I have more than fifteen years of experience as freelance translator, from English, French or Slovene languages into Japanese. After living in many different countries and graduating from French university, I am currently settled in Slovenia.
I have translated more than ten books until now, most of them non-fiction (culture, history, art). I have also translated texts for different museums around the world (floor guide, press release, audio guide).
