Bio

My name is Pawel Olaf Sidlo. I am a Polish freelance translator (native speaker). Since about 2003, I have been involved in translations in many different fields as a freelance translator.  

I am a very diligent translator. I can work at weekends and even on holidays if a project is urgent. I have a dedicated high-speed Internet connection and some of the most powerful tools capable of handling large volume projects such as Trados Studio 2017. 

Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have. I will answer any questions, and I will even do a small test, if necessary. Some examples of my translations are available on my ProZ profile in the “Portfolio” section.
