    Italian native speaker, based not too far from Venice, where I help tourists getting deeper lost in the street labirinth :-) I am Maths and Riddles enthusiast: I began solving Sudokus in preparation for the competition, and participated in the Italian championship that year. That changed my life: now I own my puzzle company and I enjoy sharing my games to other puzzles fans. I am best known for the introduction of Sudoku & Dragons. I have developed interest in many "nerdy" things, like Rubik's Cube: my personal best is 39''. You can learn it in one afternoon!

    Unique. Engaging. Vivid.

    United States - Last active: 8 days ago - Portfolio: 7

    An esteemed author once wrote, "Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass." That is a guiding principle for me. Whether I am writing or editing, I seek to paint words with vivid brushstrokes, tapping into ideas through images; feelings through sensations; facts through well-mined research. Once I start a project, my focus goes to striking interesting notes of expression within a given equation. Website: www.limilines.com

    South Africa - Last active: 5 days ago - Tests: 1

    Hi, I have been writing speeches, articles and short stories; editing, researching and re-writing articles, speeches and creative writing for almost 20 years. I have been translating from Afrikaans to English and vice versa for almost as long as I can remember and transcribing a lot of confidential work. I have an excelent grasp of the English (american and british) and Afrikaans languages. You can rely on me to always strive for excelence and to finish my work in the least possible time but the highest possible quality. I find myself with a little more time on my hands lately and I'm looking for a new challenge, translating online keeps the creative juices flowing and the work stays interesting because you never know what will be next. Thank you for keeping my application in mind.
