English is as my second mother language. I’ve been using it for as long as I can remember, and everything I research is in English. I use it on daily basis for practically everything. There are thousands of project that I’ve done in English. One of my greatest passions besides English is medicine and IT technologies. So the project I’ve enjoyed the most was translating one paper from English to Bulgarian about Nanotechnologies in medicine, because it contained the 3 things I enjoy the most – English, IT technologies and medicine.
I’ve translated many papers of different subject for friends and relatives, and most of the times they pay for it, even though I have never asked for money. And as I said in the previous paragraph, I use English on daily basis for anything you can think of.
Well, to be honest I am overachiever. I’ve been overachiever al my life. I signed to study in mathematical school (which was the hardest in the time I was student), even though everyone told me that it is too hard and I won’t make through it. Well I did not only finish it, but I finished with excellent GPA (The grades are consistent with the six-scale grading system valid in Bulgaria, namely: Fail 2 (F), Satisfactory 3 (D), Good 4 (C), Very Good 5 (B) and Excellent 6 (A), where the highest grade is Excellent 6.00 and the lowest yet positive is Satisfactory 3.00. ) and with quite a few honorary diplomas from different competitions and quizzes. After that I decided to study something I had no clue of – Computers’ science and technologies. I finished that with 6, and again with multiple honorary diplomas, and first in my field of study. Even though I really wanted to make a career in my field of study, the current situation in my country made me lose my motivation and interest in it.
I have never imagined to work as translator, because I never really thought of it as a job, but something you just do in your everyday life, because you need to or because it’s fun, until I started doing translations for friends, and I got paid for them. Then I realized that this job is right for me, because it is more like having fun than working. But from where I stand now, this seems like the perfect opportunity, to prove that I can be one of the best from the bests .
