    Someone wise once said, "a writer writes," and while that's true, a good writer can thoughtfully and accurately convey not only his own ideas, but the ideas of others as well. Over the last several years, I have written and edited material for a number of businesses and individual clients alike, from websites to educational developers to budding novelists and screenwriters. My strength as a freelancer stems from my accessibility, accuracy, and ability to understand each client’s individual needs. I have both independent and corporate experience in proofreading, copyediting, copywriting, narrative writing and editing, transcription, and more. As a lifelong student of literature in all forms, I specialize in proofreading, formatting, revisions and analyses of novels, screenplays, plays, and other narrative forms.  less

    For over 15 years, I have mastered in the technical and professional translation, working for public institutions and private companies. Also, I have proved to be an excellent organizer and event manager. My main competencies, apart from translation and localization, consist in reviewing and editing tasks for private companies, publishing houses or private advertising agencies, organizing and managing events, managing and editing web contents, as I do have an online interdisciplinary magazine, literary-oriented, which doesn't mean at all I have less skill and expertise in the other above-mentioned fields. I am open to new opportunities of collaboration, concerning translation and localization, web-content writing and editing, reviewing and editing, managing and organizing, for private subjects or businesses and companies.
