Bilety w tramwaju kontroluje oczywiscie kontroler!
Explanation: If you mean for example a person who is a flight controller, the one-word answer is KONTROLER.
However, if you mean a person working in corporate structures, in the controlling department (in charge of controlling corporate costs etc.), unfortunately, there is no one-word equivalent. The position is called in Polish:
SPECJALISTA DO SPRAW KONTROLINGU
Sometimes, and that's really awkward although quite common, they use:
Explanation: Ivona. It depends on what the context of the sentence is. If we're talking about the verb form, i.e., a person CONTROLLING the show, it will be KONTROLUJĄCY. If we're talking about a person who for example checks tickets on the bus or information, it's KONTROLER. Finally, if we're taklking about controlling in the economic/financial sense, it's CONTROLLING.
