Bio
I have been interested in foreign languages and translations most of my life. I studied German while being a student at the English Language school. It drew my attention due to the fact that it established links with a multifarious and rich culture. I studied French and Spanish all by myself when I was a soldier. I finished the courses for tourist guides at "Interhotels Balkantourist" during my first year at Sofia University "Kliment Ohridski". I worked as an interpreter in English in 1981 and as a guide in 1984. My diploma work was about the British Balkan policy in 1901-1912.
My post-doctorate was in the sphere of Italian modern social and political history. I had to master this language in order to accomplish my aim. The mix with Spanish was inevitable, but I managed somehow to step out of it. I read and analyzed more than 4000 pages of Italian documents. I was infatuated with this language, music, culture and even soccer to some extent. I fall easily in love with every foreign domain after I am engrossed in the process of getting in closer touch with it and working in it.
I have been working as a teacher at the South-West University in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria. I was teaching English-Bulgarian and Bulgarian-English translations. I strove to instil respect towards the rich lexical variety and flexible grammar structures of English in the students. I exacted precise rendering of the meaning in the respective language.
I have translated a few books, legal documents such as deeds and legal contracts. I was made to resort to the most adequate form of expression and translation in my lectures.
