Independent professional translator. I’ve worked as general manager. As it turned out, also I’ve earned on the side as translator, because I’ve translated English documents and communicated with my English-speaking contractors/partners without translators, both orally and in writing. All by myself :-D Reasons to work with me: - I've been constantly developing my skills. - I’m a team player and I have great communication skills; - I know what my clients need. So I guarantee you Quality, Speed, and Reliability. I do L-O-V-E English language. That's why I can make your life and business easier ;-)
