WHAT I DO

I had a chance get to know the business as a project manager (member of an operations team), technical support for the team (member of an operations team), bid manager (member of a sales team), and, finally, a translator.

This way I gained a deep understanding of the world of translation which, in turn, resulted in my ability to offer versatile services and help my clients with a variety of linguistic aspects:

• Translation
• Backtranslation
• Creative translation
• Copywriting/Content creation
• Proofreading source against the target
• Editing (the target only)
• Script recording supervision
• Subtitling
• Cultural and linguistic consultancy
• Alignment
• Quality Assurance

As well as technical aspects:
• Project management
• File conversion and preparation (also for CAT tools)
• Reference materials creation (glossaries, translation memories)
• File migration

At the same time, I love learning new things and I constantly broaden my horizons. That's why, having analysed the expectations and scope of work, I am open to taking on various projects.

HOW I WORK - AND HOW IT BENEFITS YOU

Each project is different and I’m flexible when it comes to my your expectations.

At the same time, there are certain rules I follow:

ACCEPTING PROJECTS I accept projects only once I analysed the source text and got to know your expectations. This way you are certain that if I do undertake a project, it'll be completed accurately, on time, and according to your expectations.

QUALITY ASSURANCE I always check my own work, to ensure that my translations are spotless. This way you can rest assured that the quality of my translations lives up to my promises.

QUERIES If something isn’t clear, I don’t assume – I check. This way you are certain that your message will get across.

FEEDBACK I always welcome feedback, as this allows me to learn new things and develop my skills even further, and ensure you get what you are after.

CAT TOOLS, SOFTWARE & TECHNICAL SKILLS

I have advanced knowledge of various CAT Tools, e.g.:
• Trados (at the moment I use 2014, back in 2009 I obtained a Level 1 Certification)
• memoQ
• XTM
• WordFast
• Swordfish
• OmegaT

I also have advanced knowledge of the following packages:
• MS Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
• Open Office
• Adobe InDesign
• Adobe Illustrator
• Adobe Photoshop
• Adobe Acrobat
• Adobe FrameMaker
• QuarkXPress

I enjoy learning new things, that’s why I’m happy to work with clients’ proprietary solutions. With my research skills and solution-oriented approach, I can quickly overcome any technical challenges.

EXPERIENCE AND QUALIFICATIONS

An experienced translator, I also hold the following diplomas:

1. Postgraduate Studies in Text Editing and Proofreading from the University of Warsaw
2. MA in Translation and Language Technology from Swansea University, completed with distinction (Russian and English)
3. BA in Translation and Interpreting of Specialist Texts from the University of Warsaw (Russian, English, and Polish)

I also studied at the Institute of Russian Studies at the University of Warsaw (2004-2006). After 2 years of studying, I decided to change my studies to translation.

Moreover, I lived 5 years in the UK where I studied, worked in the business, mastered the language, and got familiar with the British culture. I returned to Poland in 2013 to continue putting my language skills into good use and I visit the UK regularly.

I continue developing my skills by attending specialist courses (linguistic, communication, psychology, please see the CPD tab for more details).

INTERESTS

An avid reader, I read books from the fields of psychology, self-development, as well as travel, history, documentary, and fiction – so anything well-written and interesting! The ability to read in 4 languages (Polish, English, Russian, and Spanish, I'm currently mastering the latter) gives me an immense pleasure and allows me to deepen my knowledge of these languages.

I enjoy using my time actively and I run, cycle, and swim regularly. Holidays are best spent in the mountains.

I also love cooking, I’m experimenting with Thai and Indian cuisines lately, and I attend cooking classes as well to get some inspiration and widen my horizons.
