CV/Resume English (DOCX)
Legal and literary translator from New York, with linguistic and creative writing education and long-term experience in the legal field, which includes working for numerous New York law firms, international corporations, governmental entities, including the New York State Unified Court System, the City of New York and other US governmental offices. Applying to a PhD program in theoretical linguistics. Some of my translations and my own literary works have been published. Most of the literary works I translated were translations from Russian into English and from Polish into English. I have translated several shorter pieces from Swedish and Lithuanian as well, including some translations of old manuscripts. Recently I have been working on translations of two collections of poems and a novel, a non-fiction book and regular everyday translations, mainly legal.

I have extensive experience in translating medical trials and financial materials as well.

I provide legal translation only from Russian and Polish into English (not from any other language). I also provide court and conference interpreting in Polish/English and English/Russian language pairs. Only general and literary translation from Swedish.

I learned all the languages I work with as a child including English, both the natural way and then in school. My mother was Polish-speaking and father Lithuanian-Russian. The languages I use the most in my ordinary life are English and Russian. I have lived most of my life in the United States and have all higher eduction in English (British and American). My graduate education is not exactly a diploma, but there was no other choice here. (pre-named selections)
