Hi, I'm Ella - Wordsmith, Team Player & Spare Time Cartoonist
I am passionate about language - especially English. An experienced translator and writer for print and online media
I am keen to join the Media Partisans. Why? Because creative artisans and Media Partisans simply belong together!
A natural lateral thinker I use language as a creative tool. Said to be bubbly and friendly, yet focussed and thorough, I work as well independently as in a team. I love research, writing my own copy and finding just the right expression for that perfect translation. English to German and vice versa: From first to final draft I happily chisel away at the mountain of information, carving out the relevant message to make it communicate with our target audience.
I spy with my little eye that wee typo gremlin that managed to dodge the correction loop.
Sometimes, I tend to compose sentences, the construction of which may be a little complicated, especially when there are so many great words with which to describe complex interdependencies, thus I may catch myself creating pieces of writing of considerable, and - on second view - possibly unnecessary length, which I am trying to cut down to a manageable level.
Or let me rephrase that: My sentences are sometimes too long. I am working on it.
If you want someone 100 % creative, a team-minded, spirited individual that will occasionally talk "till the cows come home" then I'm your woman and team-mate. If you don't mind my dress sense, traces of a Northern Irish accent and let me give the office dog a tummy rub every now and then - we should be getting along famously!
