I am a translator for the English - Slovenian and Slovenian - English combination. I have plenty of experience with texts from various fields; I prefer general texts but I also translate more technical and specific texts.
I am confident, trustworthy, hard working, well organised and meticulous as well as self-motivated and target oriented. I am a fast learner who always strives to deliver above and beyond expectation and have the capability to take on knowledge and retain it. Apart from that, I am also able to communicate in a clear and concise way, work to tight deadlines and I am open for new challenges. I look forward with working on projects that will not only refine the skills that I currently have but also give me the opportunity to develop new one, acquire new knowledge and implement them in the working process of the company.

In June 1994, I moved from the Republic of South Africa to Slovenia. My parents are from Slovenia, but we lived and grew up in South Africa. With over 16 years of experience in various technical fields, I have developed a profession as a developer and technologist.

I merged individual skills to develop expertise; Doctors, specialists and leaders of organizations with whom I have been in collaboration soon noticed my skill using English and my interests, and exploited that. I have translated and edited documents in medicine, along with writing and publishing.
I have also merged my expertise in mechanical engineering and my expertise in writing; reviewing and translation of text, to create manuals and documents for mechanical devices, according to International + EU directives and requirements.

As a language enthusiast and a translator, I have always been inclined towards written word. I have already participated in some translation projects, and I have been working as a freelance writer and translator since my graduation. I strive to become "a well-rounded man" as Nick Carraway put it, so I am also eager to engage in any interesting project that enables me to grow as a professional writer and translator.

I'm currently a graduate student pursuing an Msc in Philosophy at the University of Ljubljana. I have extensive experience in writing in Slovenian, Croatian, English and Bosnian (examples available upon request), as well as some experience in translating academic texts, mainly in philosophy (Slovenian>Croatian and Slovenian>English). While my main area of expertise is in the humanities and life sciences, I'm also interested in stock trading, cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, and I'm very familiar with the relevant terminology (particularly in English, Croatian, Slovenian and German).
