*Natural Language Processing, Computational Linguistics, Language Resources, Annotation for Machine Learning, LaTeX, Conference Organizer*:
I am a Computational linguist with a Ph.D. and can provide and design annotations and evaluate Natural Language Processing (NLP) software and resources. I can also review research papers, teach how to do that, edit research papers, edit LaTeX in Overleaf, and perform evaluations in the NLP/Computational linguistics field. I can assist with and I have long experience in organizing conferences and research workshops.
*Scientific experience - writing scientific research articles, LaTeX, research grants*:
I have extensive experience as a scientific researcher in the fields of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Computational Linguistics.
I have experience in translating and writing reports in the NLP/Semantic Web field, as well as translating, writing, and evaluating research proposals for several funding bodies. I am also a quite active reviewer of conferences and specialized workshops, such as ACL, NAACL, IJCAI, EMNLP, AIST, RANLP, the CNL workshops, the Slavic NLP workshops, etc.
*Translation, Localization, Transcription, Proofreading, Editing, Translation Technologies*:
I can translate and have experience as a full-time translator and freelance translator for the following pairs of languages: from English, Italian, French, Russian into Bulgarian. From Bulgarian into English and Italian; From Russian into English and Italian; I can localize.
I can work on a variety of topics, but my special strengths are in science- and IT-related texts.
I can use SDL Studio 2019, MateCat, Smartcat, and terminology software. I can transcribe audio recordings, evaluate the quality of translations, evaluate the output of machine translation engines, post-edit, edit, and proofread. I can proofread mainly for Bulgarian, but also if needed for English and Italian.

*Mentoring, NLP, Computational Linguistics, Language, Translation, and Annotation Teaching*:
I can mentor and teach Italian, English and Bulgarian, and Computational linguistics for linguists. I can mentor and teach annotators and translators.
*Previous work experience - Major and important institutions*:
I have experience working full-time for one of the largest and oldest Translation Agencies (Language Providers) in Bulgaria, as a translator for the European Parliament in Luxembourg; in a Social Computing and Crisis Computing research group and a Machine Translation and Arabic Language Technologies (Natural Language Processing) research group in a renown Computer Science Institute (QCRI). In NLP I have worked with various languages, including Arabic and Uyghur.
