I created and coordinated international programs working with US, Ukrainian and Crimean government officials to implement cultural, educational and recreational curricula for students and training workshops for counsellors and educators. I managed the team of translators on such projects as translation From English into Russian of the materials for Early Childhood Development, Psychological Issues of Teenagers in Dysfunctional Families, Rehabilitation Process and Procedures for Juvenile Delinquents and Their Families.
As a Program Director for Global Action and Bridges of Faith I trained translators and interpreters for operational management of the non-profit organization with the foci on Social Rehabilitation, Medical Aid, Emotional Trauma Sensitivity and Cultural Awareness.
I helped to create international partnerships, translate into Russian and Ukrainian, and publish promotional and training materials to bring awareness of social issues related to underprivileged and special needs children and youth. It bridged communication between international organizations and brought outstanding results.
In Crimea many of my translation projects were of agricultural and commercial matter. I translated contracts, agreements, market assessments, manuals on agricultural machines and products, description of progressive technologies on how to grow, preserve and process fruits and vegetables for the Corporation’s partners in Europe and the USA.
I interpreted and helped to edit some translations for UN seminars and conferences in Crimea on such topics as Challenges and Prospects of Non-government Organizations in Post-Soviet Countries, Crimean Tartars’ Integration after Deportation. As I interpreted for the European Council delegations’ meetings with government officials in Crimea the discussions covered such topics as Education, Vocational Training, New Agricultural Trends and Food Industry.
