Freelance translator

When it comes to translations, I strive for true professional English, German, Italian, and Slovenian and not just the mere translation of terms. In my work I use different programs that allow me to always follow the same terminology.

I have already translated for the Institute of Archaeology ZRC SAZU, the Institute of Preventive Archaeology ZRC SAZU, the ZRC SAZU Research Station Nova Gorica National Museum in Slovenia, the Gorenjska Museum, Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Ljubljana, ZZZS and other professional bodies. I have also translated some popular books for young people. For several years I have also been cooperating with several translation agencies in Slovenia and abroad, which send me texts for translations in the professional (medical reports, technical specifications, annual reports, professional papers) and popular fields on a weekly basis.
