    United States - Last active: 09/19/2013 - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 2

    I graduated from Reed College with a B.A. in Linguistics, and have since been working as an article writer and language test designer. For the last year, I was an Item Development Manager for Avant Assessment, where I organized teams of language experts to find, categorize, and perfect passages linguistically relevant to assessment. While the company's approach was functional, focusing on assessment points based on their linguistic function, my academic Linguistic training is in formal Linguistics. As such, I feel I have been given a broader view of approaching language. As a writer, I have worked blogging about philosophy, science-fiction and fantasy, constructed languages, basic linguistic concepts, and most recently, game theory. Finally, I have been a tutor in English and Latin (in addition to math and sciences) for over 10 years, most recently tutoring students for the LSAT and the SAT I have excellent English skills, bolstered by my Linguistics background and my writing-intensive college.

    translation localization content-writing post-editing

    Italy - Last active: 09/07/2013 - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 7

    I started my freelance position as translator and proofreader, expanding my skills up to substantive editing, creative writing, copy-editing, ghost-writing. I really can work a text and make it sound most appropriate according to a specific context, target public, and degree of specialization. Boredom is something which I cannot stand. I think there is always something interesting to say, it only needs the right way to be communicated, and needs attention. In my opinion, flawless style and localization are the just basic stages of a good translation job: every text has its own public.
