Bio

I am a professional translator for Ukrainian, Russian, German and English with Master degrees in International Law and International Economic Law. I have studied at the universities in Ukraine, Germany, and the UK. 

I worked for 6 years at the Austrian Embassy to Ukraine and could gain a solid experience in translation and interpretation. 

Since 2008 I have lived in different countries and have worked as a freelance translator. I have also volunteered for organizations like “Indonesian Heritage Society” and German-speaking women’s association in Jakarta. Living abroad, I have always been a member of the international community. My cultural and geographic knowledge of different nations assists me in translating content for the fields I work in. Understanding cultural particularities makes knowing of a source text easier and helps in tailoring it to the target audience.  

I like researching, analyzing, asking questions and looking for answers. The key fields I work in: 

● International Law

- international public law,

- international economic law,

- international arbitration etc.

● International Relations

● Political Economy

● Digital Currencies

 

Additional fields:

● Travel & Tourism

● Literature

I also have extensive experience in website localization and open for new projects and fields of interest. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me for any further information.
