"I believe in the power of human beings. I believe in teams and communication. Technology fascinates me. We can do great things together."

I hold a BA in linguistics and that made me start my career as an in-house linguist in one of the fastest growing translation agencies in the Balkans. As I was always amazed by technology and communication, and because serving clients was the agency's top priority, I shortly moved to the position of a project manager. Fast paced client focused environment pushed me to nail communication skills and made me excel in serving demanding clients.

Amazed with opportunities in the industry my entrepreneurial spirit was unleashed and I started a niche translation agency Abecednik - I ran it for five years; during that time I was awarded content marketing the POMP 2013 award for the monthly newsletter, and was awarded for the best translation at Translation Words Cup 2014.

After gaining visibility in the language industry, I shifted my focus to vendor management and joined the largest regional LSP to develop talent pools of linguists as a vendor management team lead.

Today, I work part-time remotely for a US-based client as a supplier manager. My strong people skills allow me to attract the most talented and reliable independent professional linguists available. I believe in the power of human beings, teamwork, and communication. When the right technology enters the mix, I believe we have the perfect recipe for success. The rest of my working time I spend on various creative linguistic assignments, such as proofreading, editing, MTPE, transcreation, LQA, machine training, lecturing.
