About me:

how pressurised the working environment can be.
My strong intellectual curiosity led me to study English linguistics and literature at degree level and, although I
currently have the opportunity to use my language and communicative skills, to be able to use them more
extensively in the field that I love the most appeals greatly to me. This aim for stronger communication skills is
reflected in my extensive knowledge of translation and language localization, as well as my knowledge of
Memsource, which always prove to be a valuable asset, as I can transfer my cultural awareness into my workplace
and tailor my work to the needs of my clients.
