MY CV: As a TOP RATED Upwork freelance translator, I have successfully completed 109 jobs with 100 percent client satisfaction. You can check my Upwork profile here: http://www.upwork.com/fl/petrazrilic/.

I have my own translation company, am a native Slovenian speaker, and I am still living in Slovenia. I own a pro license in memoQ translation software. In addition to Upwork, I also work regularly for various agencies, and I am an active member of other freelancer platforms.

I hold a professional bachelor's degree, I graduated from Faculty of Tourism studies, and my title is Mediator in tourism. While working at three different companies, I learned to work quickly and efficiently on various administrative tasks. I also gathered many different experiences while working as a receptionist, librarian, interviewer, promoter, and server in four different restaurants.

As a young translator, I have already worked on numerous tourism, cosmetics, jewellery, marketing, IT, technical, and legal translation projects. Besides translation, I also have experience in writing in Slovenian and English (blog posts, articles, reviews, reports, and essays). As a student, I received Silver Cankar Award for Slovenian language at a national level competition.

My past projects included translations of:  various technical manuals  heavy machinery descriptions  IT content (websites, support texts, brochures, catalogues)  legal contracts and articles (also EU documentation)  safety data sheets  laboratory instrument descriptions  apps/games/computer programs descriptions  jewellery and fashion website content  sport and casino website content  real estate and insurance software content  product descriptions (chemical, cosmetic, machinery, appliances, electronics)  tourism articles with other hospitality related texts (menus, meals descriptions, promotions)  marketing content for various websites (adds, prize draws, invitations, e-mails)  social accounts posts and other promotional materials for five global cosmetic brands

My most important and largest project included various proofreading/localisation assignments for a major web search engine company.
