    You need it, I write it!

    United States - Tests: 4

    We do "highly technical writing", or tech writing that the average tech writer can't do because they're not actually...that...technical after all. When you need material designed for engineers/scientists, contact us! We do a lot of patent work for individual inventors, especially in the areas of electrical/mechanical engineering and software (not biotech or chemical). We even do academic writing (standardized tests, quizzes, etc.) Please visit our website www.averyenterprises.net for detailed information about us.

    Customized Translation and Editing Services

    Venezuela - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 2

    "I highly recommend Mohamad. He performed his task [...] with more care and efficiency than any other worker I have ever hired. He was proactive and understood instructions immediately [...]. He always submitted his work by the set deadline. When sent last-minute extra work towards the end of the project, he found imaginative ways to complete the additional workload quickly. Mohamad is fast, reliable, and remarkably thoughtful. [...] I am looking forward to continue collaborating with him in the future.” You're here because you (or your clients) are looking for translations that are "ready-to-publish". You hate working with mediocre translators that will end up costing you extra time and money, since their work will end up needing rounds of revisions. The testimonial I shared proves that you won't need to worry about the quality of my work, making me a valuable asset in your team.
