Meet the team
Ema first came to the Zagreb office in 2019 as a student, during her postgraduate student practice. The enthusiasm of the whole team and the exciting challenges of being a project manager won her over and she returned to Alkemist immediately after earning her master’s degree in English and Comparative literature from the University of Zagreb. Her future plans so far include improving her knowledge of Italian and German, which she has ardently expanded on each summer while working in various jobs in tourism … as soon as she catches a break from reading yet another beloved book.
After finishing her studies in French and English language and literature and honing her skills at the Directorate-General for Translation of the European Commission, Maja started her career as a translator, with a particular preference for translating EU-related texts. However, she was soon ready for new challenges and joined Alkemist's Zagreb team in 2018 with great enthusiasm as a project manager. She enjoys her work as it provides her with the opportunity to demonstrate her organization skills on a daily basis, and her favourite part is finding new ways of going above and beyond for her clients. Besides her main role, she also contributes to the positive atmosphere in the office with a constant flow of witty comments.
In May of 2015, Zagreb's office expanded its team and opened the new position of Back office support. On this occasion, Nina Andrijata joined our team and with her many years of experience in accounting, she significantly contributes to the organization of the administrative part of the work of the translation agency. And while everyone gets annoyed with administration and paperwork, our Nina enjoys it and she is looking forward to every new challenge/task, to enter it into one of her million Excel files. Yes, that's right, our Nina is a real Excel addict :). And since we in Alkemist believe that every individual has the right to show their full potential and be rewarded for their contribution to the team, Nina was promoted to the position of Head of finance of the Alkemist Group in September of 2017.
Anamarija joined Alkemist's Zagreb team in 2019, after finishing her studies in Spanish and Dutch language and literature and years of work in different fields of the lanugage industry fields. Her love for languages, translation, organisation, quality assurance and constant learning all come together in her role as a project manager. Witnessing happy clients and associates after a job well done is what she finds the most rewarding in her everyday office life. After a day at work, the chances are great that she is watching yet another crime movie, otherwise you might just as well run into her in one of the ballet or yoga studios.
Lea joined the Zagreb team in 2017 after working in the sales and translation industry. As a project manager in Alkemist, she united her organisational skills with her passion for languages, translation and working with people. Understanding the client’s needs, managing project timelines and performing translation quality checks are some of her main responsibilities. She holds a master’s degree in English and Portuguese from the University of Zagreb, and spent a semester studying at the University of Porto in Portugal. In addition to English and Portuguese, Lea learned German, Spanish and French in the course of her education, but is planning on expanding that list in the future.
