Experienced, Culturally Savvy Translator (English, Russian, Ukrainian)

!!! I am currently operating out of Western Ukraine, after having been displaced by the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. I am still available for work. !!! [Important Note: I am indeed from the US, but I am currently in Ukraine (UTC/GMT+3). Please bear the time zone difference in mind when reaching out with project offers. I respond to all invitations received in the middle of the night first thing in the morning local time.] I am an analytical and quality-oriented linguist with over seven years of experience in translation, interpretation, and TEFL. My educational background is in Russian Language and Literature as well as Linguistics, and I have also passed C1-level Ukrainian writing, reading, and speaking testing. After receiving my honors degrees, I worked as a translator for a political science laboratory, translating and cataloging thousands of Russian-language articles into English for research purposes. I then spent two and a half years in Northeastern Ukraine working as a University English Instructor. I accumulated thousands of teaching hours, wrote and won several U.S.-government grants, and pushed my language skills to near-native fluency. Since departing the Peace Corps and receiving my C1 Ukrainian, I have worked as a freelance translator/interpreter. My first priority is, as always, customer satisfaction. I will be happy to deliver a product that both addresses your needs as a client and surpasses your expectations in quality. I look forward to working with you!
