    Nevin Flanagan

    Software Developer

    United States - Last active: 07/07/2014 - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 1

    I love fixing, completing and polishing things. If your work doesn't need fixing because it hasn't been done yet, I like building it to keep it from needing fixing later. I'm good at talking to people and explaining things, no matter what sorts of things they do and don't know as much about. I am especially eager to make learning and entertainment experiences as accessible, engrossing and transparent as they can be.

  8. Sayaka T.

    A receptionist at a hostel in Tokyo

    New Zealand - Last active: 02/21/2014 - Tests: 10

    I would like to work on projects such as Japanese-English translation, writing critiques/reviews of films with illustration, and art projects that allow me to express myself. I have NO previous experiences in translation and it is because I have never been given the opportunity before. I believe the problem with translation industry is that you always need to submit your previous works and prove how many projects you have done. If you are never given a chance, you cannot prove to the world what you are capable of. I was born in Japan and raised in Japan, but I chose to go to the US and Australia in highschool so I struggled through cultural experiences and became a bilingual. I have always put myself in customer service jobs because I truly enjoy face to face communication. I have been a server, a receptionist, and an English instructor. One of the aspects that fascinates me and motivates me is finding out needs and demands of the customers/clients and providing them services that exceed their expectation. Although I have thoroughly enjoyed my prevoius work experiences, I would like to keep challenging myself in new fields. I would like to start working online as a translator and an English tutor. I am very responsible and hard working. My weakness is that I sometimes push myself too hard and sacrifice hours to reach for perfection and to get my own satisfaction. I am willing to learn. I look forward to working with other highly skilled and talented individuals.
