    Croatian Translation/Data Entry

    Since I joined Upwork, I've worked on various types of projects. These include transcription, writing SEO-rich titles for student essays, LinkedIn and general web research, etc. Having experienced all these various jobs, I feel capable of picking up quickly any new job that may come my way. Given that I'm a professor of English and French, as well as a native Croatian speaker, I'm mostly oriented to seeking opportunities in the field of translation and proofreading.

    Translation, Transcription, Text

    Germany - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 7

    I am a 34 year old freelance writer and translator from Germany and am looking for translation, editing/proofreading and transcription jobs from all over the globe. I am well-travelled and well-educated, including a BA in American Studies, Journalism and Comparative Literature and a Masters in Literary Writing. Over the past ten years, I have worked and collected valuable experiences in a variety of fields and businesses which now enables me to tailor my work to each of my client's individual needs and requirements. The cliché of German virtues is just that, but there is a bit of truth in every cliché. Personally, giving those extra 10 percent on top of what is expected from me is just as much a part of my work as are efficiency, accuracy, punctuality, creativity and keeping a clear head when things aren't going the way they are supposed to - all aspects of being a professional that should go without saying. I am also a published and award-winning writer.

    Expert Translator English -- Dutch

    Netherlands - Portfolio: 1

    If you want your text translated cheaply, quickly and above all, correctly, I'm the man for the job. I've been raised bilingually, speaking both Dutch and English. Having graduated from UC Roosevelt as a Biology-major, with minors in English and Journalism, I now work full-time as a translator and copywriter. As a translator, I've worked for museums, international yacht brokers and numerous other companies. During my work, I've translated academic, legal and popular texts, including employment contracts, general Terms & Conditions, but also marketing texts, a personal specialty. When translating, I work quickly and accurately, but perhaps even more importantly, I have what they call 'a feel for words'. I'll make sure that your translation isn't just 100% correct, I'll make sure it's also pleasant to read. All in all, if you're looking for a translator that can ensure a quick, correct and easy-to-read translation, you've come to the right place.
