Post your proofreading and grammar-checking project on oDesk and hire proof readers and book editors with excellent grammar skills. You will also find professionals who have experience with proofreading software (like grammar and plagiarism checkers) and editing tools (like Microsoft Word’s “track changes” feature) to check the spelling, grammar and vocabulary of your documents. With accuracy and attention to detail, they can proofread business proposals, marketing materials and tech reports; review your articles, blog or website content; or correct book translations and audio transcriptions.

    FOR PRO ODESK PARTNERS ONLY PRO TRANSLATION I localize ENGLISH and RUSSIAN texts for 17 years. It's mostly IT or technical stuff, software, sites, movies, games, and books. And I like my job. PRO CUSTOMERS I may not disclose details on a public page, but major IT and engineering companies regularly invite me to translate their highly visible content. PRO MARKETING I graduated from Moscow State University (psychology faculty) in 1997. Then I worked at Moscow Gestalt Institute. I also partnered with COMCON-2, IPSOS & Mart market research companies and facilitated intercultural exchange. My expertise covers practical usage of psychology. PRO QA Every client likes when their deliverables are checked using ApSic Xbench QA tool for free. I also make final edits (just once!) free of charge. That's why my translations do not require considerable time / efforts to be finalized. PRO SOFTWARE No one is supposed to be a jack of all trades, but when it comes to l10n, it's good to have someone around who uses Trados 2007-2011, Passolo, Idiom, Wordfast, MemoQ, MS Localization Portal, ApSIC Xbench, Google Plus hangouts, Pro Tools, Audacity, Soundcloud, Camtasia, and Dropbox. PRO WORKSTATION My PC configuration is Core i5 3400, 8 Gb RAM, a big SSD plus 2 good displays. Accessoires include a HD webcam, a pro MIDI keabord and a pro DigiDesign soundcard. I also use a tablet to check your emails. Your Skype calls are recorded or/and redirected to my cell phone within 30 seconds. PRO QUALIFICATION I may not publish my localization projects because of NDAs. But I invite you to look at my LinkedIn profile http://www.linkedin.com/pub/andrei-kostrikov/a/866/77 Feel free to offer a short unpaid test or a more extensive paid test. PRO WORKFLOW Translation rate: USD 0.06-0.10 per source word Revision rate: USD 0.03 per source word Hourly job: average rate is USD 15 per hour Big simple tasks cost less. Your discounts for 100% and fuzzy repetitions are OK with me. Urgent projects (> 2000 source words per day) and projects with lots of reference files cost a bit more. PRO MULTIMEDIA A small team of sworn multimedia editors is always ready to dub, voice-over, clean or master your audio/video files. They use Mac Pros + Mboxes + Pro Tools + good plugins and monitors to achieve broadcasting quality. And they partner with me as a translator. A PRO SEEKS FOR PRO PARTNERS What I expect from you? 1. Hourly jobs 2. Respect (strict 'free ride' ban) 3. User-friendly environment Treat me as a nearby family doctor. And I'll do my best for you, in turn.  less

    Editing & Proofreading I once lost recess privileges for correcting my fourth grade teacher’s grammar and I’ve been inadvertently annoying people with my grammar skills since. I can easily pick out misused words, run-on sentences, misplaced commas, capitalization errors, and much more. When reading a client’s work, it is easy for me to pick out a line on page 127 that doesn’t make sense in relation to a line on page 21. I easily notice repetitive wording, name mistakes, a lack of detail, and more. I am knowledgeable in AP, Chicago and APA styles. Writing & Social Media I know what people want to read. Nobody likes boring copy! I have a knack for making even the most informational topic more interesting. Have a keyword? I can incorporate it into your article in a fun and interesting way. My writing has a natural flow that encourages conversation and leaves readers hoping for more. My experience includes blogging, web copy, informational articles, non-fiction eBooks, and creative fiction writing. My social media experience includes Facebook, Twitter, G+, Pinterest, Tumblr, and more.  less
