Translation has been part and portion of my studies, research work and professional activity for the past 10 years. Today, translation and research are integral parts of my daily activity: I am always eager to combine both tools and the connected approaches for ensuring accessibility and suitability of my research and giving more depth to my translations.
My expertise in the field of translation and proofreading developed over the years, as well as my practical hands-on experience provide me with a proper understanding of what I'm translating & the needed technical knowledge and rigor for completing quality jobs within a given format, language level and deadline.

My CV can be submitted upon request.
