    For over 10 years I have been engaged in the amazing world of translation, editing, and writing.

Some of them include: medicine, geology, geography, finance, accounting, law, and many others. The projects I have worked on vary from medical textbooks to drama plays and PhD theses. My motto is "Never stop learning", which is why I have chosen the field of writing, translation, and editing as my field of work. Here are what my clients say of me and my work: “A pleasure to work with” - Flodschi, Elance client; “Very professional.” - annaruseva, Elance client; "Vladimir is a highly qualified translator, reliable and hardworking person; cooperative and loyal..." - Nevena Krasteva, ICU Publishing " Very solid work." - Manol Peykov, Janet 45 Print and Publishing I offer translation, editing, proofreading, and writing services to all my clients.

    Translator/Writer, Dutch-English

    Netherlands - Portfolio: 3

    I am a Dutch native speaker who lived in London for a while. Since I read and speak English on a daily basis, it was inevitable for translating to become a part of my life. Interested in writing and languages, I started taking on assignments, took a few specialized course and started to receive assignments on a regular basis from the agencies I work for. In the meantime, I acquired the Cambridge Advanced English C2-certificate. My translating experiences range from medical texts to book projects, and include less technical texts such as brochures and websites. I write and I have realized that being a writer enables me to be a more fluent translator. I have a soft spot for fiction, nonfiction and poetry. I have translated three poetry books from American into Dutch and one prose book from British into Dutch. I work on a regular basis as a Dutch text editor on fiction and nonfiction books. Educationwise, I have a Masters degree in literature from a Dutch University, alongside some specialized translation and language courses.
