“Never trust the translation or interpretation of something without first trusting its interpreter.”

But in this post I would like to tell you about a Ukrainian translator you can trust and feel confident.
There are so many English to Ukrainian translators on the web offering their services. But it is, indeed, very difficult to find the best one. I had to search for the best Ukrainian translator for nearly two months, until I found the one who, I can trust and feel confident about.
My anscestors come from Ukraine. I am really crazy about Ukrainian culture and traditions. On top of that I even started to learn Ukrainian and took a few lessons on skype!
But still I do not have enough knowledge and skills to understand old documents to restore my family tree.
So I started to search for a reliable Ukrainian translator. I was on the major resources where freelance translators register as a rule — fiverr.com, proz.com. I even hired one translator to translate birth and death certificates from Ukrainian into English. But, that was a very unpleasant experience — I received a Google translation of the birth certificate into my inbox. And it cost me 50 usd.
It was a big frustration for me, as I used to trust people. I tried to get in touch with this translator, but unfortunately he just ignored me.
Luckily, I did manage to find someone special to translate my documents through Facebook — Hanna Sles, though she presents herself as the Best Russian Translator there, but in fact, she is also a Ukrainian translator. It turns out she comes from Ukraine, her native languages are Russian and Ukrainian.
I am so happy with her services. She took every detail into consideration and when there was something unclear, she always contacted me to clarify.
For many years she has been working for translation comapnies and agencies. Today she is trying to establish her own business. I would highly recommend her Ukrainian translation services. This summer she has got some special rates for English to Ukrainian translation, so make sure to translate your English to Ukrainian documents at fair rates!
