Ladies and gentlemen!
My name is Elias and I'm a professional interpreter, working with English- speaking visitors of Ukraine.
I offer you my assistance during the Ukrainian part of EURO 2012 – from meeting you in the airport and helping with the accomodation – to services of a guide, familiar in Kiev and other cities, and any other kind of assistance you can imagine.
What is the advantage of contacting me?
You see, although plenty of suggestions of private interpreter services can be found over the Internet, there’s a certain problem with most of the interpreters in this country I’ve seen in my life. I read an article in Kyivpost newspaper, which is a spot- on this problem. I quote: “Insufficient professional skills of local translators / interpreters may be explained by the following main reasons:
1. predominantly academic approach in foreign language learning at higher educational establishments of linguistic specialties;
2. general trend to combine pedagogical and translator education;
3. absence of any post- graduate training opportunities for translators/ interpreters.”
The difference is that English, Russian and Ukrainian are all my native languages. I didn't need any special education to learn English – it was spoken in my family and I started speaking fluently when I was a kid. Also, I've spent probably thousands of hours interpreting in my life, since 1999, here and while living in the US, with many people on many topics, so I've got some experience. That means, I won’t make mistakes and you won’t get into trouble. And the work of a guide and personal assistant excites me and I like it.
Feel free to contact me about your coming to Ukraine, and we can make all the needed preparations beforehand!
Wish you a good time in Ukraine!
