    Freelance Designer

    France - Last active: 22 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 18

    Making beautiful things and making you smile. That's my job. Check out my portfolio here : www.behance.net/atlal /* --- MY WORK ---*/ 4 years of experience and a lot of passion later, here I am. On the fly, always up to date and responsive to your expectations. /* --- LANGUAGES ---*/ Native language : french. Native level (C2) : french, english Can understand/translate from (besides the ones mentioned above) : arabic, italian Can translate to : french & english, but particularly french. /* --- CODING ---*/ I prefer directly coding the websites I'm designing. Wasting time making it on photoshop first is something I'm not very fond of. I have some experience in php, mysql and jQuery but my 'ninja grasp' is in designing and putting it together html/css. But I have the ability to work with these languages, otherwise I wouldn't mention them :) /* --- TIME - PAY ---*/ I am always available and don't require much pay. I'm hard working and can work on projects even if they are time limited. I do not have a limit of working hours per week because I am not on any 'big' project right now that would take my time. So I'm a full timer. I can work as much as you need. NOTE CONCERNING WORK HOURS : - PLEASE consider my timezone if I'm not replying to your messages right away : it may be 3 AM, and I may be dreaming about your project. I usually reply within 5 minutes of your request, if not immediately. After long hours of hard work there's nothing better than a happy and satisfied customer, who I hope will be you.

I have written three thesis while in school and understand how to write and edit research papers or any research related writing. I am also adept in translating from English to Chinese and vise versa. I have done translation work for both legal firms and private companies (mainly dealing with purchase and contracts). My typing speed is approximately 80 words per minute and can translate approximately 2 pages per hour depending on density and complexity. I am also qualified in editing and checking for spelling, grammar, and general formatting mistakes. I can work most hours during the week, including weekends. Although I live in PST, I can accommodate certain times and people based on my freelance schedule. I can be reached easily by either email or Skype.
