Roman - A Brief Overview Independent Language Specialist

Native languages: RUSSIAN & UKRAINIAN
Known but not offered for translation: GERMAN

Note: Ethically, I firmly believe in fair rates for good work and refuse to consider payment rates that are clearly exploitative. Expect rates of USD 0.04-0.10 per source word depending on technical content, urgency and other criteria. Quoted rates are negotiable.

Raised in Kolomyia - multicultural town in Western Ukraine, studied Liberal Arts in Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, Engineering in Kyiv Polytechnic Institute worked as a construction engineer for various Ukrainian companies over the years.

I chose to work in construction business in Kyiv (2002) and continued to live and work there until 2010. Now I work on myself as a language specialist and data base developer in Kolomyia (a beautiful town!) with clients based all over the world, primarily in the US, Europe and Asia.

My translation experience is strengthened by my having been bilingual for most of my life, by engineering and IT background, and by a role of translator from late 2010 and a translator team leader from early 2013.

Previous experience as a PSRA team head and an executive director at TA have given me strong skills in time- and work-load management, not to mention a capacity to understand what clients want and provide it in a timely manner.

I now have a business as an independent language vendor and am looking to build a strong, reliable client base for long-term work opportunities; agencies, individuals and organizations all welcome.
