Professional practices Melandra Smith endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I am a cloud-based freelance proofreader and copywriter in UK English, with a technical translations agency background and 7 years’ experience in project management, translation, localisation, review and proofreading. I am also a CIM-trained marketer and will soon be adding a diploma in digital marketing to my marketing qualifications (early in 2015). In addition to my other skills, I am a traditional artist and illustrator, working in all kinds of media, from pen and ink to oils. And last but not least, I have considerable experience as a project manager working with all types of clients – from worldwide family history societies to village action groups.

My end clients include Google, oDesk, Apple, Duracell, Kia Cars, Vans, oDesk Enterprises, Lionbridge, Toyota, Motorola, Eurostar, Heckler & Koch, Chemring Defence, BSL, Hilton Hotels, Orchard Toys, DB Schenker Rail, Ischebeck Titan and IHS Janes.

I am a drummer in an embryo rock band and also play the violin, charango and classical guitar. I love cooking, gardening, classic cars, learning new skills and making stuff (mainly crochet). I can speak Japanese but not well enough to become a translator...
