10+ years of successful experience in different translation fields gave me the understanding that I crave for literary translations. My first humble steps were a translation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s story ‘The adventure of the Greek interpreter’ and several video lectures of yogi Swami Rama (you can find feedbacks in my profile). At the moment I work on translation of my first book, but I definitely want more

I am English and Russian to Polish translator with a master's degree in literary translation and a passionate bibliophile. My affair with literary translation began at a young age when I had just discovered the Harry Potter series. Each book provided a chapter written by the Polish translator that explained the creative origins of all his decisions. It opened my eyes to the magical powers that lay in the hands of translators and made me realize my destiny to become a Wizard of Words too.
