    Article, Creative and Technical Writer, Dentist

    Philippines - Last active: 18 days ago - Tests: 2

    I have been writing for twelve years already - four years as part of the school publication as a science page writer, community development page writer and eventually, as a news editor, and eight years as part of my requirements in various subjects throughout college. Recently, I worked as a research assistant to a dentist, who is taking his Master in Health Professions Education degree, in which I wrote his graduate thesis proposal about the use of algorithms in teaching oral surgery. As a news editor, I have also written editorial articles, proof-read and edited a number of articles and I have been given an opportunity to compete to represent our school publication after winning a news article writing contest held during one of our training. I have also competed in a number of essay writing contests, some of which I have won either first or second place. The eight years in college have been filled with writing research and reaction papers, book and movie reviews, dental journal critiques, seminar papers and reports. The subjects include but not limited to stem cells, philosophy, periodontology, orthodontics, oral health education and other dental subjects. I am currently a graduating student enrolled in Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in University of the Philippines-Manila, the top-performing university in our country and one of the institutions in the Philippines who made it to the list of top-performing schools in the world for several times already. I have also proof-read a thesis proposal written by a group of Civil Engineering students back in 2013. Writing in college and working as a research assistant have also developed my skills in web research, creating presentations and transcription. I am also a wide and a fast reader and I am quick in comprehension, therefore new topics or subjects will not be a problem to me.

    Fanatically perfectionist proofreader/copy-editor

    South Africa - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 2

    My primary talent is for spotting errors in the written word. Even when I'm not trying - just reading for pleasure - I will pick up the tiniest of mistakes. If required, I can do the bare minimum - simply ensure that there are no errors in the copy - but I am proud of my ability to take another person's writing and make it more readable, easier to understand. I make sure that there is consistency in style (eg, American vs British English, the use of capitalisation, etc), even in very long documents. A mistake in publicity material, whether printed or online, sends out a very poor message about that organisation. Let me make sure your documents are perfect!

    English-Spanish/Spanish-English Translator, Editor, and Writer

    United States - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 12

    I am originally from the U.S. but I was raised in the Republic of Panama. I gained not only complete fluency in both languages because of this, but cultural awareness as well. I am great at being able to translate from either English to Spanish or Spanish to English. The reason for this is that I don't just translate the literal word to word, but the actual cultural meaning and the social significance behind what is truly being said. I also have added experience in medical transcription, which allows me to translate difficult medical terminology when needed. It also allows me to correct misspelled medications, dosages, and other details which are crucial for successful documentation of patient care. As far as my personal skills, I am great at working alone as well as in a team setting. I am extremely focused, self-motivated, and I am always looking for ways to go above and beyond the task that has been assigned to me. I know how to lead as well as take direction. I am very flexible, detail-oriented, and bring a very positive attitude with me in everything that I do. I always treat everyone with courtesy and respect. Finally, I have the understanding that, no matter what the job is, it's a team effort to reach success. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I look forward to working with you and the honor of helping you reach your goals.

    Freelance Writer / Proofreader

    Canada - Last active: 17 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 2

    I'm currently studying Broadcast Journalism, and I have a degree in Political Science. While studying Political Science, I volunteered with the campus radio station, and with the student newspaper. In my spare time, I maintained a music blog, which focused on independent artists in the Pacific Northwest. My academic background means that I am aware and able to discuss and write about current regional, national, and global issues confidently, and in a way that is easy to read. My passion for music and arts means that I am able to discuss pop culture and nightlife as comfortably as I can write about politics. In addition to blogging and writing experience, I also tutored ESL students while at university, which often involved proofreading and helping students complete written assignments. Furthermore, I recently completed a CELTA course, which has only helped to further my understanding of grammar and proper sentence structure.
