About me
Dear visitor,

My mother tongue is Croatian and I'm professional translator with the university degree (4-years-programm) in German and Italian language and literature (Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Zagreb).

I also have good knowledge of the English language (CAE).

Although I've been in business for more than 22 years, I still didn't get tired of it - quite the contrary, I love my profession a little bit more every day.

Every job is a new challenge for me, an opportunity to learn something new. Therefore I gladly accept tasks not strictly connected with my fields of expertise.

My most important fields of expertise are technical – engineering, architecture – civil engineering – town planning, marketing, economy and tourism.

Among numerous projects I've done so far these are the ones I consider the most important:
- translation of numerous technical manuals (i.e. construction machinery, electrical appliances, satellite dishes, industrial separator, sandblasting machine, gardening tools, gym equipment, …)
- ongoing translations in the field of architecture including translation of scientific and professional papers
- translation of short, but very demanding advertising texts for a German translation agency (including transcreation)
- brand names checking for a German translation agency
- translation (partially), proofreading (partially) and localization of the web pages for the Croatian branch of an Austrian translation agency
- translation of the web pages for several hotels
- translation for the exhibition „Project Zagreb“ for the Museum of the City of Zagreb
- translation of the web pages for an Eye clinic in Germany
- translation of professional papers in the field of dentistry
- translation of the Lexicon of educational sciences

Most of the time I translate, but I also accept proofreading jobs. My specialty in the proofreading area is proofreading of test translations - in addition to correcting them, I also give my opinion on the whole translation (minor and/or big mistakes, command of target language, familiarity with the subject).

If you want to learn more about me, send me an e-mail - I'll write you back gladly!

Hope to hearing from you soon,

Ivana
