I can say that I have a wide variety of interests, but the ones I invest most of my time in are (I've enumerated them more or less accordingly):

  • Languages – basically everything about them: learning/studying, examining/analysing their development in time, their impact on human psychology and way of thinking, translating etc.
  • Listening to and discovering music – that's where I earn most of my knowledge about any language. If I don't have any music I can listen to in my target language, I eventually abandon learning it.
  • Singing
  • Collecting vinyl records (so far I have around 80 of them)
  • Photography (not professionally, just for fun)
  • Astrology (my Part of Fortune is in Gemini, thus the wide variety in interests)
  • Calligraphy
  • Typography
  • Drawing portraits
  • Poetry
About me

 Hey there! My name is Nicholas and I'm 20 years old. Languages and music have been my passion ever since I was little. I started learning English in kindergarten, and French – in high school. I also used to study Russian for three years before entering high school, and due to the more or less mutual intelligibility with my native Bulgarian, I can understand it to a certain degree, but I'm not interested in it, so I no longer use it. I'm self-taught when it comes to every other language which I've chosen as "studied". Yet, I'm mostly concentrated on Italian, Japanese and Esperanto.

 I'm also quite meticulous when it comes to typography, grammar and punctuation. I respect each language's rules and particularities.

 Apart from LyricsTranslate, I occasionally contribute to the Bulgarian Wikipedia. I also have a personal blog (in Bulgarian) in which I blog about the music I love (currently on hiatus).

About the languages I've chosen that I'm fluent in:

 Please note that I don't consider myself fluent in any language apart from my native Bulgarian. Yet I've chosen English, Italian, French and Esperanto as the ones I feel most confident to both use and work with (with that meaning speaking and translating from and into these languages). As for the languages which I've chosen as "studied", I can understand them to some extent, depending on the language, but I don't use them that frequently as much as the ones I feel most confident with. I use them (only) to translate songs from, not into.

Shortcuts for signs I often use:

  • … (ellipsis as a single symbol)
  • × (times repeated) – I use it for any stanzas or lines that happen to be repeated in songs, as well as for indicating the repetition of the chorus
  • → (arrow pointing to the right) – I use it when I notify translators for the changes I've applied to the source lyrics or when suggesting any improvements)
  • Āā, Ēē, Īī, Ōō, Ūū (vowels with macrons) – for romāji transcriptions of titles or lyrics
  • А̀а̀, Ъ̀ъ̀, О̀о̀, У̀у̀, Ѐѐ, Ѝѝ, Ю̀ю̀, Я̀я̀ (Bulgarian Cyrillic vowels with grave accents) – used for differentiating some words which are written the same, but pronounced differently (quite rarely and not all of them being used)
  • Žž (Жж), Čč (Чч), Šš (Шш), Ǎǎ (Ъъ) – for transliterating titles of songs in Bulgarian
  • Œœ – for writing some words in French

Favourite singers, bands, instrumentalists etc. (sorted by nationality [in alphabetical order] and then by preference):

English, Esperanto, French, Italian
Czech, Hindi, Hungarian, Japanese, Neapolitan, Portuguese, Romanian, Turkish
