About me

I am a professional English-Polish translator and proof-reader. I have a master's degree in English linguistics (University of Wrocław) and an MA degree in Computing (University of Aberdeen). My experience in the field consists of many projects performed regularly for a variety of translation agencies, direct clients and non-profit organisations. My main fields of specialisation are medicine, clinical trials and public health.

Currently, I am working as a freelance quality manager for two major global language service providers, but I am also looking for new sources of translation and proof-reading jobs, both from direct clients and translation agencies.

To provide the best language services within deadlines convenient for the Client in the fields that I am competent in.

Language competence and translation direction
My 20
years-long process of learning English (including 5 years of higher
education in linguistics), the 9-year's period I have spent living and working in
the Scotland, United Kingdom as well as my continued professional training in my specialisation fields allow me to offer services in both Polish and English with full understanding of both languages in the professional capacity.
