MY COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

  • Unlike many translators, my background is business - I can translate with solid understanding of the end client's business model and how the text would be used within the business context.
  • I only take projects from the domains where I possess unparalleled domain knowledge and industry jargon - I received nomination from the end client since the very first year of working as a freelance translator.
  • I possess strong business acumen - I proudly maintained sales in the six figures during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic because I successfully predicted the fields that would have strong demand and growth during the chaotic time.
