Interpreter professional experience

I have been working as a professional certified interpreter/translator in Kiev for the past few years since 2012.  I've been providing interpreting services on non-business meetings. Conducted interpretation during personal meetings of the clients. Interpretered in Kiev for the visits at hospitals, stores, real estate agencies, banks etc.

My work experience includes interpreting at both business and non-business meetings and events, e.g.

  • sales meetings and negotiations,
  • trade fairs and exhibitions,
  • international forums,
  • workshops and staff training days,
  • compliance audits,
  • court hearings,
  • business talks on Skype,
  • medical appointments,
  • property showings,
  • sports events,
  • informal dates, excursions etc.

Apart from being your interpreter at business or personal meetings, I will be happy to assist you with virtually anything you might need during your stay in Kiev (airport pick-ups, accommodation arrangements, restaurant reservations, shopping etc.).
I can be your entertainment & nightlife guide and show you the best places for dining out or clubbing in Kiev. I can give you a general tour of Kiev or take you to any specific sights you are interested in seeing.

Organizing community service events together with American Councils and other Ukrainian interpreters.

Certified translator for legal documentation and meetings

Providing interpretations and translations on a regular basis.

Assistance on business meetings and negotiations with clients, auditors, state authorities – Legal and Business English interpreting.

Independent interpreter practice and background

As a freelancer, I have provided translation services to people from various business fields and industries, e.g. IT and e-commerce, agriculture, pharmaceutics, fabrics, automotive parts, food processing, food exports, logistics, woodworking, printing, fashion, cosmetics, entertainment, taxi services, and many others.

Before I made the switch to freelancing, I spent two years selling advertising space for two English-language magazines based in Kiev.  B2B sales of advertising space for the magazines:

  1. What’s On Kyiv and
  2. Panorama, the in-flight magazine of Ukraine International Airlines.

Many of my clients as well as my bosses and half of the staff were English-speaking foreigners. Our office was run by two expats from the UK, and many of the sales meetings were held in English.

Additionally, I offer written translation services (translation of business correspondence, legal agreements, advertising materials, websites etc.)
