program - at a top University - on a variety of different topics: http://prezi.com/gl7v6q8scxao/?utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=copy https://prezi.com/idqrx0mmvnwy/edit/#0_73901241 http://prezi.com/p8u3hjzb6o7q/?utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=copy This one was requested to be a simple presentation, and with the slides in newspaper format along with Hebrew and English slides: https://prezi.com/9b9h9dr_3ewd/journalistic-ethics-objectivity-existential-journalism-st/?utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=copy Please note that some of these were more visually based, because they were based on scripts and they wanted more of a visual representation of what they were presenting. Of course, I adapt what is asked of me into the presentation, and make any changes if necessary based on what is wanted or asked for by the client. For further information on my vast experience, please message me. I hope this gave you a good enough example, and look forward to hearing from you! Hila
