Dedicated research, methodology, and good research tools, usually lead to a good result, especially in translation.

As far as I have experienced in the last seven years, good research and expertise account for 90% of a successful translation.

The main fields in which I have experienced the above are software localization, mechanics, a minor portion of legal translations (certificates, contracts), marketing (retail magazines), and multimedia (scripts, subtitles).

Reading specialized literature as a hobby helps me to keep me up to date.

Lately I have worked in the video-news, subtitling, and transcription of audio (.vlc) and video (.avi/.mpg) files with Vegas (video editing) and Spot (subtitling software).

Always using CAT tools ensures fast turnaround of translation jobs.
I work with Trados Studio 2021. Available as interpreter for trade exhibitions shows.

Since 2018 Yoga Instructor 200hrs (Yoga Alliance) and Ayurveda practitioner.

Focusing on projects related to sustainable and conscious living, alternative medical treatments, cruelty-free lifestyle.
