    Script Reader

    United States - Tests: 7

    As a young, aspiring American writer and editor, I believe the best compensation I receive from any job is the experience of working with your literary material. I am a current senior at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, focusing in screenwriting with a double major in history. Because I am a student, I have the ability to charge lower rates and to work on a tight deadline. Storytelling is what makes me excited, and I believe good stories deserve to be told in a way that flows and is clear and concise. The types of editing I perform include manuscript (copyediting or line editing), mechanical, substantive, and if desired, developmental. I primarily specialize in The Chicago Manual of Style, though I can apply whatever style guide your project requires. My workflow generally consists of two read-throughs--one very slow in which I do the majority of my editing, and a second sweep in which I check the flow and revise my edits. Every project I work on is incomplete until you are satisfied. Thank you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you!

    Carolyn W.

    UK translator with excellent mother-tongue English

    United Kingdom

    I am a freelance translator and copy-editor, with outstanding English language skills. I am particularly good at producing clear and concise summaries of long, complicated documents. I have a degree in French and Italian with Spanish. Specialist areas include classical music, education, culture and theology. I worked for over twenty years for a charity which published works on education. I did a lot of abstracting, copy-editing and proofreading, mainly in English. My translation skills were sometimes used for European research and projects. Between 1980 and 1990 I also did voluntary translations to and from Spanish for a local branch of a human-rights organisation. My experience of translating has therefore always been for people I know, and this means that my aim is always to produce something which the reader will understand, rather than sticking to a mechanical literal translation. Since July 2010 I have been a full-time freelance translator and copy-editor.

    experienced writer branching out into new things

    United Kingdom - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 5

    My first degree is in English and Education studies from the University of Chester, but I also hold qualifications in psychology, teaching, mathematics, history and out door activities. I am currently a privet tutor working only 3-5 hours daily so I have time on my hands and can't stand being idol. I've had work published in several peer reviewed journals and have been writing for as long as I can remember - I even got a Blue Peter badge for a book review at the age of 8. I have done a lot of jobs in my time, making my experience very varied. From Sunday School teaching to working in a PRU (referral school for children with behavioral problems) and dog walking to dietitian. I spent a long time as a story teller and still get the odd job at schools and events weaving tales and making magic. You name it, I've probably done it. I even make wooden instruments with my father.

    Blogger, ebook writer, self development expert

    United States - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 2

    I have 2 diverse self-development blogging sites and have been writing since I was in high school for my school magazine. I am great at online research and have produced content for my own time mangement workshops. I graduated with a law degree from the UK but subsequently fell in love with the self-development world. My writing style is simple and down to earth but due to my legal training, I can also produce highly technical writing when required. My intention is to produce additional supporting income for my family while serving others through my writing. I also regularly do transcriptions and am comfortable with English spoken in different accents due to my past experience living in Asia, Europe and of course, America.
