Source text - Russian Я владею несколькими специальностями. По моему университетскому диплому я педагог, работал около 10 лет в школе, затем переводчиком технической литературы на предприятии. Перед поступлением в университет я приобрел специальности штукатур, маляр и установщик паркета. На сегодняшний день я беру заказы по установке паркета, что намного выгоднее мне в материальном плане, чем работа учителем.
Translation - English I have held several occupations over the years. I obtained a university degree in teaching and worked in a school for about 10 years. Later, I translated technical texts for a private company. Prior to attending university I was a plasterer, painter and a hardwood floor installer. At present, I am self-employed as a hardwood floor installation technician, which is a lot more profitable than working as a teacher.

I am a Canadian-based English language editor, journalist and proofreader with eight years of journalism experience. However, for about 15 years, I lived in Russia and Ukraine. So, I am fluent in all three languages (English, Russian and Ukrainian) and enjoy taking on translation jobs between journalism gigs.
