I am native Ukrainian - Russian speaker. I have perfect command of Italian and working knowledge of English. My best language combinations are Italian>Ukrainian, Italian>Russian, I also accept translation from English.
As to my education, I have just graduated in Cultural Mediation, combining my studies and full time job. I also hold a degree in Applied Mathematics. I have developed an excellent eye for detail while studying math and working as an engineer in Ukraine.
I have studied violin for eight years, which contributed to my creative approach to work.
I believe that qualities like discipline, precision and creativity are valuable for a translator.
In my opinion, translation is not just about turning texts from one language into another, as linguistic knowledge without cultural understanding can lead to costly misunderstandings. I lived in Ukraine until 1999 and then I have lived and worked in Italy for 17 years, have thus become deeply rooted in both the source and target cultures, enabling me to convey your message fully and accurately across cultural borders.
