Service Description

I have several years experience in writing for the Internet, driving long term article marketing campaigns for numerous web sites.

I write all sorts of web content from Home pages to product descriptions, introductions and detailed articles. My articles and blogs on food, children and travel are lively and informative and in excellent English.

My editing and proofreading skills are meticulous and all my work for the Internet is informed by my knowledge of SEO usage. I collaborate with my web developer husband on detailed SEO work and content creation.

I worked for many years in Italy gaining deep knowledge of its culture, food and wine and am fluent in Italian. I specialize in translating from Italian into English that flows well and reads naturally and enjoy working with Italian clients to adapt their websites for English-speaking markets.

A mother of three school age children, I have a wide appreciation of family related issues, a well developed sense of humour and an endless resource of memories to draw on for writing about pregnancy, baby and child related subjects.

I will work to either US or UK standard English spellings and usage according to your requirements.

Here's what some of my clients say:
OriginalOrange is a fantastic content creator on Elance, and I will definitely hire her again in the future for any content needs. Fast turnaround and high quality make OriginalOrange a fantastic choice.
