    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.

    Writer and Translator with Voice

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

    Quality copy is the driving force behind a strong business or brand presence. Quick-and-dirty SEO articles will generate a brief spurt in web traffic, but won't sustain the ever changing tides of Google's algorithm. Substandard content will also drive readers away as quickly as they come. No one wants to visit a website or read copy with error-filled and uninteresting content that doesn't inform. Avoid the unsatisfactory consequences that lousy content brings by hiring me to write for websites, blogs, or any other mode of publication. I am a researcher, copywriter, and editor who can write on any topic. The attention to detail and quality of my writing make me the best option for well-written content that drives traffic. Grammatical mistakes weaken articles. I provide editorial services to ensure your copy will make the strongest impact possible without losing your voice in the process. Making an impact on potential leads is paramount to strengthening any business or brand. I do this by writing interesting and informative articles that keep the reader's attention from the beginning of the article to the call to action at the bottom. I also edit copy to help strengthen the syntax and grammar that keep readers engaged. A little bit more about me: I've taught Grammar, Composition, Literature, and Bible in third and fourth grade classes at a private school in Tyler, TX. I've also taught adults how to write and speak well along with helping lead college-aged students in a missions training program. I am currently in my last semester of my Biblical Studies degree. Let me know if you'd like to partner on your project.
