Interests

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 have been my passion ever since I was little. I've been studying English since kindergarten, and French – since high school. In my free time I try to learn on my own every other language that has inspired me in some way to do it. I'm mostly concentrated on Italian, Japanese, Esperanto, and currently Turkish and Neapolitan. I'm quite meticulous when it comes to typography, grammar and punctuation, so you may notice me editing all the time all lyrics published by me (and by others as well) and also all of my translations.

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

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 [songs] from and into these languages). I can understand to some extent the other languages which I've chosen as "studied", but I don't use them that frequently (or at all) 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 the translators for the changes I've applied to the source lyrics)
  • 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)
  • Œœ – for writing some words in French

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