    Engineer in Computer Science - Developer - Research

    France - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 15 - Portfolio: 1

    Hello, I am a 27 years old engineer in Computer Science from France. After graduating from the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées of Rennes, I moved over to Sweden to follow a master program on Mobile Systems. Meanwhile, I was also working as a freelance web-developer/project co-leader for a Canadian company. While learning, I participated as a trainee to many professional project and learn to be flexible both in my ways of working in a team and on the technologies to use. Indeed, even so my major programming languages are Java and PHP, I could easily learn C# during my master thesis in Sweden and build up a nice piece of software to work with Sifteo cubes. Software architecture and system design are two of my strong background points, thus I thrive in realizing project from the beginning until the end. My professional experiences involved many non programmer and non computer scientist customers and allowed me to train establishing their needs and to translate them into sprints, backlog and deadlines. I also believe that knowledge in computer science without knowledge of the real world are wasted hence my interests for books, sail, roller-skating, ice hockey as well as environmental questions for instance. Looking forward to working with you.

    Reliable Quality Transcription at Reasonable Rates

    Philippines - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 4

    I love what I do, and I am good at it. Fluent in written and spoken English, I transcribe with a passion for quality and learning. Excellent customer service is a top priority. I take pride in having strong communication skills, a good work ethic, and a strong desire to produce the best possible outcome for every project I work on. I am enjoying my golden season, a second blossoming, so to speak: a time to draw from the lessons learned and the wisdom of the years; a time to turn to the creativity and the gifts I have often overlooked; and a time to stand back, think, and to gratefully appreciate everything I have been blessed with. I take pleasure in a life of simplicity with emphasis on faith, family, and friendships. Working from home is the most ideal lifestyle for me because I love being able to fit my work around my schedule; and, most importantly, I am home most of the time for the special needs of a loved one Transcribing and editing is a matter of personal style, and I recognize that variations in style will always exist. But there are some important guidelines to employ to produce a clean read. I don't just transcribe and type the words. I care about the finished product; therefore, I do my best to make the document as readable and accurate as possible. A good quality transcript begins with a good quality recording. It gives me great pleasure to be able to produce a good quality transcript. I make every effort to hear and understand what is said so as to eliminate as many indiscernible words as possible; but there will be times when I will not be able to do so especially with difficult audio which means background noise, speakers talking over each other, and muffled recordings. To avoid creative transcription or "guessing," those words and phrases will be clearly marked, highlighted, and time stamped for easy editing. If the project calls for a verbatim transcription, every word spoken including the speech disfluencies will be captured. Nonverbal communication such as pauses, laughter, sighing, crying will also be identified. If the project calls for a clean transcript, speech disfluencies such as stutters, verbal ticks, repetitive phrasing, false starts, minimal responses, etc. will be edited out. While minor grammatical edits will be done, I will remain as close to the spoken material as possible. Since the spoken word is more dynamic and immediate, it tends to be less precise. It may contain non-fluency features due to it being spontaneous. When people are speaking, they sometimes start and stop a lot of their sentences while they are trying to think of the best way to say something. Unless verbatim, only incomplete sentences that may add meaning to the transcription in some way will be included. Ellipsis points will be used to indicate interrupted speech, false starts and when a sentence trails off or when a speaker changes thought in mid-sentence; and dashes will be used for added emphasis or to stress a point. Good transcriptionists are able to adapt to different clients' preferences. So should you have any other specifications, please let me know.

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Portfolio: 3

    LONG-TERM ELANCE PROFESSIONAL – I'm a professional writer, editor, proofreader, and layout artist with 30+ years' experience. I hold two master's degrees (psychology and anthropology) and a certificate in nonfiction writing. I've been a successful freelancer for the past 11 years and have also worked for educational publishers, print shops, and daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly publications. I've written more than 150 children's books for educational publishers. I've edited a New York Times best-selling finance book, numerous books for prominent psychologists, and two books for a prominent professional coach. After taking Benchmark Education Company's copyediting test, the managing editor wrote: "You did fantastic on the test! In fact, yours was the best test I've seen in the two years I've given it." Another editor at Benchmark wrote: "You are a wonderful writer, a quick study, organized, and so on top of schedules that it is a pleasure working with you!" Service Description: I offer expert writing, copy editing, and proofreading services as well as graphic design/layout in InDesign. PLEASE NOTE: I *don't* write articles, web content, or marketing copy. WRITING: I've written more than 150 leveled children's books as well as more than one hundred reading passages for educational publishers such as Wright Group/McGraw-Hill, Benchmark Education Company, Trillium Publishing, Learning A-Z, and Evan-Moor. My strong suits include life science, earth science, geography, the human body, art, music, history, biography, and cultures around the world. I have a passion for life science topics and have a knack for rephrasing scientific content for young readers. NONFICTION COPY EDITING AND PROOFREADING: I tighten text and smooth it out, covering sentence structure and flow, voice, spelling, capitalization, punctuation, consistent verb tenses, parallel construction, correct word choices (e.g., "that" vs. "which"), and more. I can copyedit in Word or WordPress. I'm also an expert at reviewing layouts before publication. GRAPHICS: I'm a whiz at creating and proofing layouts for consistency and visual appeal. I can work in InDesign CS4 or CS5.5. Here are additional testimonials from satisfied clients: "I've worked for major New York book publishers and top-tier university presses, and Kira is one of the best copy editors I've encountered. She is an editor's dream: sharp, analytical, logical, detail-oriented, and a pleasure to work with. I rest easier knowing that she's on the case whenever she tackles one of my projects." -- John Rousselle, Editor, Reading A-Z "Best proofreader/editor I have ever worked with, and I've worked with many. Meticulous, extremely knowledgeable, and thorough -- she was born for this kind of work and does it extremely well." -- Andrew Neitlich, Founder and Director, The Center for Executive Coaching "Kira has a strong sense of language and writing style, and she has an incredible eye for even the smallest editorial details." -- Katherine Follett, Former Editor, Reading A-Z "Kira has edited for me for several years. She is thorough and quick, and her editing is the best! She takes my writing and makes it even better, offering an elegance of language as well as suggestions that are spot on. On top of all that, she is very easy to work with. I recommend her highly." -- Patrick Williams, EdD, Master Certified Coach, Founder of the Institute for Life Coach Training "The grammar gods sent you to me." -- Lawrence Ineno, MightyProse Ghostwriting & Copywriting "Amazing! Kira has an eye for detail like no other editor I've hired. I've worked with at least 7 in the last few years, and she's been the most thorough and professional one. I highly recommend her." -- Kyle Thompson, Big Fish Consulting "Kira has an incredibly sharp eye for language and layouts. She capitalizes on her extensive publishing experience and also consults appropriate reference tools to support her copyediting and proofing decisions. Kira also has an amazing ability to rephrase scientific text to suit an audience and to unravel obscure concepts for the reader in clear, concise terms." -- Douglas Tepper, Senior Editor, Science A-Z "The past year has been the most successful in our ten-year history, both from a quantity and quality perspective. Kira has been a huge part of that success. Her eye for design and her project management know-how have helped both our company and our customers enjoy a successful year. Working with Kira has allowed each of us to be more productive, while her attention to detail has cut our error rate to zero." -- Pete Dapper, Owner, Dapper & Associates "It is a pleasure to be able to count on Kira to consistently generate quality work.
