Professional objectives
  • Meet new translation company clients
  • Meet new end/direct clients
  • Screen new clients (risk management)
In 1978 I graduated in Social Science from Catholic University of Lublin.
Did one year of postgraduate studies on G.C. Jung (Psychology).
In 1979 I spent ab. 6 month in Vienna and went for Australia.
Love Australian outback, mountains and deserts where I spent a lot of time.
Tasmania was exceptional experience, mostly rafting across the Jungle.
We made two trips around Australia, each took us 2 months to complete.
After few months in Tokyo, I decided to go back to Poland

Back in Poland I worked as an interpreter and translator for 6 years, for there different employers, including public hospital. One year as a teacher of English in High School and many years as a private teacher. Apart from exceptional experience of working with young people, it was a very good opportunity to go through the English Grammar in details.

In 1993 I passed relevant examination and obtained Translator's License from Chief Polish Technical Organization (Naczelna Organizacja Techniczna) Warsaw 1993.
Since 2000 I am full-time freelance translator working from home.

Live in a countryside of South-Eastern Poland where I also breed horses.
