My translation experience includes subtitling, text translation, translation project management, software and website localization and lyrics translation.


  • Translated the subtitles to over 3800 minutes of video (feature films, web series and TEDTalks: design, literature, art, IT, social/life/exact sciences)
  • Revised/reviewed the subtitles to over 1300 minutes of video
  • Created subtitles (closed-captions) for the Deaf/hard-of-hearing for over 400 minutes of video
  • Spearheaded and managed global volunteer subtitling projects
  • Created instructional material and subtitling guides (e.g. "How to break lines," "Transcribing talks," "Compressing subtitles")
  • Mentored translators/new subtitlers in subtitling and the use of subtitling tools


  • Translated/reviewed/revised over 450 000 words of ERP software
  • Participated in several website and videogame localization projects
  • Used a variety of online and offline third-party and in-house tools
  • Coached translators and managed localization projects


  • Vast experience in several fields (academic, marketing/PR, technology, manuals, correspondence, press releases, etc.)
  • Coached/mentored new translators and provided detailed feedback on translators’ work
  • Created and maintained crucial terminology and compliance resources and general translation guides (e.g. "How we track terms down" (video))
  • Managed several translation projects (recruiting and training translators, monitoring their work and providing ongoing feedback and support, monitoring compliance, providing tech support, coordinating between the translators and the client)


For several years, I have gladly dedicated my time and skills to helping projects that I found meaningful reach a wider audience. Read about what drives me to be a volunteer translator/subtitler here and here (and in this video).

  • Worked as a volunteer translator/reviewer in online projects (e.g. translating subtitles for the web-series The Guild, working as a Language Coordinator in the TED Open Translation Project)
  • Translated and reviewed the subtitles to over 150 TEDTalks and TEDxTalks (click here for examples)
  • Supported the volunteer translation community through mentoring, feedback, creating instructional tools and championing innovations in the Open Translation Project
  • Organized global volunteer subtitling sub-projects (recruited and mentored translators and reviewers, supported and coordinated the translators, provided tech support)


  • Translated (adapted) lyrics for over 45 songs for the English-language releases of Polish goth/metal/rock bands albums (click here for selected examples)
  • Provided accent coaching and in-studio assistance to the singers
  • Wrote original English-language lyrics
