Over a decade's experience in media, specialising in content and editing. Starting in the media industry as a translator, I moved on to editing and content management. In my career I have worked as the Assistant Editor (for print and digital) of a daily newspaper; and as Editor (print and digital) of a magazine. I have also completed studies in SEO and Digital Marketing. In recent years I co-founded Frannic Creative, a registered company focusing on custom software development and content solutions.

    “Sometimes I needed to put one and the same comment or correction twice. Eventually the freelancer made all the necessary corrections. Probably I sometimes didn't put the tasks or the comments with absolute clarity. I don't rate 5 stars because there were some minor hiccups, though corrected by FranCreative. I would wish the freelancer to be a little bit more attentive to the comments)).”
