About me
"A Different language is a different view of life"
Qualified freelance translator with 7 years of experience. I am a native speaker of Russian And Ukrainian languages. In 2009 I graduated with BA and MA in German and English Philology and World Literate. Being a student I started to practice my translation skills as an Interpreter/Translator for tourists. When I had summer breaks, I worked in German camp such as" Wiedergeburt" ( 2006,2007), assisting a German volunteer in teaching a German Language to the children. I have lived in Germany for 2 years, where I improved my written and verbal skills. For almost 4 years I have been living in the USA.
Translation is my passion. It is a job where I forget about everything, all what I see the words in front of me. And I can't wait to get to know their meaning.
Traveling the world, hearing different dialects, meeting new people, new culture, all of it is a biggest treasure I could dream of. I am proud I can speak 4 languages and able to communicate with people no matter where I am.
On my free time, when I do not have to do translation, I spend my time drawing, reading, playing piano, diving or hiking.

My principles in translation job:
-never accept the translation job, I am not sure in it;
-meet the agreed deadline;
-willing to do a short (150 words) translation test;
- using glossaries, on-line and of-line vocabularies.
