Bio
As a native English speaker with fluent Polish, I provide authentic and faithful Polish to English translations as well as proofreading and editing. A dual Canadian-Irish citizen, born and raised in Canada with ten years' experience teaching British English in Ireland, I am equally comfortable working with American and UK English. My services are ideally suited to clients who are seeking natural and idiomatic Polish to English translations.

I hold a state-issued certificate of proficiency in Polish (C2 in CERF) and I am a fully certified user of SDL Trados 2011. My translation experience extends back to late 2010; it has included texts in the areas of medicine, law, history, film, music, and poetry, across a wide range of styles and registers. I am always eager to broaden my experience.
