Detail-oriented, meticulous yet creative native German editor/writer/translator and jurist with a firm grasp of the English (UK and US spelling) and German languages, in-depth research experience and a background in law, marketing, and publishing. I spent a couple of years (until 2014) working as a researcher and writer for specialised – financial and legal – publishers in London, UK. • Editing (developmental & copy editing) and proofreading tasks are performed with a high degree of accuracy, an eye for consistency and coherence, readability, and text-flow to ensure your German texts are clear, appealing, and audience-appropriate. • Linguistic review of German online content/websites (regarding the use of market-appropriate language in the context of specific or all user journeys, evaluation of UI and UX, etc.) • Machine-Assisted Human Translation (MAHT)/localisation/transcreation (ENG/GER) as well as creative and technical writing services: I offer 15+ years' translation/writing experience (website content, Google ads, white papers, contracts, business plans, surveys, marketing material, etc.) with particular expertise in legal, financial, engineering, IT, and healthcare subject matters. Above all, I am committed to delivering high-quality translations that are both technically and culturally accurate in the fastest possible turnaround time. • Legal research & contract review is focused on EU and German law. • In addition, I have a penchant for literature and the arts and will take on any given subject with great enthusiasm and diligence.

Important notes: - A one-hour minimum ($90) will apply to all hourly projects and milestones. - On fixed-price contracts, I will perform 1 round of revision. Additional revisions require the assignment of a new milestone. - As I handle legal/sensitive information on a regular basis, I do not work with the automatic Upwork time tracking tool due to confidentiality issues. - Despite being a fully qualified German lawyer, I do not practice law anymore. When editing/proofreading/translating legal documents or conducting legal research, my work products do not constitute a legal opinion or legal advice. They are prepared solely for your private use and not a substitute for the advice of a licensed attorney. Thank you for your understanding.

They include animals (2 time dog mom), hiking/outdoors (I live in the wonderful PNW) , motorcycles, travel, personal growth, all things sweet, and of coarse writing. How do I choose? Or somehow combine a couple?

Hi Elna! Thoroughly enjoyed this delightful, informative article. I am a full time paralegal with a B.A. in Journalism. I’m about 5 years away from retirement…and would like to shift from full time paralegal work to freelance writing. I’ve been writing a column (“Throwback Thursday”) in the local paper for a year now, for free, but of course I get the bylines from those which is how I’ve built my portfolio. How would you reccomend I transition to freelancing. I’m interested in writing about legal topics for lay people…such as how to find a good attorney…and small community life…and parenting.

Thank you so much Elna for these 20 tips. I am new to freelance writing and have recently read Writer For Hire: 101 Secrets to Freelance Success by Kelly James-Enger, and would recommend it to anyone, but was still feeling that I needed more. A quick google search led me to this blog post of yours which has given me the extra boost I needed. Many of my ‘How do I get started?’ questions have been answered. I am taking one of your free courses and am planning on taking your ‘Write To 1K’ course very soon. The price for your course is very reasonable and I can’t wait to start. A quick scan of your blog has assured me that I have found a goldmine of resources and I want to thank you again for taking the time to share your learning curve and your experience with us all.
Great post! it is essential for writers and marketers to know what the audience wants. As a marketer, I would like to share that great content for the marketers is the one which is relevant for the people who are searching for it, since that will also be great on SEO terms. Improving the rankings is the major goal of SEO and this happens when the content is well-written as well as totally relevant to the search queries. Thus, being aware of the synchronisation of content with SEO, the writers also know the final goal and are able to write as expected of them, avoiding the unnecessary stuff.
No matter who we’re writing for, or what sort of material it is, every content writer is a researcher first and a writer second. In nearly every case, the content writer will be dealing with a subject that he or she is not familiar with, and must do adequate research to ensure that all the information presented in his or her article is accurate, current, and doesn’t contradict the company’s existing messaging. Good research is the foundation of good content writing. And for those of you wondering, yes, this article is the rare exception to that rule – I actually knew this stuff already. #web content writer
Think of it this way: What do you have more chance of hitting, a distant, tiny target or the broad side of a barn? For the sake of search engine optimization, you want your website to be the broad side of barn. The more quality articles, or unique readable content, your website or blog offers to search engines (and therefore the general public) the more exposure your website will receive from major search engines.
The most common way for people to find products or services online is to use search engines, especially Google, Bing or Yahoo. These search engines have certain criteria for giving websites more (or less) opportunity to be returned in search results. The way to obtain dependable, long term search engine optimization is to post as much quality content to your website as possible. The more unique readable text your site contains, the more logical area search engines will have to index and thus refer people to your site. More quality content means more opportunities for your website or blog to receive traffic from major search engines. #article scraper
