My passion for computers and video games began before I could write, and now I am a power user of both desktop and mobile devices, in close contact with online communities and familiar with a wide range of software. I also try to be conscious about global issues such as environmentalism and social justice, which often require thorough research to fully comprehend.

I perceive translation quality and catering to the client's needs as matters of personal integrity, and this is how I approach every assigned translation task. Feel free to contact me for my CV/résumé, any clarifications or questions on the ways that I can help you.

Thank you for reading,
