Bio: English and Romanian licensed philologist, language teacher and translator, with an additional postgraduate academic degree in Applied Informatics and Computer Programming.

The expertise acquired through previous professional experience in the fields of language teaching, information technology and business management represented the basis for my future career as a professional freelance linguist and localization specialist in areas such as software and hardware products, localization of websites and video games, online and offline marketing and advertising, transcreation, review and editing.

My career as a full-time freelancer started 9 years ago and is currently based on long-term collaboration with major business names in these fields, as well as with various institutions of the European Union, schools and universities, and private clients.
