Yet my enthusiasm for and devotion to my profession are still as fresh as ever. When translating and editing, I thoroughly enjoy immersing myself into the unique world of meanings of any text I embark upon, be it literary or technical, putting the author\'s shoes on and rendering the subtleties of expression with the precision or imagination displayed in the original. With decades of writing, translation, language editing and language teaching of both Bulgarian and English in many parts of the world (Bulgaria, Russia, South Africa, the UK and the USA) to draw upon, my writing skills have been nurtured to the highest of standards. If you need translations, tuition, editing or writing displaying the qualities of a labour of love, look no further.

Work Experience Summary: I am a native Bulgarian speaker with mother-tongue proficiency in English. My career started with 20 years of broadcast journalism, announcing, voice-overs and hosting and a wide range of translation between English and Bulgarian in Bulgaria. This was followed by 13 years in which I lived, studied and taught English and Information studies and translated from Russian into English in South Africa. I have been living and working as a tutor of English up to A level, English as a foreign language and Bulgarian, translator, interpreter and editor in the UK for the past 5 years. My varied and extensive writing experience includes commissioning, editing, style-editing and writing material ranging from journalistic, general and business through literary to research publications. My qualifications and work experience have led to subject knowledge in a number of areas, such as Information Technology, Communication, Media, Journalism, Linguistics, Literature, Education, Librarianship and Business. Some additional skills of mine include abstracting, newsletter (print and electronic), basic HTML and web-site design and publishing, film voice-overs, information management and research. I have experience with MS Word, Excel, databases and HTML.
Education Summary: I have a Master\'s degree qualifying me as a trained teacher of English and Bulgarian plus a Cambridge CELTA certification. I also have a post-graduate Diploma in Information Studies and a Master of Information Studies degree obtained through research in South Africa.
