    About Me

    United States - Tests: 2

    I am a Permanent Resident here and I have lived 25 years of my life in Iran before I immigrate to United States. I graduated with a B.A in English Literature from Shiraz University; I have worked part time and full time as an English teacher, translator and assistant in different schools and agencies. I exhibit many qualities that constitute a cross cultural educator. I spend a considerable amount of my time researching different subjects for my translations and classes, on a daily basis. I currently use a combination of search engines, libraries and sometimes eBooks for my purpose. I also teach English to a variety of learners, coming from different ages and social class; establishing a successful connection with the students while using modern methods of teaching to ensure a live and effective stream of learning. My former Students’ skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening were greatly improved at the end of each semester. I also was an administrative assistant in International Organization of Migration, easing communication between the IOM members and Afghan refugees with oral translations and guidance. My skills in English and oral presentations resulted in a very smooth communication between the refugees and the staff. These positions afforded me the opportunity to have direct interactions with diverse populations of people and therefore helped to foster my skills and knowledge as an educator and an organizer.

    Native French translator and editor

    France - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 2

    A native French speaker with an international business background, I perform translations from English and Spanish into French. (As a general rule, translators translate to their native language(s) only - caveat emptor). I pay close attention to detail, context and terminology in order to provide accurate and adapted translations. I very much enjoy international communication and have over 10 years of experience in international academic research management and copy-editing. I am on the reserve list of translators of the European Union. Communication is key for translations, so I am always available to interact with clients and address any concern they may have. I translate all types of texts by my specialities include: administration, business, international policy, current affairs, economics.

    John Comeau

    expert troubleshooter, generalist developer, tenacious problem solver

    United States - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    "Jack of all trades, master of none" is typically said in a derogatory fashion, but I adopt the title gladly, and you will not likely find more than a few dozen generalists worldwide who can match my troubleshooting and problem-solving skills. I've been programming, on and off, for 40 years, if you count my study of BASIC in 1968, 6 years before I actually got my hands on a computer: the DECSystem-10 at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. As a result of working on computers and microcontrollers of various sizes and capabilities over the years, I have learned to get to the basics of a problem, come up with a prototype solution, and refine it to the customer's satisfaction. My methodology, which I found later is used by many successful programmers, is "build one to throw away"... once the code is working, rewrite it from scratch, correcting the false assumptions made in the first attempt, and refactoring to make a clean, maintainable, codebase. My background in both the electrical/electronics side of things plus years of experience reverse-engineering and improving software on dozens of different architectures gives me the rounded background necessary to take on projects which leave specialists lost. I may charge more than most ($100 is my usual rate, but I found it's unrealistic on Odesk), but when you've run up against a brick wall, I can likely find a way over, around, or through it.
