Versatile experience in English into Bulgarian and Bulgarian into English translation. University degree in English language and literature with a minor in German. Native Bulgarian speaker who has lived and worked in the USA for seven years. I have specialized in literature, film subtitling, social sciences, EU, economics, marketing, medicine, legal texts, tourism and travel, ecology, sports, games, have done translations in various other fields, and I am always looking for new challenges.

Having taught English and American literature and translation helps me with my literary translations, too.

After winning a contest, I did simultaneous interpreting of lectures on economics and social sciences for foreign students at the Academy of Social Sciences and Social Management for two years.

I have done translations for different organizations, companies and clients from Europe, the USA, Australia and Israel. I have also done proofreading and copyediting of literary critique in English for the Research and Education Association in Piscataway, NJ, USA and legal proofreading for various companies in New York.

I have interpreted for the Bulgarian Sports Federation - consecutive and simultaneous interpreting, Bureau Translations - numerous translations on diverse subjects (for example, the Statutes of the Bulgarian Fishing and Hunting Union) and consecutive interpreting at international congresses and meetings. I translated three Walt Disney feature films and several Paramount feature films for an American company; Pink Floyd's The Wall for an underground magazine; multiple articles on economics and business management; numerous translation and editing projects on clinical research and other.

I wrote a paper on E. Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher.

Attention to detail and striving for perfection is my main goal.

My translations are usually accompanied by thorough research work and I do my Bulgarian to English translations in collaboration with a translator who is a native speaker of both English and Bulgarian.
