    Prolific and experienced Technical Writer

    Pakistan - Last active: 10 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 5

    I have received outsourced work for the past several years and have written mainly on topics with specific keywords including those that have required me to research the topic extensively. My goals are to provide the employer with ultimate satisfaction and content for a fee that is well worth the quality. I have always focused more on quality rather than quantity and hence am quite selective in seeking applications. One thing is sure: My work ethics ensure that you will never have at your hands a piece of content that doesn't meet your quality standards. Also, if your topic is even remotely technology related, I'm all ears!

    I am a professional writer and editor with experience in web content and high volume article editing. I absolutely despise reading something that has only been "spell checked" and not content and usage checked. Therefore, I am thorough, careful and clear in my work. I have a diverse background. I have a Bachelor's degree in Engineering. I have been a help desk supervisor for a large corporation. I have worked in Real Estate, both in sales and appraisals. I have also done telemarketing for a non-profit organization. Personally, I am also the wife of a disabled husband, and mother of two amazing young adults giving me a wealth of varied knowledge (even if my kids don't always agree)! I previously was the Editing Manager for a web content company in the UK and an editor for several other companies on a part-time basis.
