    Brazil - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 2

    Hi, I’m Andrew Short and I’m on a mission to be one of the best freelancers for your project at ODesk. I am journalist with commissions for magazine such as Financial News, Postal Technology International and Funds Latin America. I also consult for one of the largest banks in Brazil as an investment writer and translate documents from Portuguese to English. Before this, I worked as an editor and journalist in London for a financial trade magazine. This has given me a unique view into the world of finance and asset management as I’ve interviewed a number of top executives and politicians. Prior to this, I worked as a subeditor and production assistant. I am organized, responsible and always meet my deadlines.

    Experienced writing, editing, and software development professional

    United States - Last active: 15 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.

    United Kingdom - Last active: 1 month ago

    I have 17 years of experience in editorial and production roles and am a member of the SfEP. As a freelance publishing project manager, I specialise in educational, business and academic proofreading and copy-editing and my clients include Collins Education, Folens (Ireland) and Compuscript (Ireland). My current project is checking digital files against published books for Leckie and Leckie’s elearning site (Collins Connect). My role in projects can also involve research, fact checking, plagiarism checks, working with authors and suppliers, and rewriting. Selected freelance titles include: • Lothian and Borders Police Edinburgh and the Lothians Inter-Agency Child Protection Procedures (2012) • Matrix Knowledge Outline Business Case (OBC): Commissioning for Outcomes for Integrated Care in Leicester City (2014) • Momentum UK The Brain Injury Handbook (2013) • Collins Education Busy Ant Maths (2014) • Leckie and Leckie National 5 Health and Food Technology Success Guide (2013); Higher Physics Course Notes (2014) • De Gruyter GmhH Engineering Catalysis (2013); Borrowed Morphology (2014); Biological Chemistry (journal, ongoing) • Emerald Journal of Science and Technology Policy Management (2014) I was with Wiley-Blackwell (formerly Blackwell Publishing) for nine years (2000–2009) and during that time I progressed from Production Editor to Assistant Production Manager. I managed four production staff and a package of three medical journals. Both these roles required a great deal of relationship management as we published in partnership with learned societies. I was responsible for: taking the journals from manuscript acceptance through to publication; allocating work to freelance staff; liaison with colleagues, editorial boards, authors and suppliers. It was an enormous juggling act at times, and I had to be very organised and practised at planning, prioritising and quality control. During that time I managed, copy-edited and proofread many titles, including high-profile journals such as the British Journal of Dermatology, Acta Paediatrica, the British Journal of Learning Disabilities, Practical Neurology, and Brain Pathology. I published approximately 400 pages per month across three journals, often to very tight deadlines. From 1997 to 2000, I worked in educational publishing for a company called Folens. My main achievement during that role was to manage the editorial side of a large primary maths programme (Folens Maths Programme). To gain market share it was very important to publish quickly, but this was complicated by the changes made to the National Numeracy Strategy after the draft stage. Through very hard work we were first to market and the programme was very successful. My IT skills include: • Microsoft Office • Adobe InDesign • In-house journal tracking system (Wiley-Blackwell) • ScholarOne Manuscripts (Manuscript Central) • Image software • PDF mark-up tools • WordPress and ClikPic content management
