    Hi, I have been writing speeches, articles and short stories; editing, researching and re-writing articles, speeches and creative writing for almost 20 years. I have been translating from Afrikaans to English and vice versa for almost as long as I can remember and transcribing a lot of confidential work. I have an excelent grasp of the English (american and british) and Afrikaans languages. You can rely on me to always strive for excelence and to finish my work in the least possible time but the highest possible quality. I find myself with a little more time on my hands lately and I'm looking for a new challenge, translating online keeps the creative juices flowing and the work stays interesting because you never know what will be next. Thank you for keeping my application in mind.

    Romania - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 6

    I want to make your product/service/business sound like it's the best thing your potential client can find on the market. I write engaging content that focuses on improving SEO, by using the perfect keyword density in easy-to-read content. I always go the extra mile to give my client the finished product that he expects. Deadlines are very important to me, and I am never late to deliver. Most of my writing relates to: product descriptions, product reviews, and SEO orientated blogging. Creative writing is a part of marketing-orientated content writing, but I see them as two different skills. Regular content writing involves research, and it has a predetermined goal. Creative writing is a passion for me, and I want to include my passion in my work as much as possible.
