My biography and experience
WHO I AM - CEO and founder of a boutique translation agency - General manager, project manager and sales manager – as well as translator and editor – of a team of translators - freelance translator since before the end of my studies, back in 2005
MY ACCOMPLISHMENTS - Organised a team of translators which is operating successfully today, thanks to our devotion to quality - Managed and translated over 25 million words in areas such as engineering, IT, business, education and more - Assisted many clients in achieving the best possible results for their translation projects, whatever their budgets and needs - Created an efficient management application, helping our company to reduce project management and accountancy costs and automate the administrative processes
THE QUALITIES WHICH DEFINE ME AS SOMEONE DESTINED FOR THE TRANSLATION BUSINESS - I’ve had a passion for languages and entrepreneurship since I was just ten - I enjoy thoroughly researching every challenge I face: starting from “how to choose a notebook” or “design your apartment” to “what is SEO” or “how to create a business video”. That’s why I’m competent in everything that my company offers - I’m detail-oriented and can easily spot mistakes, especially other people's – which is good for business, but can be annoying at times in my personal life - I’m a perfectionist, so I do my best in everything I do. If I feel unable to do something perfectly, I hire a specialist - I possess good people organising and managing skills, acquired during my university years when I ran a youth theatre and a number of fan clubs - I’m fond of dictionaries and I've enjoyed actually reading them since my childhood
MY INTERESTS - Gaining new knowledge through books and travel - Giving expression to my thoughts and hopefully helping others in articles on translation topics - Enjoying recordings of hi-fi music, from pop and rock to folk and classics.
