Service Description

I have extensive experience working with Microsoft Office (20002007), Adobe Creative Suite (CSCS5.5 Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and Acrobat Pro 4X) and PageMaker 7 and FrameMaker (also on the SGML structure) in versions 610, Macromedia, Corel, Quark, CAT (SDLX, SDLInSight, Passolo, Across, MemoQ, Trados, Studio, Catalyst, Transit, Wordfast, Metatexis, DejaVu) and others (also for video processing: AfterEffects, Premiere and Pinnacle).

I work with the Windows, MAC and Linux systems.
