About me
Educated as a translator and an interpreter with English and Ukrainian as my working languages, I have consolidated my knowledge and experience over the years. In 2002-2004 I interpreted at a number of conferences, lecture series and business meetings, covering such topics as European history, theater, health (for an NGO helping people who live with HIV), trade, agriculture, politics.
Since then I have also translated in the fiels of water and waste water industry, renewable energy (hydropower) and tourism.
I have also solid experience in translating official and legal documents from and into English.
In 2009 I completed an internship at TITELBILD Subtitling & Translation GmbH in Berlin, and in the following years worked as a film translator for several subtitling companies. In addition, I have solid experience in audiovisual transcription.
Throughout my career I have translated essays and articles in social sciences and cultural studies for Ukrainian publications.
Having lived and studied in Germany from 2004 to 2014 and passed level C2 examination (Großes Deutsches Sprachdiplom), I also translate from German into Ukrainian.
