Bio

I started translating documents as a job for the manufacturing industry since the university in the '90s. After a twenty-year career as an employee, I decided to get the best of my experience, and in 2013 I became a freelance translator. 

I am an avid learner and a research geek, keen on the right word in the right place for the right people. Additionally, I love words, how they work, their history, and how they develop and change during the ages.

Working in the translation industry seemed to be the best way to invest these skills of mine.

Choosing my specializing fields wasn't that simple.
I have many interests ranging from literature and arts to science and technology.

In the last seven years after many different translation projects, and various courses, I eventually specialize in the food industry. Since I steadily keep up to date in my professional development, I have recently added health and nutrition (both human and animal) to my work fields.
Technical translation for various manufacturing industries has remained a side field of expertise.
