Welcome to my site!
My name is Maria Karpliuk, I am professional guide-interpreter, philologist, translator and teacher of Spanish, English, German as well as travel agent. Since my childhood I dreamed of being translator, this profession attracted me much. I always admired those rare, talented translators with an excellent sense of humor and tact, they were the example for me to follow them. After all, the ability to not only translate in a right way, but also what is called "to read between the lines", to be a delicate psychologist and diplomat, is not given to everyone... In 2003 I graduated from the Kiev National Linguistic University, the Department of Spanish (where I studied English and German too), in 2004 I obtained a certificate of guide-interpreter at the courses of the State Tourism Administration of Ukraine and began to improve myself continuously, overcoming the unavoidable difficulties of life and gaining a valuable experience. This my long successful experience, numerous thankful comments from my tourists and clients, a work as an interpreter-assistant at the various events (press conferences, on the occasion of visits of the official delegations, sport competitions (including the Euro Cup of Football 2012), negotiations, presentations, exhibitions, private meetings), a work as a translator of the texts of diverse subjects and any level of complexity, as a guide-interpreter and organizer of my author's tours, the certain experience as a teacher, recognition of my colleagues and competitors, so all this gave me the idea of creating my own project.
