I have over 20 years of experience in translation business (including professional engagement in the English speaking international organizations in B&H from 1997 to 2010 - UN Mission to B&H (UNMIBH), European Union Police Mission (EUPM) and OSCE. I also possess two prestige certificates in advanced English – Cambridge ESOL Certificate in Advanced English CAE – C1, and UN English Proficiency Certificate, which proves my excellent understanding of English at the professional/business level.

Besides, I am freelancing for international and local clients for over 15 years, so I specialized translations in various fields, including:

Web translations/ Marketing
Mechanics / Mech. Engineering;
Electronics/Elect Engineering;
Power generation/Pumps/Air-conditioning
Business/Commerce; Account/Finance; Management/HR
Government / Politics International Org/Development/
Law/Legal translations/Contracts
Certificates/Diploma/Various personal documents, etc.

In the international organizations I was working at various positions (from professional translator and interpreter, human rights assistant, public affairs and press assistant to the national political officer) and all of them required comprehensive knowledge of all the languages used in Bosnia and Herzegovina and former Yugoslavia, especially those used in Bosnia – Croatian (which is my native language as I was born and educated in Croatia), Bosnian and Serbian, and of course, English.

Also, my work for international organizations required proficiency in all Microsoft applications and excellent communication and writing skills, while working as a freelancer, I mastered use of CAT tools such as Trados, MemoQ, XTM, etc.
