Professional practices Valentina Baslyk, PhD endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
Freelance translator with 17 years’ experience. My university teaching experience, strong research skills and inquiring mind enable me to translate a wide range of documents. I have translated books on health and nutrition, art catalogues, wall labels for museum exhibitions, academic articles (chronic diseases, multimorbidity, healthy eating in secondary schools), training manuals, dozens of patient consent forms, requests for proposals and general legal agreements. My forte is translating non-fiction books.

Pharmaceuticals: informed consent forms and other clinical trial documentation
Medical: articles on chronic diseases, patient questionnaires, back-translations, hospital records, promotional material on breast implants
Requests for proposals: medical devices
Academic: textbooks, art catalogues, essays, biographies
General: books on health and nutrition, IT manuals, general legal agreements
