Polish freelance translator and proofreader. More than 10 year experience in translation and proofreading for EU institutions and agendas, including CORDIS ( Community Research and Development Information Service) - the gateway to European research and development; articles on scientific research in health care, medicine, environment, biology, technology, physics, IT, European policies, etc. Linguist with a pronounced predilection for social psychology and its sociocultural perspective. Another area fascinating me is the functioning of the brain and its role in guiding human’s behaviours, shaping the memories and perceptions. To understand better its intricacy and function at a higher level, I am studying the functional anatomy of the human brain. Definitely a dog person with an interest in canine behaviour. A keen amateur photographer (still assimilating various techniques) and an avid gardener. I’m fond of classical and jazz music.

Hello, my name is SOKADJO Jonas and I am a freelance translator. I am available for work .My university studies gave me a passion for translation. I graduated from the University of HECM of Cotonou - Licence LLCE English - Close collaboration in translation with the GENGO Institute since February 2015. I have a real passion for translation since university. It was quite obvious for me to become a professional translator. I greet you.
As a multilingual student with international experience, I have carried out various roles, the latest one being one of an Intern at the International Relations and Decentralised Cooperation Office of the Tours City Hall. My previous experience consists of working as an International Development Specialist at a Concierge Services Provider Company (point of contact with French and foreign-based customers, creation of quotes, international prospect research, client retention, etc.), and as a 4* Versatile Hotel Assistant.
I am known for my great curiosity for languages and interculturality, as well as my constantly growing passion for translation. Young and dynamic, I strive for perfection while keeping a serious but positive attitude.
I pay attention to detail when it comes to any task required to complete. I prove to be efficient and effective when working on a project requiring research and collection of specific data, even outside of my area of expertise.
I graduated in Translation and Business Management this year and I am a new translator, but with experience.
I translated mainly publications on Babylon Radio about living, studying and doing business in Ireland, as well as Covid19-related publications for Translators without Borders
