    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

    Hello! I am a Mechanical Design Engineer offering eight (8) years of product-development experience within manufacturing settings across multiple industries including aerospace, consumer products, medical, industrial, and energy. During my time in the aerospace industry I’ve honed my skills and proven my ability to create cost-effective, cutting-edge designs that meet project and product specifications. Also I’m an expert user of CAD programs and skilled producer of mechanical engineering documentation and drawings. I have 14 years of experience with 2D and 3D CAD design. I am proficient in structural analysis, mechanics, process engineering, and thermodynamics. My aptitude in CAD extends to systems and product design including components and assemblies, detail drawings, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T), assembly drawings, engineering BOM’s, and stress analysis. From 2008-2013 I worked at Blue Origin in Kent WA as a design engineer for the propulsion and structural/mechanical groups. Through my engineering knowledge I developed design solutions for aerospace vehicles, systems, and components in the conceptual design phase, as well as, having sole responsibility for specific vehicle subsystems and hardware throughout the design process. Over the course of this position I worked on 3 different space vehicles. I was the responsible engineer for tests of integrated systems on multiple occasions. This entailed orchestrating tests and leading groups of people. In the last year I have worked as a freelance mechanical design engineer during which time my cross industry exposure has been significant particularly relating to injection molded plastic parts, consumer product design, 3D printing, and design automation (API). Please take your time to look through my profile and/or resume and let me know if I can be of assistance. Sincerely, David Mitchell

    Swedish-English translations, copy writing & voice services

    Germany - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 8

    If you need top notch web content, copy writing, translations or voice-over - I'm here to help you out! I help companies create content which captivates their customers, drives sales and provides a consistent corporate identity. Regardless if short slogans, longer marketing texts, newsletters, press releases or blogs - I make your brand stand out in a unique way suited for your target groups. When translating I work hard on finding expressions which sound natural in the target language - not just word for word translation. I can translate a wide variety of themes, from children's stories to technical translations, although my main focus is marketing texts. I'm a native Swede with very high English proficiency which makes me able to translate between Swedish and English. Living in Germany I am starting to take on translations from German into English and Swedish. I also provide limited translation services from Norwegian, Danish and Portuguese into Swedish or English. If you need voice-over for your marketing video, app, children's story or training course I have several years of recording experience, professional equipment and a well sound-proofed recording room to make it sound perfect. I have sound engineering training and can deliver the material ready for use. I mainly do voice-over in Swedish but I can also provide English voice-over with a slight Swedish accent. Hire me when you want a multi-talented person doing her utmost to provide you with highly valuable content for your business!
