    Venezuela - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 19 - Portfolio: 3

    Bilingual (English and Spanish) with solid experience in various support roles with International Companies, transcribing, translating and proofreading. As a Translator, I have experience assisting clients with writing, editing, proofreading, and formatting. I am an efficient and thorough translator because I enjoy the process and have excellent technical language skills (technical documentation, manuals, and software for engineering, medical and technology companies). If the examples of my work on my portfolio, past works on oDesk and client reviews/feedback are not enough for you to assess my professional abilities, I can provide a small sample from the project you are hiring for in order to show you what I am capable of delivering. My high feedback score is a great indication of how seriously I take my commitment to each and every project. I have years of experience and I always take great pride in producing quality translations. I am reliable and dependable, I never abandon projects and I meet all of my deadlines. I also prefer to complete my work sooner rather than later, and I usually do so before the deadline if at all possible. I am looking to expand my experience to other areas of translating, and I would love to be given a chance to work with you!

    Serbia - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 14

    Strong white hat SEO skills, I continue to grow and follow closely, on daily basis, all changes introduced by Google, incl. latest Penguine modifications. I am very careful with job selection, I don't apply or take what I can not deliver for sure. No generic emails/applications. Highly experienced in SMM, particularity Facebook marketing. I would be a perfect choice for jobs that need a prompt reaction regardless of the amount of job or time of the day. I love to work with start-up projects, ideally customer-oriented (customer perception related) jobs. SEO is my personal favorite, but I don't believe in fix-and-go solutions - it has to be a constant process. Online Marketing specialist, established blogger, ex TV & Radio journalist and as an ex PR executive with an extraordinary technical skills and advanced web development techniques and intensive experience with several major international organizations, mostly within communications, on-line marketing and customer-support departments, I can cover variety of jobs. I joined oDesk only in December 2014, but I have done/participated in more than 30 on-line marketing related projects through other similar platforms over the last 2 years. Here - so far, so good: 5 stars, happy clients, above expectations execution. I transcribe and do translations, only when I am bored and available due to lack of other jobs that I enjoy more, but if I apply for it, you can expect it done in highly professional manner. Voice-over in Serbian is my additional formidable skill - over 20 years of TV/Radio experience. Due to family issues, I need to start working from home only. Therefore, I seek online jobs, with entry level/low rates included, in order to get some positive feedback to continue climbing around here, but I am not really interested in data-entry jobs without added value.
