    Creative + speech writing, translation

    South Africa - Last active: 1 day 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.
