Translation work: I firmly believe that "translation" has to be ... moremuch more than getting a text from one language to the other any which old way without glaring errors. Text has to flow and fit the culture of the language as well as the target audience it is written and translated for. I am comfortable with a large variety of platforms, can translate software and use most common interfaces. I have translated a vast variety of texts, ranging from websites for musicians to those of horse breeders advertising breeding stock to medical texts, product descriptions, long lost love letters from World War 1, instructions on how to build a cat climbing tree and general correspondence. I am precise rather than fast but will go the extra mile to meet deadlines, creative, solution orientated and easy and fun to work with. Writing: I am an experienced writer of a variety of content, from a book (non-fiction, in English, published) to various articles on subjects ranging from Theater Reviews to advertising copy, blog content to relationship advice, sporthorse breeding to sales correspondence. Writing is a passion of mine and always has been. less

    Petra was a fantastic customer service rep and I enjoyed working with her. Her communication and correspondence with our customers were top-notch. We terminated the contract because we hired an entire new team for our customer service department. I HIGHLY recommend Petra for any customer service work you may need, she will not disappoint you.

    We had a problem with our Upwork account and Petra has been very patient until it got fixed. The translation projects themselves were impeccably done, not to mention completed in a timely manner, and given the chance we would love to work with her again.

    Petra went above and beyond the scope of this small project, providing helpful recommendations and excellent work. I originally expected a short translation project, but she realized the translation was part of a larger goal, and provided additional research and analysis that helped me achieve that goal. I strongly recommend Petra for future projects of any scope.
