My real big first assignment as translator dates back to 2002, when I was surprisedly hired by a national magazine to translate a short series of multimedia press productions dealing with European tourism.
Since then, I gained many skills, and I am still stunned when bringing to my mind the precise timeframe I started to work in the field... maaaany years ago.
As you may notice here, I cooperate directly with various international brands/corporations. In this small space, you can find only a short description of the projects/roles I cover(ed).
