I translate English to Serbian, Serbian to English and speak both languages fluently. As far as translation experience is concerned, I have worked on a host of different translations ranging from tourist and travel brochures, articles, websites and web pages with various topics, manuals, literary texts to CVs and other client-tailored documents.

Quick response and quality translations are guaranteed since good feedback is of the utmost importance for establishing clientele. Needless to say, my top priority is to ensure client satisfaction.  less

    As a Human Resources Manager for several years and with different organizations, I have helped companies properly translate and write policies and procedures originally written in English to Filipino or the Cebuano dialect. This made employees better understand the policies and procedures resulting to zero conflict between management and employees due to erroneous communications. Part of the experience is proofreading as policies and procedures have to be concise, accurate and specific so as to eliminate errors and conflict caused by ambiguity.  less

    Over the last 10 years, I have worked as a copy editor, writer, and journalist for print publications, web magazines, social media, and have managed writing freelance writing communities for a major media company. I have a degree in English and rhetoric (with a focus on fiction writing), and I have experience writing about music, movies, and other arts, as well as experience writing about a variety of educational topics, including medicine, finance, home and garden, tech, food, and other how-to topics. My experience includes years of copy editing in high volumes, so you can expect a quick turnaround. I am fluent in AP Style, Chicago Manual of Style, and I've even created my own style guides for internal use. What makes my work stand out is that as a writer, editor, and manager of writing communities, I can provide realistic expectations for cost, TAT, and the final product you will receive. There are many people who can read quickly and type quickly, but I can promise meaningful content that is accurate, spelled correctly, and will not require you to re-edit.  less
