Trainer Bio

Tanya Rozanes Olevsky - Since 2007 I have operated my own language studio, LinguaCom, providing translation and tutoring services to clients internationally. I have 15 years of experience as a translator and private tutor (before I started my own business, I worked with other service providers, translated and edited academic materials from scratch to publication, and taught English in various settings, both private and public). My first experience as a trainer was in 2015, when I was invited to teach a course of advanced proficiency in a translators training program in Lifshitz Academic College, Jerusalem. I was also a speaker on a ProZ Translator's Day Virtual Conference. I share my experience, tips and thoughts in a translation blog on my website: http://blog.lingua-com.com/. You are welcome to visit and take a part in the discussion by posting your comments and questions. I hold an MA in Special Education from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a BA in Psychology as well as a BA in Culture and Language Studies (English, French). I have a certificate in Technical Writing.
