Professional practices Aida Samardzic endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).

I am an efficient and qualified freelance translator & interpreter working part-time since 1989, gaining extensive and diversified experience across a number of areas, such as:

politics,economic and monetary affairs,media,public relations, security affairs,social-politics,humanitarian affairs,legal (laws, contracts, customs),justice, institutional affairs,education,culture,financial affairs,energy, external/internal trade,transportation,medical,pharmaceutical. (The above were concurrent to the full-time employment posts.)

From 1992 until 2009 I worked for the United Nations where I gained invaluable experience and skills in translating a wide range of written materials and interpreting at high-level meetings. I can demonstrate a highly proficient level of command of English language. Skilled, responsive, highly reliable and cooperative, flexible, strictly following agreements and deadlines; have a positive, friendly, professional can-do attitude and strive toward continuous professional development.

I currently provide interpretation/translation services for a number of organizations/agencies, amongst others UNDP, UNICEF (under Long Term Agreement). During my long translation career, I have translated many projects/documents in the fields of politics, conflict resolution, judiciary, crime and law enforcement, external relations, law, contracts, economy, military+security affairs, environment, ecology, medical and pharmaceutical.
