I am a retired captain of seagoing ships. I graduated from Maritime Academy in Gdynia in 1978 and I have been working as merchant officer and then as a captain ever since. For last 25 years I served as a Master in charge of oil and oil/chemical tankers. General topics covered during my career were: ship management, ships operation, shipping business and maritime transportation. Those topics were dealt with in English language, during every day business, as well as consulting jobs, reporting, inspections and operational projects. By the time I entered Maritime College and joined the industry I had already good command of English, as I had completed Grammar School Nr III in Gdynia, with English Language as a leading subject and most of the lectures delivered in English.
I admit, my limited experience as translator or interpreter. I hope to be able to extend it now with more time at my disposal.
