    Writer and Translator with Voice

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 1

    In the 15 years since my parents taught me how to type, I've been slamming out material that's interesting to read, has voice, and catches people's attention (notice the verb "slamming." How could that not catch your attention?) I'm looking for opportunities to write! I can get you: -attention-getting business proposals. -grammatically correct, well-worded technical writing. -extremely prompt editing and feedback on writing samples. My material has been published across the world (chiefly in my girlfriend's e-mail inbox and on my professors' desks)! If it needs to be in Russian, that's all the better! I lived in the Ukraine for two years as a Christian Volunteer, and spent the whole time speaking and writing in their native tongue. If you need: --Reports/web-sites/books/writing samples that need translations from Russian to English, or vice versa -Real-time translation for conferences, speeches, conversations, etc. -Business proposals to run by Vladimir Putin, then I'm your man!

    Writer, Italian translator and medical student

    Italy - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 2

    The "hangman" game teaches us that a faulty word might kill a man. Hopefully nobody has to die, and I am here to help. I have always defined myself as "gifted" in writing, and so did all of my peers and superiors. Since the "usus scribendi" is not something everybody has the luck to own, I decided to start a part-time freelance career in this field to help myself in the sustainment of my medical education costs. I love writing and, most of all, I love doing it correctly and creatively. I am fluent in English and Italian mother tongue, I have also studied ancient Latin and Greek. I have expertise in understanding and explaining medical-related information.
