    Writer and translator

    Germany - Last active: 12/10/2014 - Tests: 4

    I'm an English-German translator and writer with many years of experience in translating, fiction and blog writing, journalism and teaching. For me it's fun to strive for the perfect expression that tells your reader exactly what you want to say, no matter if the content is fiction, business or science. I worked a lot in the medical and social sector, as a writer and a teacher. Besides my degree in German Literature and Language and Historical Sciences I still have a passion for history and research.

    Expert in translations, copywriting, advertising, dialogue marketing

    Switzerland - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 5

    Creative, out of the box marketing expert in translations, copywriting advertising and dialogue marketing Although I’m new on ODesk a have gained over 20 years of experiences in Marketing with a strong focus on communication and the way we can and should communicate with our customers to reach our goals. I have gained experience in dialogue and direct marketing, copywriting, translating, design, concepts, (business) analyses, business intelligence, communication, public relations, press, (creative) advertising and media. My vision and way of work: Marketing and communication looks easy. Translating and copywriting is easy. But what makes a good text or advertisement an excellent text or advert? An excellent text or advert is able to transport and awake feeling(s) with the reader(s), the targeted customers. It should bring atmosphere and an experience to the reader(s) in the same way as the original native text and or the product(s) and services do. It's all about selecting the right words, the right tone of voice, sophisticated, simple and stylish. Also every text should be SEO and SEA proof and duplicate content (wording) should be avoided. In Off-line and in Online text and adverts. Always select the right and correct words, wording, phrases and headline(s). And last but not least: write short, simple understandable sentences. We only have a few seconds to catch the reader(s) attention and don’t be afraid for a little be of humor. It is always my goal to translate, write text and make adverts in such a way that the product and services are able to sell themselves. The local reader(s) and targeted customer should be able to identify him-, herself with the product and services you offer in his own language (verbal and non-verbal). Text should be written with respect to the reader(s) and his/her specific cultural background and habits. It should be understandable when translated in his/ her language. This is what I call adding value to translations, copywriting and other marketing projects I do. If this is what you are looking for? Please contact me to discuss your project. Need other marketing support and or need advice for your project? Such as: strategy, sales, product- management, database-management, customer profiling and analyses, business intelligence, (web) analytics, E-Business, direct-marketing, loyalty-marketing or research? Send me a short message and we can discuss your and my potential. Need creative and out of the box ideas? Guerilla marketing is also one of my specialties.

    Computational Linguist

    United States - Last active: 10/24/2012

    An internally motivated NLP engineer with a passion for computational linguistics and an inability to relax. Just as comfortable fifteen pages into a research paper as committing code to a weekly build. Experience in syntax/semantics, text analysis, named entity recognition, sentiment analysis, and parsing social media makes for a silver bullet on any problem with unstructured text. This stuff keeps me up at night.

    Eric Zink

    foreign language instructor and translator

    Germany - Last active: 03/03/2014 - Tests: 15 - Portfolio: 4

    I have a fantastic flair for formulating ideas elegantly in English. I have an instinctive feel for what makes a document readable, and I love to polish a text and make it shine. If you have something that needs proofreading, I'm your man. I have a great deal of experience wrestling with intractable German texts. This gives me fluency in reading and has brought me into contact with a wide variety of resources that help me master vocabulary and concepts with which I am not yet intimately familiar. I have taught English as a second language in Germany for 15 years. The last six have been at the Bamberg Academy for Interpreters and Translators. For the past two years, I have been building a base of clients for my freelance translation/proofreading work.
