Hi everyone!
I’m Alessandra, part-time librarian and part-time translator from Italy.
Can someone look at my gig and be the most strict critic ever? 😉
I can’t wait to learn from your advice.

Thank you!

Hello Alessandra!

I took a look at your gig description. It looks good, and you are on the right track. The only issue I had while reading it was that it got a little broken up at points.

“My specializations include literary translations (do you have that e-book out there and want to reach more people? Here I am!), blog posts, journal articles, costumer support emails, handbooks and manuals.”
^This part specifically. I had to re-read it to make sure you hadn’t listed only one ‘specializations’

Here is how I would fix it:
“My specializations include literary translations, e-books, blog posts, journal articles, costumer support emails, handbooks and manuals. Translations that I offer can help you reach more people!”

Last part can use a little work too:
“I’d love to hear from you, if you have questions don’t hesitate!”
“Do not hesitate to message me about any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!”

I would also adjust the bullets for time length on how many words you can translate. Such as:

"-700 words in only 24 HOURS!
-5k words in 3 days!
-10k words in just a week!

(Message me for options for texts above 10k words.)"

It’s all up to you if you listen to my advice or not. That’s just my two cents. 🙂
