During my numerous travel experiences I was exposed to multiple variations of my source languages, which contributed to enriching my knowledge of these tongues. Traveling and working in multicultural environments on five continents also allowed me to apply a cultural approach to languages - to see my source languages as communication tools used by persons of various cultures. It lets me also keep my language skills fresh and keep abreast with constantly evolving and changing languages. This experience contributes to a more broad and open-minded approach to every document I translate.
