DEAR LADIES & GENTLEMEN,

With relatives scattered around the globe, the choice of my future profession was quite easy. Are you interested in а productive multifaceted translator with a university background? I worked as a translator for many years, happened to translate lots of medical materials based on EudraGMP terminology of the European Medicines Agency, financial and legal documents, authored journalistic articles, worked as a researcher at O.Bogomoletz institute of the Ukrainian National Academy of Sciences. I participated in the implementation of International Accounting Standards at the pilot banks in Ukraine, translated for Philip Morris' contractor and did plenty of part-timing here & in the USA. E.g., in 1990-ies I chanced to translate the Royal Dutch Shell Production Sharing Agreement with the Ukrainian Government which is traversing the former soviet corridors of power ever since. My strength is Ukrainian language (CertifiedPro), so when you need some expertise in Ukrainian, it's probably me http://www.proz.com/?sp=leaders_new [pairs English to Ukrainian & Ukrainian to English]
I have improved my ProZ ranking recently, became the no.1 all time KudoZ points leader in English (native) to Ukrainian (native) language pair, no.1 in Russian (verified native) to English. FYI: only 2 native languages are allowed by ProZ, alas! I lectured at the Kyiv Institute for Translators and Interpreters (post-graduate technical translation course), enjoy the freelancer's lifestyle.

With best regards,
Vladyslav Golovatyi, PhD
