Bio








Hello, welcome to Beata’s Proz profile. I’m
a CERTIFIED translator and interpreter by training in Newcastle
University which offers one of the top T&I programme
(Chinese stream) in the world. 

The professional training enabled me to be armed with extensive background KNOWLEDGE, translation SKILLS, and the ATTITUDE to
go above and beyond what's expected. There’s no bragging about the very
fact that I'm
dedicated, client-oriented and 100% reliable
.

Meanwhile, I have 4+ years of practical experience
as a translator (including subtitling) and proof-reader for translation
agencies, platforms and professional teams, both part-time and full-time
remotely. I'm obsessed with accuracy and quality. For each task, I
do extensive background research to get a thorough understanding of
the topic and the text and double-check my translation
before delivering professional work.
