Overview

I am a native speaker of Croatian, born and educated in Croatia, with a strong interest in languages. I was offered work as a translator whilst still completing my studies and I discovered that I really enjoyed it.

Service Description

I am committed to providing accurate, high quality translations whilst respecting deadlines. I believe that researching and understanding the background to a translation is essential: I only apply for jobs that really interest me. This is how I make sure that I enjoy what I do.

Together with my husband, I spent three years working as a translator for a project documenting oral history in the former Yugoslavia. During this collaboration we were approached by other individuals and businesses: we have carried out highly technnical translations for global engineering firms such as Siemens, as well as translations of academic texts for non-governmental organisations dealing with human rights.

All my translations are proofread by my husband, who also does proofreading and editing work independently.

As well as a strong interest in technical and legal matters, we share a love of history - particularly that of the Balkan peninsula.

I was awarded a 'pass at grade A' in the Cambridge Proficiency in English test in June this year (2014) and am currently studying French at the Sorbonne in Paris, hoping that one day I will also be able to work in that language too.
