Professional practices Andrzej Wijas endorses's Professional Guidelines.
I am Localization Engineer at one of the fastest-growing language service providers in Canada. I am responsible, among other things, for technical preparation of projects, process automation and quality assurance. I also translate between Polish, Russian, Ukrainian and English.
I graduated from the Jagiellonian University with a major in Russian Philology and specialization: Translatology. I am a holder of TRKI-3/TORFL C1 and LCCI Level 3 certificates.
I am listed in the Register of Translators of the Polish Federation of Engineering Associations (no. 011560) as a translator of Russian specialized in: economics, mining, computer science (IT), linguistics, culture and art.
Since 2012, I have also been working regularly as freelance translator from/to Polish, English, Russian and Ukrainian for several companies and portals which deliver translation services (LSPs) from Poland, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, Canada and other countries as well as for companies not related to the translation industry.
For almost five years I also managed software localization to approx. 30 languages, including preparing term bases, supplementing translations, proofreading and QA, at an IT company related to the translation industry.
I was also Language Lead in one of the largest translation agencies in Poland. I was responsible for providing translators with complete instructions for projects I handled, and for verifying their work.
