    Freelance translator & full time Account Media Manager

    United Kingdom - Tests: 1

    I have strong interest in applying for a freelance translation positions. My professional background includes developing cross media annual media strategies, appraising and challenging campaign briefs, leading key brand, sales and promotional media campaigns, including building insights and campaign delivery.  Along with my main job in adverting industry, I have been professionally working as a freelance translator for the past five years. In my current position as a freelance translator, I translate documents and audio from Serbian to English and French and vice versa; in addition I perform verbal language interpretation on occasion. I have worked across variety of language projects — translating and interpreting business contracts and materials, academic publications, university coursework, and news articles. Over the course of my education, I held few groundbreaking and vital positions for building my professional skills sets in the translation and teaching industry. I was a language instructor while finishing my master degree in Political Communication at Goldsmiths University, London. In this capacity, I was developing practice sessions with overseas students at all language levels. Organising workshops, exam review sessions and cultural events for students wanting to upgrade their English and French language knowledge, thought me language teaching skills, project management, team building and strong sense of cultural nuances. My internships at two biggest Serbian TV channels and volunteering work at Brighton University’s Open Day helped me develop a strong expertise in using language for professional purposes and get exposed to large number of different cultures and social behaviours. Being a teacher assistant while finishing Philological high school in Belgrade (majored in English, French and Physiology) gave me the opportunity to participate in the academic course structure building, while guiding student’s academic goals and prospering their interests in French and English cultures and customs. I possess advanced fluency in reading writing and speaking Serbian, English and French languages and have traveled extensively to countries where English and French languages are practiced. This experience has provided me with a solid grasp of different cultures, various regional dialects and customs. I feel comfortable using these languages with an understanding of proper sentence structure grammar rules and vocabulary. My professional and academic work experience is supported by my proficiency in accurate and efficient translation.
