    PAGES international-Translation, Writing and Proofreading

    Canada - Last active: 28 days ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 10

    French is my first language and I spent years studying it, earning a Master's Degree in French Literature in the process. Twelve years ago I moved to Alberta, Canada where I became fluent in English. There I also started teaching French to students in French Immersion and to university students. About 4 years ago, I started working as a professional translator, mostly English to French, and I had the opportunity to work on texts from a variety of fields: from travel to aviation safety, with a detour by light and heavy industries, software and education. I offer services in English-French translation (5 years experience), French Proofreading and writing in French. I have a Master's Degree in French Literature and I am fluent in English. I have been published in both languages, mostly in French. Newspaper articles, web content and short stories are some of the things I produced.

    If loving social media and online marketing is wrong, I don't want to be right! I am a 25 year old graduate of the University of Central Missouri, with a B.S in Communication Studies. My education was focused on social influence in media, and my experience is mainly in social media marketing. I am looking for part-time work to supplement my income. While I am open to any industry, I am most interested in arts, entertainment, publishing, animals, health, and science.

    Legal Research, Writing, and Litigation Support Professional

    United States - Last active: 10 days ago - Tests: 2

    I am a licensed attorney (Iowa & Florida) with over ten years of legal research and writing experience, graduated in the top 10% of my law school class, was Captain of Drake University Law School’s National Moot Court Team, and earned my MBA while completing law school. I've been self-employed as a Freelance Law Clerk for the past five years. Prior to this position, I practiced healthcare and corporate law for two years in Bradenton, Florida. I left Bradenton to accommodate my husband's career and we currently reside in California, but I work with attorneys and law firms nationwide. I've worked on projects in a variety of practice areas, including: medical malpractice, personal injury, health care compliance, corporate transactional, ERISA, family law, bankruptcy, and general business litigation. I am also experienced at drafting and editing omplex legal documents, such as pre-trial motions, supporting memoranda, client opinion letters, appellate briefs, and various transactional agreements. Recently, I’ve had the pleasure of working for the legal and compliance departments at a major national Professional Employer Organization – my primary responsibilities in this role are to review the PEO’s contracts and policies to ensure compliance with state and federal regulations and to modify the PEO’s contracts, policies, and agreements to bring them into compliance. I was also tasked with overhauling the PEO’s master service agreement – the agreement that is used with every PEO client – a project that required more than 50 hours of detailed and complex contract drafting. While the PEO’s compliance director is on maternity leave, I’ve also been hired to review and revise various contracts with clients and vendors. I am looking for additional legal research, writing, editing, and litigation support projects. Please browse my website (http://www.lrw4attorneys.com) to learn more about my qualifications and experience. PLEASE NOTE -- My Florida and Iowa bar licenses are INACTIVE. By law, I am only authorized to work for licensed attorneys - I cannot work for private individuals or provide legal advice. Any services provided through oDesk are not done in an attorney-client capacity.

    Professional Writer and Editor, degree in English and Creative Writing

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 2

    I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Art in English and Creative Writing. In the years since graduating from college I have held positions as an Editor in Chief, Administrative Assistant, Chief Blogger, and various other positions wich involved a great deal of professional writing. I believe my writing ability is what sets me apart from other freelancers on the site. I am also adept at administrative tasks such as data entry, creating schedules, communicating with clients, and other organizational duties. Some of my skills include typing a clean 90 WPM, basic HTML knowledge, a strong proficiency in all Word software, professional editing, writing, administrative tasks, and having 11 years of professional experience in these fields. As you can also see from my tests I placed 1st out of 400k+ test takers on the US Spelling Test. Aside from the professional description above I am absolutely in love with writing and words. I've always been told I have a knack for writing the perfect description that people never knew they wanted. Since I was young I devoured books like The Hobbit and a lot of children's books. I decided after college I wanted to devote myself to actually doing what I went to college for. And living in a small town doesn't lend well for writing outside of your home. So I decided the best step to take was to become a freelancer and help people all over the world with their writing needs. I've written everything from stories about video games to a memorial for a loved one. I hope by reading this you can see just how much I love to write. If you're looking for someone who is truly passionate about reading, writing, and language in general, I hope you contact me and let me assist you with the perfect phrase. - Ashley

    United Kingdom - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 2

    I am a Market Research professional with seven years of work experience in research and consulting assignments. As part of the continuous learning path my skills have been leveraged extensively to provide research, analysis and insights. Few projects where i have been involved in include: Awareness of the medical devices sector in Brazil: Provided a market evaluation study for the medical devices market in Brazil. The study was used by the client to enhance the current awareness of the sector by the British Embassy in Brazil Effects of Snow in Northern Europe and US Airports– Was involved in a quick turnaround project requiring me to develop a database of the snow that hit Northern Europe and the US (2010) and how different airports coped with this thereby using it as a tool to manage such situations in the future. Restructuring of a major player in energy market – As a part of the team that restructured a major producer and distributor of energy in the United States of America, I provided critical litigation support by researching and providing intelligence on entities which wanted to merge with and/or acquire the client. This information was used to dissuade the bankruptcy court from selling off the client and eventually led to the corporation’s turnaround . I also analyzed competitors financial statements and valuations for the client’s plan of reorganization I strongly believe that with my extensive skills in market research, a futuristic mindset and the ability to learn and implement varied concepts will add value to meet customer expectations.
