    Science and a love of writing!

    United States - Portfolio: 7

I have a PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences as well as an MS in Toxicology, which grew from an agricultural background in the animal sciences. I have studied many areas of the biomedical and environmental health sciences, including pulmonary, cardiovascular and heavy metal toxicology. My writing experience has evolved from those areas, but has also grown to include writing for educational science projects. I have a significant amount of experience in grant and manuscript preparations as well as science curriculum development at the middle and high school levels. I love writing about science topics in a way that makes it come alive for audiences of all skill levels and ages.

    Mohamad Awada

    Customized Translation and Editing Services

    Venezuela - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 2

    "I highly recommend Mohamad. He performed his task [...] with more care and efficiency than any other worker I have ever hired. He was proactive and understood instructions immediately [...]. He always submitted his work by the set deadline. When sent last-minute extra work towards the end of the project, he found imaginative ways to complete the additional workload quickly. Mohamad is fast, reliable, and remarkably thoughtful. [...] I am looking forward to continue collaborating with him in the future.” You're here because you (or your clients) are looking for translations that are "ready-to-publish". You hate working with mediocre translators that will end up costing you extra time and money, since their work will end up needing rounds of revisions. The testimonial I shared proves that you won't need to worry about the quality of my work, making me a valuable asset in your team.
