Professional experience:

Language training:
I have provided language trainings for both individual and corporate clients at various levels of language proficiency (from “absolute beginner” to “advanced”). I teach young children, adolescents and adults.

Translation/interpretation:
I gained my first professional experience while working for the company Smarttech Sp. z o.o., where I performed mostly technical translations, e.g. instruction manuals, software localization, etc. After that I became an in-house translator for Kulikowska & Kulikowski patent attorneys. I translated mostly legal documents, such as patent certificates, assignment deeds, company incorporation certificates, notarial deeds, legal opinions and many more. In 2011, I earned accreditation in translation and started translation traineeship at the Council of the European Union in Brussels.
