    My background: Passionate about languages, I have been very hands on with regards to localisation for the past six years with work including translation and copywriting for some major global brands on many ATL advertising campaigns. My agency background gives me the edge and a clear understanding on clients’ needs in terms of timings, quality and confidentiality. Services I provide: transcreation, copywriting, subtitling, editing and proofreading. Field of expertise: Marketing (press releases, brochures, websites, apps, social network content, apps, interactive media, etc.) List of brands I work for available on demand. What do clients say about my work? "Did an excellent, creative and highly-articulate V1 on a recent transcreation job. Very impressed by the calibre of her work." Jan, 2014 "Camille worked on a couple of leaflets for us recently (btw, with a very short turnaround time) and managed to further improve the quality of copy that was already to a very high standard. She made some minor changes that made the copy sound truly idiomatic. That final touch that makes all the difference and leaves no possibility of it being seen as a translation." Apr, 2014 "Excellent translator. Good communication and a pleasure to work with!" Jun, 2014

    Internationally oriented creative project manager

    Finland - Last active: 19 days ago

    Dynamic and international environment is the kind of atmosphere I feel most at home mainly because of wide international experience and the character of being able to keep many strings in my hands. Project management and risk management are present in everything I do. While I pay attention to details, I always keep the big picture clear. Learning something new every day and seizing the day are guidelines I try to live by. All in all, a project manager with a can-do attitude and ability to adapt to new situations is ready to join your team. So far I have gathered experience from marketing to operational risk management and from event coordination to corporate development (M&A activities). I am now looking for new opportunities in which I could utilize my knowhow of marketing, finance, project management and management in an international environment. In addition to my MBA in general management and finance and BBA in marketing, I have achieved the certifications of: - Project Management Associate by Int'l Project Management Association (IPMA) - General Securities Examination by Finnish Association of Securities Dealers (FASD)
