Professional practices Valery Shapovalenko endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
You don't just pay for my time spent at work or words / characters translated. You pay for the years of my experience collected and other mentality translated. Invest in quality, cheap and quick can turn to be more expensive in the long run.

I started my translation/interpreting career in 1986 at the Kiev Bureau of All-Union Center for Sci-Tech Papers & Documents Translation (USSR). At that time, good translators and English / French speakers were extremely rare, this implicated my versatility across industries.

Since then I worked within numerous industries, which areas are listed below.

Language pairs: English, French <=> Ukrainian, Russian (and vice versa upon certain conditions). English <=>French excluded.

Working domains:

Aerospace, Accounting, Aviation, Broadcasting (TV&Radio), Business, Civil Construction, Commercial, Contract Law, Defense, Economics, Ecology & Environment, Education, Finance, Hydro Power, Information Technology, Law & Regulatory, Linguistics (English, French, Russian, Ukrainian), Logistics, Management, Marketing, Medical, Military, Nuclear, Power Generation, Renewable Power, Telecommunications, Transportation, Weapons&Armament.

I personally certify I have strong practical experience within areas listed above. Please allow some reasonable time to research per area ordered (normally, a day or rarely two).

Only 'human' translations provided. No Machine Translation allowed, nor accept mt-translations editing (ask me why).
