    Native English Speaker, Proofreader, Creative Writing, Blog Writing

    United Kingdom - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 7

    SKILLS: - Native speaker of English, excellent English skills, both written and oral. - Documents will be changed with all necessary improvements, with careful attention to spelling, punctuation, grammar, sentence structure and context. - Communication with clients via email whenever needed. My passion for English has led me down the route of proofreading, writing and the academic study of English Literature. Throughout my entire academic career I have often proofread a number of professional applications and academic papers.These include university personal statements, professional business letters and master's degree level essays. Additionally,I have had previous experience as a volunteer teaching assistant, whereby I have taught children aged 11 to 15 basic mathematics. I also have daily practice of my proofreading skills through the language learning website Lang-8.com, whereby I edit user submissions and explain my corrections in a clear and concise manner to non native speakers of English.

    EXPERT Bilingual ENGLISH/FRENCH/U.K. ENG. Translator/Proofreader

    France - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 21 - Portfolio: 8

    As a French native state-employed English Teacher for quite a number of years, I can provide accurate translations from English into standard French from FRANCE, and the other way round. I worked for "Gengo.com" for a year only, but unlike them, so far, I can translate into genuine UK English all types of documents at the rate of $0.06/word, that can be as low as $0.04 for high volumes starting from 3,000 words ( and $0.08/word for technical and legal translation jobs), and my test- results speak for themselves. Given my background, I can deliver truly academic, as well as audience-oriented translations. However, I now refuse to translate content for e-commerce sites selling illegal products in FRANCE, as the shoppers would have problems with the French customs, or even worse, with the police. I also refuse to proofread what appears to be plain machine-translation or clearly post-edited machine translation jobs, from either other contractors (you should just ask for a refund!) or customers. Fair enough, isn't it? Now, please have a look at my portfolio, and you will see what I mean! Finally, I now have experience in simultaneous 3-way translation over the phone (see my profile).

    Editor, Writer, FR-EN Translator

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 10

    My facility with words derives from a love of literature and a background in French, teaching English, and editing. Over the past 7 years, I've had the opportunity to work with a variety of texts, from academic papers to blogs to web content to novels, and various style guides, including AP, APA, MLA, and Chicago. Though my heart lies in fiction, I'm equally at home with non-fiction; my particular interest areas include sociology, anthropology, psychology, environmental issues, healthy living, nutrition, women's studies, feminist theory, queer theory, critical theory, and critical race theory. However, I welcome all types of texts. Let me help make your pen indeed mightier than the sword, whether it is simply proofreading for small errors or copy editing/line editing to improve structure, flow, word choice, clarity, coherence, and the like. With me, your texts and documents are in good hands.

    A creative, witty, inspired entrepreneurial gal.

    United States - Last active: 9 days ago

    I was born to be a freelancer (I say "Heck No!" to cubicles), and love meeting new clients through Elance and oDesk! I make half of my income through online content creation, social media marketing, blogs, and any other copy work that comes my way. The second half of my income sprouts from my outside creative endeavors where I am an actress and video producer in Portland, Oregon. Creativity and discipline are a great match for me, and I hope to share them with you on your next project. I work well independently and in a team and am trained in article marketing, link building, and social media. Research is my forte, and I have no problem incorporating keywords seamlessly. My clients span diverse fields from kids science education, landscaping, wood floor sanding, and even UVC technology. I am willing to tackle anything, and truly enjoy helping businesses communicate with their desired audience. Message me today for ideas and rates on your next project!

    Expert for translations, editing and ghostwriting

    United Kingdom - Last active: 7 days ago

    I am a German native speaker, but have been living in Kent/England for 25 years. I graduated from Bonn University in 1984 with an MA-equivalent (First State Exam) after studying English, French and German language and literature and teaching first-year-students during my final terms. I spent the 1978/9 winter term at Edinburgh University where I did a course about systemic grammar and the teaching of literature. I learned that the interpretation of poetry can be based on a matter-of-fact analysis of the structure and how it deviates from ordinary language. This made teaching poetry much easier and clearer, accessible even to sceptics who insisted that interpreting poetry was a matter of taste. After 18 months at the Wiesbaden Teacher Training College I got my teaching qualification (Second State Exam)and decided to teach abroad. With my experience in teaching A-level German I feel well equipped to tackle most translations from English to German or vice versa.
