    Creative + speech writing, translation

    South Africa - 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.

    Multifaceted Virtual Assistant. Business support branch

    Sweden - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 4

    My previous line of work led to the start of a VA business. My goal is to work with what I like and keep up the trend of various tasks. The rate described is my lowest rate, which I usually apply because I sometimes like to do assignments to keep my skills at a recent level, and then that rate apply. On the other hand could other duties require a higher rate. My VA role is one of the multi-skilled, or multifaceted as I use for marketing since I've learned a lot of different skills during the positions I held. I'm very service minded, as I started out as a cashier and office girl and had the privilege to work with people with genuine feeling for service. I find it likable and I also think it makes sense to keep a service minded attitude towards customers. If you see someone without a smile - give them one of your kind of recaps what service is. Additionally to the service offered in the line of work, that is. Later on I've for several years each, held positions as sales secretary, school secretary, administrative consultant, application specialist and web/system developer. Besides having extensive work experience, the studying of sociology, psychology and computer science at an academic level constitutes useful knowledge. Still today I feel at home in almost any constellation of work, I like to do repetitive tasks from time to time, and challenging tasks from time to time. Work satisfaction is important to me, and it means delivering good results, to be of benefit to the receiver. For myself the help and learn part goes a long way. One other thing to mention is that I learned to type at an early age. That skill has been both useful and fun during the years. Besides skills in service and typing, I'm interested in languages, both human and computer. Regarding human language, I write with a fine imagination, do my research and have a splendid vocabulary. Regarding computers, I like to make life easier for end users, and I also focus on usability. Regarding both languages, I also like to enhance the experience for the reader/user. Oh, I nearly forgot (if you're still reading this short essay that is), I also do some graphic designs from time to time. Web design, Logo designs, Business Cards, Newsletter, formatting in Word, layouts in PowerPoint and so on! We need beautiful things! Cheers!

    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!

    Language is the vessel of the mind.

    United States - Tests: 9

    Accurate, concise, thoughtful composition is not only ideal in the realm of written communication; it is essential to understanding and clarity. As a writer, I consider the needs of the client as well as his or her preferences. I effectively incorporate these aspects into the text, and successfully evoke the desired response from the reader. I accomplish this by defining the target audience, and studying them. Why? I am keenly aware that in order to affect the readers, I must first understand them and their motivation to read. Will this be a compulsory read or a leisure read? Do they seek comprehension of a complex concept or indulgence in fiction? Is a clear and concise presentation of facts or elaborate description best? A noteworthy text concurrently and harmoniously satisfies both client and audience, and the needs and desires of one are not sacrificed for the other. As a writer, I am highly attuned to this, and will find a harmonious balance for the text.
