About

Objective

From my childhood I liked to discover something new every day – new knowledges, new places, new languages, new impressions …

Thinking about choosing a future profession, I wanted to combine everything that I like and was interesting in it.
But not everything is so simple in the profession of an interpreter, as it may seem at first sight.
It is necessary not only to knoe a foreign language at a high level, but also to have a quick reaction, smartness and resourcefulness.

A good interpreter must possess not only a large vocabulary, good knowledge of grammar, stylistics and excellent memory, in my opinion, he/she must also combine qualities such as empathy, communication skills, a high level of responsibility, attention to details and helpfulness.

The most important is that, despite all the difficulties, I get a lot of pleasure doing my favorite job, because as Confucius said:

“Choose a job for yourself, and you will not have to work a single day in your life”

We have been working with Maria for two years via the Internet. I send documents for immigrants from Ukraine for the verification and translation. She helps explaining what documents are needed to obtain a residence permit, confirmation of a diploma, obtaining a driving license, buying and selling apartments. So we continue our collaboration!

My name is Pavel, I’m a web-developer. In the course of my work it is often necessary to create sites in English. Since my knowledge of the language is basic, I always refer to Masha for help. The site is the face of the company, so it is very important that the text component is literate and spelling correct. Thanks again!

Pavel Chorniy

I really love bodybuilding, follow competitions in many countries and often go and visit personally to find promising young athletes for coaching in the US and appear at competitions of a higher level. Friends from the city of Dnipro invited me to an open championship and were waiting for me in Ukraine. I could not miss such an event. But, as I flew alone, and flew to Kiev, I needed help and assistance. Mariia met me in Borispol, from where we went to the railway station, and then – to the Dnipro. She was with me all the time, helped with housing, translated the course of the event, helped in a conversation with the athletes. I`m very grateful. The trip was very comfortable, successful and effective.

Maria was recommended to me by a colleague who saw her at work. In February I received an email that a friend of mine in Kiev in her stables had a foal, which could be very interesting to me and I had to fly to Kiev immediately. Since there was no familiar interpreter, I phoned Mariia, hoping that she would be free. For two days I was organized a transfer from the airport and found the apartment according to all my requirements. But most importantly, we bought a foal. Mariia helped to prepare translations of all necessary documents, veterinary certificates, assured the translations in the notary office. Everything was organized perfectly, I do recommend.

I really love traveling and I’m interested in Eastern Europe, I was in Moscow, in Minsk, in St. Petersburg, and last year I decided to visit Lviv and Kiev. Mariia helped to organize housing, hired a car, prepared a very interesting excursion around Kiev . I was really impressed by Pirogovo museum, we have nothing even similar in Ohio. Masha, thank you, I will recommend to friends, I felt like home)
