Professional practices Mirka Lenarcik endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I trade under the name of Precise Lingo Services offering English-Polish and German-Polish, and occasionally also Polish-English translation, proofreading, editing and research services. I am a native speaker of Polish with an excellent knowledge of English and German. I have been working as a part-time freelance translator since 2001 and as a full-time freelance translator since 2012.

Before launching a full-time career as a freelance translator I worked as archaeologist, museum assistant, and program coordinator in the academic and healthcare environment. I started out my translation career working as part-time translator. I also worked as in-house translator in Hotel Reservation Service, in Germany, translating the company’s website into Polish.

My educational qualifications include Bachelor of Arts in ESL, Master of Arts in English, and Translation Certificate. In addition, I hold MA degree in Archaeology and PhD degree in Jewish studies. My comprehensive education and broad interests have given me a good understanding of several subject areas, in addition to my own areas of expertise. I have been involved in proofreading and translating of many published archaeological and geological articles, and published PhD dissertation. I have worked for the scientists from the Universities of Rzeszów, Kraków, and Poznań.

One of my strongest qualities is my close connection to the English and German language and culture because of an extended period of living in Germany, Canada and the United States of America.

I am also committed to the idea of volunteerism and I have offered my services free of charge to the following institutions: Virtual Shtetl and Selfhelp Community Services.

• General translation, marketing, fashion and clothing, history, software and apps, technical and medical (equipment) texts, art, culinary arts, tourism and travel, websites
• Translation of scientific articles in archaeology, anthropology and geology
• Translation of PhD dissertations, for example, “The Nakum Archaeological Project: Investigations on the Banks of the Holmul River, Guatemala”
