The Quality You Need

Skilled writer, editor, and translator providing professional, high-quality solutions for your writing and translation needs! Services offered in English, French, and Spanish.

I'm not a student, a new graduate, or recently unemployed, looking for filler work until something "better" comes along. Working as an independent contractor IS my "better," and I love it.
Service Description
I am a native English-speaker who reads, speaks, and writes in English, French (with specialization in Canadian French), and Spanish. I'm a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association.

Translations are performed by me alone, not a computer program or a third party. I follow a rigorous four-step process to ensure that you receive the best possible translation of your material.

Translation experience includes CVs/resumes, business proposals and calls for tender, legal documents, company websites, and documents about engineering, first aid and hazardous materials. Writing experience includes online content and assessment for a college English composition course by McGraw Hill; an online high school film and theater course; detailed lesson plans for English courses; and material for an AP English exam review book. Editing experience includes academic writing, personality/psychological reports, young adult fiction manuscripts, self-help/motivational manuscripts, CVs, and sales copy.

Payment Terms
Payment is through Elance escrow ONLY. For larger projects, milestones are set and full payment must be in escrow prior to work commencing, unless otherwise specified. I am available for rush projects or milestones at a higher fee.

My prices are not the lowest on Elance, so if you are motivated by cost more than quality, I may not be the best provider for you. I am willing to work with clients to accommodate their budgets as much as possible: this may include reducing the size or scope of the project, or stretching milestones (and thus the total time for the project) to allow clients to pay over a longer period of time.
