Bio

Legal translation by a trained lawyer

I am a professional translator with more than 15 years of experience. I hold a master´s degree in translation and specialize in the field of law. My mother languages are UKRAINIAN and RUSSIAN and I am a fluent speaker of ENGLISH and GERMAN. 

I have studied languages at the universities in Ukraine and Germany. I was awarded a KAAD scholarship and spent almost a year at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. 

I also have 6 years of experience as an in-house translator, interpreter, and assistant at the consular section at the Austrian Embassy to Ukraine. I am a translator at Translators without Borders. 

I hold two master´s degrees in international law and international economic law from the universities in Ukraine and the United Kingdom. My master´s papers dealt with the system of collective security, which is the UNO, and the scope of the arbitration of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). I have also attended professional conferences for lawyers and legal translators. 

I have experience in working in print media and I am familiar with the process of preparing articles for printing, in particular, proofreading, editing of articles, verification of historical data and information. 

I would be glad to answer any questions and be helpful to you.
