Dear Client,

I am here to help you with:

-          Your localisation project

Making the text natural and readable in Latvian, respecting your placeholders, layouts, character limits, conveying the voice and tone of your product and transcreating your catchy headlines.

-          Your EU-related text

Years as a freelance interpreter for the EU institutions enabled me to gain hands-on experience with EU-related content and learn to be accurate and aware of the EU bodies involved, the locations, the legislative process and its stages, and the approved terminology.

-          Your surveys 

Translation, revision and back translation of opinion polls and market research surveys; adjudication projects with other linguists and local institutes.

-          Your interpreting needs

Simultaneous and consecutive interpretation in Latvia and abroad. Contacts of other interpreters for creating teams. Please see my Interpreter’s profile for more details.

About me:

Translating since 2006 and interpreting since 2009.

An accredited EU ACI up to this day.

A member of three localisation teams working with:

*the app- and web content of a global peer-to-peer transportation services provider

*the online marketing content of a global, cutting-edge information technologies brand

*the online content of a global hospitality services broker

An excellent level of English, gute passive Kenntnisse der deutschen Sprache et niveau A2 de français. Мы можем общаться на русском.

If you need more information, feel free to contact me and request my CV.
