"Our trusted editor!"


Aleksandar Manić, producer-director-writer

Maja has helped me to shape the English translation of dense Serbian dialogue with a multitude of local color, an extremely challenging task, for my film The Shutka Book of Records, which went on garnering a number of international awards. Likewise she has significantly helped me to improve my Serbian writing, advising me on grammar and offering various language solutions, including suggestions on a variety of expressions in local dialects.
I also have recommended her as a personal translator to one of Serbia's greatest contemporary actors, Lazar Ristovski, during the filming of a James Bond movie at the Barrandov Film Studios in Prague, and have heard nothing but the highest praise for her professional attitude.
As I believe that Maja has a unique ability to find the right word for any shade of meaning, I highly recommend her as a translator, particularly from English and Czech into Serbian.


"Precise,flexible and fast!"

Prevodeći, Marija je uspela da prenese duh ponekad dosta komplikovanih tekstova iz jednog jezika u drugi. Čuvajuci humor i slikovitost izvornog teksta, ne prevodeći bukvalno već pronalazeći paralele. A sve to zato sto dobro poznaje sva tri jezika pa i sama ima osećaj za pisanje. Živela!
