Bulgaria - Last active: 14 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 5

I can work fast, cheap and with high quality. You can pick only two of the three :) Over the last 10 years I have been working for local and foreign companies - translating on a daily basis; these include one of the biggest Bulgarian companies - "M-Tel" - a mobile operator (translating press-releases); one of the biggest American subtitling companies - "Deluxe Digital Studios" (translating, proofreading, S/IQC of various features, featurettes and trailers); multiple accountancy and law companies - translating and editing their documentation and presentations. For the past four years I have been translating, transcribing and recording training and teaching materials for an audit company. I have also served them as a copywriter. My multiple publications in various spheres on local and national level (mostly books and magazines) have been highly estimated. Since 2003 I have been working with the Union of the Bulgarian Writers - provided overall interpretation for their international seminars, translating books (including poetry) into English and editing Bulgarian and English texts of various nature. I have translated about 15 novels from English, 2 from Czech, 2 to English and 5 poetry books. I have interpreted (simultaneously) from and to English on many International forums and meetings. I founded my company Galexa Pro Ltd. in 2009 to meet the growing needs and requirements of my customers. They work with me because of my professionalism and loyalty - qualities that are currently the basis of my company.

Marco S.

Author and a native speaker of Danish

Denmark - Last active: 25 days ago - Tests: 4

My name is Marco! I am a young and very straightforward employee, who is always ready to make a hundred percent out of the material I am given. Simply a young and successful man that you can count on! I hope you wonder why you should choose me instead of all the others? Well, first of all I can say that I have about 5 years of experience in translating English-Danish and Danish-English. I am a native speaker of Danish. Currently, I am studying English and have done this for several years now. Another very important thing to know about how I work is that I would rather use another 30 minutes to check for mistakes, than hand over a product that is of a lower standard than it could be. As a translator, I do not just translate. I try my best to find the perfect word to get the same message out there when the project is translated. As a translator, I aim to provide the best possible experience for those who are going to read it later. Because of my mixed family roots, I am a quick learner of new languages and I have currently been studying French for the last 26 months.
