Built on solid ground: your translator in the jungle of Bulgarian construction business!

From tendering and contract signing through construction to hand-over certificate and warranty period: I’ve been there for the major international construction projects in Bulgaria in the last 7 years – professionally as a translator/interpreter and in the best interest of the job: educated as a construction engineer who understands the meaning behind the bare translation. Construction trade and related features hold no linguistic secrets for me: be it a contract, material specification, design, method statement, offer, you name it, one thing is sure – I am the person to translate it right.
