I am Localization Engineer in one of the fastest-growing language service providers in Canada. 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.
For the last six years I have also been working 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 and Canada, and also 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.
