    I am a native Bulgarian and I love working with languages. I have studied English for 14 years so far and have successfully passed two Cambridge ESOL examinations - FCE and CAE. My freelance experience includes about a year of writing and rewriting articles in both English and Bulgarian, proofreading (English and Bulgarian text) and translation (EN-BG, BG-EN) on many different topics. I enjoy working in spreadsheets and am currently learning how to use databases. I am used to SEO work and have assisted with adwords campaigns. I can also work with all MS Office pack programs. My attention to detail together with my proficient skills in English and Bulgarian grammar, spelling and punctuation make me a person you would want to hire.

As a medical student and an avid reader I am able to deal with documents of a relatively technical nature and I will only undertake work I know that I can deliver with 100% client satisfaction.  less
