Bio
Dear customers and colleagues!

I am a qualified translator/interpreter with over 10 years' experience in the field. I started as an English teacher and gradually embraced more and more opportunities to interpret and translate, finally settling down as a fully fledged translator/interpreter with a professional education and Diploma in translation and interpreting.

Marketing-related translations, like cosmetics advertisements, customer-friendly product descriptions, websites, press releases etc. are my cup of tea as I enjoy taking a creative approach. Other areas of specialization include, but are not limited to, economics, education, EU affairs, business documentation, including articles of association, contracts, correspondence etc., investment funds, online gaming, health care, cooking.

In addition, I am an accredited EU conference interpreter and have the experience of working in a multitude of settings, such as conferences, meetings, negotiations, press conferences, exhibition openings, workshops, etc. in all most common interpretation modes, such as simultaneous, consecutive, whisper-translation, video conferences, and community interpreting.

The key words describing my performance are: creative, fast, reliable, open to learning, flexible and pleasant to deal with.

References and my CV are available upon request. I am looking forward to cooperating with you.

Yours sincerely,
Ilona Kangro
