I am native speaker of Bulgarian and my professional language pairs are English – Bulgarian, Spanish – Bulgarian, French – Bulgarian and Portuguese – Bulgarian.

For the past twenty years I have been committed to professional translation, interpreting, editing and proofreading. I have an MA and BA in Tourism and a post-graduate specialisation in Marketing, Advertising and Business Communications.

I specialise in Hospitality, Tourism & Travel and a wide range of economy related areas, as well as certain technical fields.

My professional interests include hospitality and hotel management, quality standards, project management, operations management, property management, real estate, investments and consultancy, law (esp. commercial), fashion, and many others.

My special fields of interest include: fashion; oenology, food & cuisine; religion and religious art (esp. Orthodox); speleology (caving), climbing; woodworking (carpentry) and wood carving and everything related to them.

I also am a certified tour guide in Bulgaria and tour leader abroad in Bulgarian, English and Spanish.
