Bio

Multilingual Linguist  Content Writer

Life Sciences  Legal  Localization


I am an experienced trilingual linguist and an aspiring writer with a demonstrable history of continuous self-development against the backdrop of an unprecedented boom in language technology and localization services. 

In 20+ years of working in the industry, I have developed a competent yet culturally sensitive approach to multilingual content, the demand for which has become the backbone of the world gone global. 

My educational background in Social Sciences, Economics, and Clinical Psychology, along with my lengthy professional experience in legal translation, marketing research, creative and copywriting content, has bolstered my expertise in Life Sciences and Legal fields. 

I have learned to navigate all major CAT tools, various client’s working environments, and other open-source and proprietary MT tools. I am skilled in content optimization, desktop publishing, creative writing, critical analysis, and research.

I am scrupulous, highly organized, web and computer savvy, endlessly curious, responsible and respectful, with a healthy approach to time management and a strong belief in the medicine of laughter.

After many years of mirroring other people’s words, I grew desirous to create the words that are my own. I’ve written numerous feature articles, reviews, blurbs, copy notes for both print and online publications.

I have completed a 2-year Post-Baccalaureate Program in Creative Writing with Certificate of Distinction from UC Berkeley, California, published over 15 language textbooks, 3 dictionaries consisting of over 300K words and phrases, and 3 children's books. 

I am an active voice in blogosphere and social media, tirelessly exploring any new hunting grounds for multimedia storytelling. Feeding on the immense societal appetite for anything big and novel―be it a new consumer product, an inspirational story, or an entrepreneurial tip―I am looking forward to gaining more experience in presenting original and/or copy content in a pleasurable and easy-to-digest format.

Privacy is a two-way street. On my side, I promise to keep it straight and respectful.
