Specialised translations & subtitling

The following topics depict the areas I have most regularly worked in. Over the past few years, my general focus has strongly shifted towards subtitling. I also feel fortunate to have been invited to help with translator education. For two academic years I taught translation on MA level as Visiting Lecturer at the University of Westminster, and I am tutor for MA students in the Distance Learning "Translation Studies" course of the University of Birmingham. I have a wide range of interests and hobbies that have provided me with specific knowledge and skills which I can easily combine with my linguistic expertise to work on relevant projects.
