Professional practices Pawel Michniak endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I hold degree in both linguistics and law. I have been operating in translation business for 15 years. This is enough time to translate thousands of pages and spend thousands of hours for interpreting. I mainly deal with law, banking and foreign trade but you are also welcome to ask me about other subjects. My customers from all over the world are my best value, please see feedback I have from them or the list of some companies I work for directly or through various translation agencies:

Atlas Copco
Bauch & Lomb
Bristol-Meyr Squib
Chevron Phillips
Hilton Hotels
Johnson & Johnson
Medtronik Sofamor Danek
Philip Morris
Texas Instruments
