    Professional Blogger, Copywriter and Master Wordsmith

    United Kingdom - Last active: 14 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 4

    I’m an adaptable and well-seasoned British writer, creator of compelling online content. My diligent research skills allow me to understand and connect with readers, converting them into either obsessed followers or happy buyers. HIGHLY PROFESSIONAL SERVICES Completing tasks becomes a breeze when you’re dealing with another hard working professional. Your work will always be delivered promptly within our agreed deadline. In fact, 9 out of 10 times it will even arrive in your mailbox earlier than expected. Having someone you can depend on to consistently hit above the mark will allow your business to continue operating like clockwork. OUTSTANDING QUALITY CONTROL It can sometimes become a worry whether a new writer can truly deliver all the wonderful work they have promised you. There is nothing worse than receiving poor quality content or writing that doesn’t fare well through Copyscape. From working on both sides of the fence I have come to understand these annoyances all too well. Content from me will always be original and freshly squeezed just for you. All work passes through rigorous grammar and spelling checks before it can be cleared for dispatch. EASY COMMUNICATION Clear two-way communication is essential for keeping stress levels to a minimum. The possibility of being left high and dry as a deadline draws closer can be a rather unsettling feeling. However, this can be nullified by working with someone constantly connected and responsive. For those larger projects brief progress reports can offer reassurance that everything is progressing smoothly. SATISFACTION GUARANTEED If my work does not initially land on target I will endeavour to tweak it until your completely happy, free of charge. Alternatively a 100% money back guarantee is available you if you so wish. I maintain a friendly, easy to work attitude that I hope will cultivate your peace of mind. YOUR NEXT STEPS Getting in contact with me is a snap, I will even vow to get a message back to you within 24 hours. Should you prefer a face-to-face chat first then we can certainly schedule a Skype call. Ultimately you should hire me as an expert writer for your next online business venture.

    Fluent English. Fluent Arabic. Basic Korean (accomplished a Korean beginner course). Ranked third place in a national English writing contest. Got A in all of my English courses in college. I'm always reading. Sample of My work: English to Arabic The Article: It can ruin the appearance of your hands, could be unhygienic and can hurt if you take it too far. So why do people do it? Biter Tom Stafford investigates. What do ex-British prime minster Gordon Brown, Jackie Onassis, Britney Spears and I all have in common? We all are (or were) nail biters. It's not a habit I'm proud of. It's pretty disgusting for other people to watch, ruins the appearance of my hands, is probably unhygienic and sometimes hurts if I take it too far. I've tried to quit many times, but have never managed to keep it up. The translation: عادة من الممكن أن تتسبب في تشويه مظهر يديك، من الممكن أن تكون غير صحية و قد تسبب ضرراً إذا ما لازمتك لفترة طويلة. إذا لماذا لا يزال الناس يمارسون هذه العادة؟ تحقيق بقلم بيتر توم ستافورد. ما الذي يجمع بيني و بين كلٍ من رئيس وزراء بريطانيا السابق جوردن براون، جاكي أوناسيس، بريتني سبيرز؟ جميعنا لازلنا أو كنا نقضم أظافرنا. إنها ليست من العادات التي أفخر بممارستها؛ فهي تسبب التقزز لمن يشاهد، تشوه مظهر يدي، عالأرجح غير صحية و تسبب الضرر على المدى البعيد. حاولت الإقلاع عنها أكثر من مره، و لكن لم أفلح في أي من تلكم المرات. Arabic to English The Article: دائماً ما يحتاج أصحاب الموقع إلى أداة لمعرفة أكثر كلمات البحث استخداماً من أجل تحسين عرض مواقعهم ضمن نتائج البحث وخصوصاً في محرك بحث جوجل، لأن ظهور الموقع في نتائج البحث الأولية يُعزز من عدد الزيارات وانتشار المحتوى بشكل أكبر. ويُمكن للمستخدمين الآن تجربة موقع الذي يوفر أداة لمعرفة أكثر كلمات البحث استخداماً أو مُشتقاتها؛ فالمستخدم يقوم بإدخال كلمة بحث لتظهر له عمليات البحث المتعلقة بنفس الكلمة أو ما يشبهها. بعد الدخول إلى الموقع يكتب المستخدم كلمة البحث ويحدد البلد الذي يرغب بالبحث فيه، لأن جوجل يوفر نسخة ونتائج بحث تختلف من دولة لأخرى، وأخيراً يُحدد لغة البحث لتظهر له الكلمات المتعلقة بالكلمة التي قام بإدخالها. The translation: Websites owners always need a tool to know the most searched words on their sites in order to improve their services and their chances of appearing as one of the first results of searching engines, especially Google. This comes as a result of the fact that the number of visits along with the popularity of the site increases when it is shown as one of the first results. Now it is possible for internet users to try which provides a tool to identify the most searched words or its derivatives. The user enters the searched word to get the related searching operations associated with the entered word or what is similar to it. After visiting the site, the user should define the searched word, the country of interest and the language; as Google provides different results for each country.
