Bio

Being given the opportunity to become a
freelance writer is a great honor.

I am still in the beginning stages of
translation, but I am willing to give my best and work hard on any challenges
given.

I am used to high-pressure work
environments where deadlines are crucial.

I can translate 2000-4000 words per day.

I am skilled in using all programs
needed to complete my tasks.

I have full access to the following
programs:

Adobe Acrobat

Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Office Pro

Microsoft Word

Powerpoint

Smartcat

MateCat

 

I would really appreciate the
opportunity to be able to broaden my horizons and learn more about what the
world can offer.
