    France - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 6

    I'm Shabda and I'm currently studying Psychology in Paris. I have much experience as a translator as I used to translate english to french articles for my neighbour who is a university lecturer in Paris. I also worked for a french company where my main task was proofreading, transcription and blog writing. I worked for them for more than a year and thus I have good skills in this field. I am a serious person and always give the best to satisfy my employee. As I am a student, I intend to work for 20 hours or more for a start. My main goal is to satisfy my client with a good work quality and meet the deadline.

    Portugal - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 3

    Born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal, I'm currently studying Communication Sciences (I found my true love!) in Porto. I also have some background in Multimedia, given by a 3-years professional course. I'm interested in many types of jobs and I'll only apply to the ones that I feel I can do. My goal is to finish my tasks with the maximum quality within the minimum time possible I worked before in door-to-door telecommunication companies and at an hostel reception, a job that I loved because I could talk with many foreigners and see the cultural differences between almost every country in the world. Currently I work as a part-time writer for a Portuguese online music magazine. I love everything that involves writing and the creative process to write the best text/article possible. This is the reason I said I found my true love in Communication Sciences - because, honestly, this is the one thing that I feel I love to do and that I see myself doing forever. Trust me to help you and I'll make everything I can to make the best work possible.

    United States - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 9

    My professional background consists of management, finance, office administration, and call center experience. The knowledge that I've gained through my employment, past and present, has developed great customer service and problem solving skills. I also have excellent organizational skills and a keen eye for detail. In 2003, I graduated Phi Theta Kappa with my Associate of Arts degree in General Studies. I continued my education at the University of West Florida, focusing on my Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a specialization in Creative Writing. I have one course to complete in order to obtain my BA. My major in English has taught me to communicate effectively in written and oral form.

    Experienced writing, editing, and software development professional

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 2

    I'm interested in clear-cut projects that provide immediate benefit to clients. I'm ready to step in, do some coding, editing, writing, patching -- whatever is required -- and then step out. I'm an XML specialist and data wrangler from way back, and have extensive background in scripting -- mainly XSL, Perl, VBA, and various shells, and I speak HTML and CSS/SASS as well. Some of these scripts eventually grew into fairly major utilities in their own right. I've been involved in the publishing field one way or another throughout my career; the early years were spent as a technical writer and trainer, so my skill set is a mix of technical and literary.

    Multi-Media Journalist, Writer, and Artist

    United States - Last active: 16 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 11

    I'm a professional multi-media journalist who can write, edit, research, produce, and design high-quality content on almost any topic and for any medium. From creating blog and social media posts to complete marketing communications plans, I have worked with clients including university programs, acupuncturists, chefs, commercial painters, e-commerce sites, news sites and forums, and more. I do not compromise my high ethical standards. Sorry, but I do not accept jobs that involve "ghostwriting" without credit, "spinning" and stealing others' copyrighted work, or other shady practices. What you get with me is a passionate, hard-working, detail-oriented, mass communications expert. What you do not get is someone who will rush the job or be a mindless "yes man" -- if I accept a job then I am committing to give you my best work effort, and that includes sometimes offering suggestions or advice -- getting you the final product you NEED, not just the one you think you want. I generally do not do Skype interviews or meetings for any projects paying less than $1,000. I am happy to answer any questions through ODesk or email, and I am happy to do a trial period for any ongoing positions. Sorry, but the reason I choose to do online freelancing is to make my own schedule and work in my pajamas; if you can't deal with that then best of luck finding someone who is a better fit for you.
