Hello there! My name is Priscilla McClure, and I am a young, well-rounded, creative professional, seeking to provide high-quality online services for prospective clients.
Born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, I graduated from the University of the West Indies in 2016, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish, minoring in French, with first class honours (equivalent to summa cum laude). During my university tenure, I pursued courses in Spanish and French language, Latin American and Caribbean literature, French for international conferences, Spanish for business use, translation, cultural studies, and Chinese (Mandarin). I also had the opportunity to sit the Diplomas de Español Como Lengua Extranjera (DELE) Levels B1 and B2 examinations, both which I passed with top marks.
The current services I offer include article and blog writing, internet research, proofreading, translation (Spanish to English and French to English), and transcription (UK and US English). My writing skills have been refined over the last few years, through studying languages at the tertiary level, as well as through my career experiences. I have undertaken article writing assignments for clients on Upwork's freelance platform, as well as through a personal WordPress blog of mine, which focused on natural hair care. I have also worked as a freelance transcriptionist on the TranscribeMe platform, which introduced me to best practices in transcription, including the differences between clean verbatim and full verbatim transcriptions. I also passed both the Pro Level Translators' Exam for Spanish to English Translation and the Standard Level Translators' Exam for French to English Translation on www.gengo.com, a well-known online platform for freelance translators.
I produce my best work independently, but I have also demonstrated an ability to successfully collaborate with others in group efforts. I am very familiar with word processing software, and am proficient in most web browsers and other computer applications. I am also social media savvy, and have experience in SEO article writing. I am resourceful, reliable, and mindful of the importance of maintaining accountability and managing deadlines. I strive to produce high-quality work, while developing my skills and learning as much as I can along the way.
