Certified PROs.jpg

I am a native Bulgarian speaker, a professional linguist and a full-time certified (sworn) freelance English to Bulgarian translator holding an MA degree in English Studies with a specialization in Theory of Translation, living and working in Bulgaria and teleworking for more than 100 direct clients and translation agencies in Europe, Asia, Canada, and the United States, providing high-quality translation and editing services, and devoting meticulous attention to detail while working on each project. I have a proven track record of always delivering even the most challenging projects on time.

I have eighteen years of experience as a freelance translator/editor/proofreader from/into English, and fourteen months of Federal Government experience as a Program Support Officer at Natural Resources Canada, Office of Energy Efficiency, Ottawa, ON.

My profile tagline A creative flair for words reflects both my keen and strong interest in translation and my personal belief that every single text, even the most difficult one, which is full of either idiomatic phrases, puns or specialized terminology, can be adequately and successfully rendered into the corresponding target language(s). If by any chance an untranslatable text existed, it would probably be in the form of undecipherable ancient hieroglyphic writing.

While my current focus in translation is EU Affairs, I have had extensive experience with many different types of texts. I specialize in fields such as Cinema/Film/TV/Drama, Clinical Trials and Clinical Interviews (Psychiatry), Government/Politics, Poetry & Literature, Tourism and Travel.

Working Fields Advertising, Business/Commerce, Certificates/Diplomas/Licenses/CV’s, Computers (General), Education/Pedagogy, Finance (General), History, Law (General), Linguistics, Marketing, Media/Multimedia, Medical (General), Software Training Videos/Video Tutorials.

I am a published poet and translator. To view some of my poetry and translations, please go to My Publications page on my website. In 1997, I received a Certificate of Honorable Mention in recognition of literary excellence granted by the National Authors Registry, USA. I also won a second place award in the 2002 Bulgaria National Haiku Contest held by the Literature Club e-zine. Last but not least, I take pride in the fact that I am a seven-time winner of translation contests.

I offer competitive and negotiable rates, high quality translations and reliable turnaround times. Please email me for a free quote. Thank you.

References and CV/Resume will be submitted upon request.

Thank you for visiting my profile.
