ABOUT ME

A gifted linguist and talented business consultant with market research and business development experience in France, Germany and Spain, offering freelance linguistic services since 2007.

My quality commitment includes accepting only projects whose fields fit my personal knowledge, experience and background, carefully conveying their original meaning, and of course,
in an absolute respect for deadlines.

My academic background includes bachelor's degrees in Biology, Translation and Interpreting (English and French as majors), and Romance Philology (Spanish, Italian, French and Portuguese as majors); a Master in International Business Management (specializing in International Marketing and Market Research), and a Master of Arts in East European Studies (specializing in Russia).
