    Romania - Tests: 3

    Even though I have a Bachelor's degree in Management and I have worked in the field of architecture and construction for 5 years as a personal assistant, translator and other secretarial duties, I have also worked in the art field due to my great passion for everything that has to do with art. Being a manager at Logos Theatre gave me insights about the workings of a theatre and how plays come to life. I also have experience as a translator, doing mostly books, independent projects and articles. Also, I have been teaching English and French for the last 15 years - I started when I was 15 years old and I have worked as an afterschool teacher, a Training Centre teacher and I have also given private lessons. I have written articles for two magazines along the years and in February 2013 I have published a book and I enjoy writing articles on my blog very much ( I love learning new languages and aside from the ones I already know - English, French, Italian, Spanish - I am currently learning Japanese and German. I like to organize and coordinate projects, which I have been doing for the last 8 years for the Caving Association I'm a member of. My top priorities are quality work and client satisfaction. Since April 2014 I have worked as a Marketing Consultant for DanaArt Gallery in Bucharest, Romania.

    Argentina - Tests: 11 - Portfolio: 8

    I am a professional Translator and Editor/Proofreader from Cordoba, Argentina with several years of experience. I am bilingual in Spanish, Polish and English and I can perform accurate translations between any of these languages.I have good computer skills. I have a degree in Clinical Laboratory Technician and a Bachelor degree in Biology. I have good skills in mathematics I love writing and good written texts. A true passion that I apply to my work. Whether translating, editing or proofreading a text I feel the need to make that text as good as possible. I believe translating is not just a mechanical process. There is a beauty in it. In finding that perfect way in which everything falls into place and you manage to express what the original text meant without limiting or crippling that meaning while still conserving the shape, the style and the tone of that original message. Do not underestimate the importance of this. Whether the task at hand is a website or a book, the quality of the text is everything. In any case you are trying to reach an audience, and for that you will need the best translation possible. Otherwise you will risk losing that audience in the market. Among my areas of expertise: • Engineering • Architecture • IT • Science • Medicine • Economics • Marketing • Legal texts • Websites • Letters • Articles • Technical documentation • Books • Movie scripts I am looking forward to working with you.

    Hi! I've been a Virtual Assistant and Freelancer since 2010. From then, I knew that my will never be the same again.

From that day, I've been helping entrepreneurs all over the world from different nations, languages, religions and colors (and hair styles) in fulfilling their dreams to contribute something in the history of mankind. Their goal may not be as big as changing the world, but I'm proud to be a part of their dream to make an impact in some people's lives. I'm expert in: Blogging Wordpress (management/design) SEO (on page/off page) Social Media (management/marketing) Ebook formatting (Kindle/Epub) and KDP account management Affiliate Marketing I can also do: Writing Customer Service (Chat and Email support) Online Research Data Entry Photo Editing Average HTML/CSS Basic Video Editing Translation: English/Filipino and other administrative support.

    Hussein Ghouleh

    Islamic & Creative Content Writer, translator & Arabic Tutor

    Thailand - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 4

    As far as I could remember, my life was always revolved around travel and tourism, I never saw myself in any other industry and I specifically loved working in departments that were focused around customer services and operations, not only because of the huge exposure to many clients that had different backgrounds, social statuses, cultures and languages, but because I had to deal with clients that were happy (relatively speaking!), because whither they were traveling for business, leisure or family trips, there was a unique excitement for travel arrangements that was always present, both for me and the traveler, and to be part of that excitement was a special treat in my daily working life. But after the passing of many years, career progress had to take place and responsibilities began to mount up to a managerial level, which I discovered to be not my favorite part of progress, because instead of working with clients and travelers, I began working with employees and colleagues, and that was where I lost my advantage, I no longer work to assure happiness, even though I tried to do so, and I had to learn it the hard way! management was never about making my employees happy! And so, I retired and decided to begin my own travels, and because I needed to finance myself one way or another, I had to rely on other skills, especially since I became the traveler and had no one to serve but my own self. And thus, I started picking up online jobs related to translation and content writing. Nowadays, I am engaged with education, farming and food production, and am looking forward to enrich my life with different kinds of knowledge as I engage further with what I have, but one thing is for sure... The more knowledge I gain, the more I realize how ignorant I can be in many things, that is why I believe one should never stop educating himself, this is where I began to be open to learning new things.
