My passion for the Social Media world introduced me to this discipline and made me attend several courses on this subject, obtaining several diplomas and offering me the possibility to work for several international companies as a Digital Marketing and Social Media consultant.

I also run my own video blog for translators and interpreters, www.transgalator.wordpress.com. And you can find me on Twitter as @transGalator, you can follow my Facebook page "Transgalator" and connect with me on LinkedIn profile.
