Freelance Translator and Interpreter (English, Russian, Ukrainian)
Main areas of specialization: energy, mining, oil and gas, geology, business, environment, software, websites, and photography.
I have established lasting cooperation with large translation agencies from the US, UK, Australia, Spain, Greece, and China, as well as industrial companies from Ukraine. Major international companies, such as RWE, Vestas, Sandvik, CAT, and Bacardi are end users of my translations. In Ukraine, I provide translation and interpreting services to DTEK, Wind Power, Corum, Altcom, Siemens Ukraine, and Energy Resources of Ukraine. I also work with international organizations (OSCE, European Union Advisory Mission in Ukraine) and international media (European Times, L’Illustre, Good Morning Britain, and Oil and Gas Technology Magazine).
Most of the time I translate technical documents for power plants, mines, and oil and gas platforms; geological reports; design documents; contracts, economic reports, press releases, commercial proposals, and business correspondence. In addition, I localize mobile applications; more than forty of them are on my list as of today. I also translate photography-related texts.
I provide consecutive and simultaneous interpreting services in Ukraine and abroad. I have provided interpreting and organizational services during business trips to Germany, the Netherlands, Kenya, and Tanzania. I have interpreted at a large number of meetings and presentations for major companies, such as DTEK, Wind Power, Altcom, Siemens Ukraine, Energy Resources of Ukraine, and also during the OSCE election observation mission, and high-level meetings attended by the President, Prime Minister, Chairman of the Energy Regulatory Commission, Head of the State Property Fund, and other officials. I have also been a simultaneous interpreter at international forums, summits, conferences, and round tables.

Senior Translator and Interpreter. Service Enterprise of DTEK Fuel and Energy Company
Working in a team of five corporate translators, I gained invaluable teamwork experience and hands-on translation and interpreting skills in power generation, mining, oil and gas, environment, law, and business. Our team translated technical, legal, and financial documents for the corporate center, power plants, and mines, including business plans, progress reports, presentations, press releases, and contracts.
We also provided consecutive interpreting for management meetings, negotiations, presentations, and working visits to power plants and mines throughout Ukraine, as well as regular production meetings of the Power Generation Department and Brand Communication Department. We also performed simultaneous interpreting at regular monthly meetings of the Supervisory Board, Investment Committee, and HSE Committee.
