What I can promise is a high level of writing in any work I do, including professional reports or customer/client communication, timely proofreading of documents and reports, and reliable communication to manage timelines and customer expectations.

I can write, edit or translate based on the customers' needs and/or also offer marketing and language recommendations along the way, leaning on my professional experience in marketing research, strategic planning and translating.

I am accustomed to working under deadlines and realize that deadlines guide work and communication. I value my time as much as yours and will work to meet your needs as much as I am able.
