My name is Jelena Delibasic. I am a professional English to Serbian translator and interpreter with 13 years of experience. I started my career as an in-house translator and interpreter. I translate documents related to social policy, labour and trade union issues, human rights, environmental protection and politics.
1. At the moment I'm attending a marketing translation course by Crisol Translation Services hoping to gain more knowledge and skills because I love translating texts for the purpose of marketing.
2. Also, I have extensive experience in translation for construction companies. I have worked on localization of their websites and materials as they are planning to expand to Serbian market.
3. Another area of my expertise is subtitling. There is a client who trusts me to make subtitles into English mostly for educational videos.
Last but not the least, I am in love with interpretation. I do both consecutive and simultaneous interpretation.
As Steve Jobs once said, ‘The only way to do great work, is to love what you do’, and I really love what I do.
This is how I would describe my work style
When I get an email from a client, I tend to reply as soon as possible because I believe that’s how a professional, responsible person should behave. I know how it feels to be left without an answer from an agency.
Then, I talk about the conditions for the task at hand and the deadline. I think very hard about my capacities at the moment and the realistic time I can deliver the job and negotiate on that.
What do clients get when working with me
- Competence, responsibility
- Responsiveness, flexibility
In the end, hopefully, I close the deal.
Jelena has provided simultaneous and consecutive translation for us on several occasions. She has also translated many documents. She is always very professional and the service is excellent. I highly recommend Jelena for Serbian - English translation.
I have worked with Jelena on numerous occasions over the last six years. My organization, the Solidarity Center, has worked in Serbia for many years, and our primary work has been to support trade union initiatives to improve the conditions of work in the workplace and legal framework.
Jelena has been a consistent part of this process since 2016 and a key part of the delivery of these programs and in a project linked to developing a union strategy to confront the climate crisis. Jelena played a crucial role in this work in providing both simultaneous and consecutive translation for me on numerous occasions. Our work required Serbian - English and English - Serbian. She is excellent in both and has been one of the most proficient interpreters I have worked in over 30 countries. She would also translate program material in a timely fashion as well as interpreting for television and radio interviews linked to programs. She is a very competent professional whose skills and expertise I totally endorse.
It is my pleasure to provide a reference for Jelena Delibasic, an exceptional English-Serbian translator. I have known her for several years and have considerable experience of her translating skills.
She delivered high quality work, always on time, showing great attention to detail and accuracy in using specific terminology in her areas of expertise.
I can confirm that she carried out her assignments with the utmost professionalism and capability while adhering to deadlines.She was a pleasure to work with and I am very happy to recommend her.
