Interpreting career began to establish during the last 2 years of high school. The exposure to the English Language was tremendous. I studied English and American literature, read books in English and also traveled to England as an exchange student. Next, I started working as a freelance interpreter/translator for a South African businessman that came to Ukraine to seek business opportunities. My responsibilities mainly included day to day help with getting around in Kiev, office work, phone conversation, letters, and real estate. A year later, I was offered and accepted a position to do research work. The research was challenging and completely different than anything I had ever experienced before; however, it was very interesting. I researched big companies on-line to fill up the rating questionnaire list pertaining to a Management and Excellence rating agency. I learned a lot about business and market research. I then took a position working for Alta Eastern Europe, a Danish software company. This was a very exciting change and I had learned a lot of information about computer software in a relatively short span of time. Though I was an office manager, my responsibility included some technical translations. My career stopped for a while soon after I came to the United States and created a family. I was a home staying mom from December 2004 - 2012 and worked part time only so I could be involved with my children’s life. I did some part time work for Scottsdale Homes and Remodeling, a Custom Home Building company along with Architectural Stone Concepts, a Stone and Masonry business in order to keep myself busy in the workforce. At the two companies I did administrative work as well as computer automated drafting and photo shop work in the design department. At present, I volunteer at the Mayo Clinic and go through a nursing program here in Phoenix to become a nurse.
During the 4 year nursing program I still would like to provide additional income into the family; therefore, I decided to get back into the translation/interpreting business. What attracts me the most about translating is that I enjoy doing it, I can work from home on my laptop, save time and ultimately save money on commuting to work. The time I save commuting, I can be watching my son play a basketball game or my daughter do gymnastics.
