Teacher / In-house Translator

2008 - 2009

In these two years, I worked as a teacher and as an in-house translator. At first, I taught young children, teenagers and even adults and, later on, I was selected to be in-house translator for a multinational company. My job was to translate all company-related materials, such as technical manuals and press-releases. I learned how to work with their software and I was part of a multinational team, sharing experiences and opinions.

2006 - 2007

I worked for one year in a company whose core business was technical books and magazines. I had to perform clerical duties in two specialized magazines, dealing with clients, readers and investors on the phone, face to face or online. I represented the company at national and international fairs and I wrote, translated and revised articles for the magazines.
