    I am a native English speaker who loves the written word, obsesses over details of spelling, grammar, and punctuation, as well as how the finished piece sounds when read aloud. I also excel in proof-reading and editing. Having lived, studied, and worked in the US and England (as well as many other places around the world), I have also mastered both British and American English spelling and punctuation. While my experience lies in sales, sales training, marketing, and management, it is creative writing that I am most passionate about. I am also stickler for deadlines, and have excellent time management skills.

    Author and a native speaker of Danish

    Denmark - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4

    My name is Marco! I am a young and very straightforward employee, who is always ready to make a hundred percent out of the material I am given. Simply a young and successful man that you can count on! I hope you wonder why you should choose me instead of all the others? Well, first of all I can say that I have about 5 years of experience in translating English-Danish and Danish-English. I am a native speaker of Danish. Currently, I am studying English and have done this for several years now. Another very important thing to know about how I work is that I would rather use another 30 minutes to check for mistakes, than hand over a product that is of a lower standard than it could be. As a translator, I do not just translate. I try my best to find the perfect word to get the same message out there when the project is translated. As a translator, I aim to provide the best possible experience for those who are going to read it later. Because of my mixed family roots, I am a quick learner of new languages and I have currently been studying French for the last 26 months.

    Writer (Creative & Technical), Editor and Proofreader

    United States - Last active: 24 days ago - Portfolio: 1

    I would like to use my writing skills, both creative and technical, to their highest advantage. I have a great deal of experience in legal research and writing, which allows me to take many different types of technical and scientific data and make them understandable to the average person. This was a necessity for me as I also tried numerous cases before juries in both Florida and Georgia. It will also help me take such data and make it understandable to your readers. Presently, I primarily write and edit eBooks. I have written them on subjects ranging from legal to financial. I have also been working on a very ambitious training manual with foreign partners for the last year. I contribute content as well as do all of the English language editing. In addition, I have been hired to write everything from web content to short stories over the past few years. I am also a very creative writer. For myself, I write novels, short stories, and poetry. For others, I have written short stories, case studies, and a children's book. My English, language and grammar skills are exemplary and my research is always thorough. Finally, I'm a capable editor of both style and content.
