I got my first degree at Minsk State Linguistic University (MSLU), where after 5 years of study I was certified as a translator/interpreter for two foreign languages (English and Italian) with a specialty in Public Relations (PR).
In 2009 I moved to Italy and enrolled at the University of Verona where I got my second degree in foreign languages (German, English and Italian) and specialized in international commerce.
In 2011 I was awarded a one-semester scholarship at the University of Richmond, VA, USA, where I got a chance to study German, English and Turkish. While an exchange-student, I also worked at the University’s Academic Skills Center as a tutor of Russian and Italian. Upon completion of that assignment, I received an official letter of recommendation with merit by Roger Mancastroppa.
I returned to Italy in 2012 and became a member of the Italian Association of Translators and Interpreters (AITI) in 2013.
In 2014 at the University of Verona I received a grant for teaching Russian and was hired as a short-term teaching assistant for Giovanna Siedina who is the current Russian instructor.
I had the opportunity to hire Maria, native from Belarus and living in Italy, for a very important 3 day trip in Ukraine to assist us in a series of meetings with our important customers in Kiev cluster: she prepared herself in advance to get acquainted with our specific business terminology and demonstrated to be very efficient both in consecutive and simultaneous translation.
Maria combines great skills as a business interpreter with adaptability and flexibility being at same time a nice person to discuss a variety of topics ranging from cultural matters to interpersonal observations. I highly recommend Maria for any professional interpreter job in Russian speaking countries.

Maria has proven to be an extremely reliable and talented translator. We have been working together regularly in remote sessions held over Zoom and not only is she fully equipped to deliver a great interpretation with excellent audio quality, but she is also very familiar with the platform itself, making everything run incredibly smoothly. She is now my go-to person whenever we require Russian translation and never fails to deliver high-quality translations on time, regardless of how flexible we need her to be. She has become a dear partner to our business and I highly recommend her services to anyone who needs it.
Paula Guisard, CEO, Intervoxis
We collaborated with Maria for the translation of commercial negotiations (also online due to COVID19) between an important Russian company and a large Italian supplier. Consequently, we turned to you again for the interpreting services of contractual negotiations, project meetings and for the translation of the technical and promotional documents of the same project. In addition to the quality of the translations and the great ownership of the technical language, I would like to underline the full correspondence to the standards of ethics, professionalism and presence in international business processes of the highest level. Excellent service, highly recommended!
