Born in South Africa to a Polish immigrant family, I grew up speaking English natively while also having a constant connection to the Polish language. Having spent most of my life in a linguistically diverse country, I became enamoured by words and decided to pursue my studies in languages, literature and linguistics. My majors were in Spanish, French and Translation at the University of Pretoria. I have also taken various finance, business and economics courses and worked in the finance and tax sectors for several years before becoming a full-time translator. 

In addition to finance, I also provide exceptional translation services in the business, legal, tax and marketing fields.

I provide my clients with accurate, high-quality and well-researched Spanish, French, and Polish to English translations of legal, tax and financial documents, marketing material, and corporate communications.
