Marcin was born in the lovely city of Kraków, spent most of this childhood in Germany, then worked abroad, before settling back in Poland. After studying law at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, he felt drawn towards the language professions of his family. His grandfather had served as a translator in Korea in the Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission and his mother followed in her father’s footsteps. It was she who encouraged Marcin to become a conference interpreter. He now has EU accreditation and – like all Calliope members – is a member of the International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC).
Ever the goal setter
While in high demand at the European Union and elsewhere, and enjoying the stimulation which comes from preparing for conferences in new fields of activity, these achievements were not enough for Marcin. He decided to hone his organisational skills by becoming a consultant interpreter and equipment supplier. And when Marcin sets himself a goal, he achieves it. He now has an impressive portfolio of clients including WWF Poland, the UNICEF Refugee Response in Poland, the National School of Public Administration and the City of Kraków.
In his own words
When we asked Marcin why he turned to conference organisation, he answered: “Working as a consultant interpreter gives me immense satisfaction. I really enjoy giving clients the feeling that they will get full support from me, that I will offer them several solutions based on my knowledge and experience and together we will choose the one that is best suited to their needs. Joining Calliope Interpreters is a new high point in my career.” And, as he points out, the work of interpreters is intensive, requiring availability, travel and, in recent years, a rapid switch between on-site, remote and hybrid work. In doing so, it is essential to maintain a balance between work and family life. Sometimes this is quite a challenge, but fortunately Marcin can count on the support of his wife and increasingly his three growing sons.
Marcin brings with him local knowledge of the Eastern European market and a wealth of experience: assets which will further enhance the breadth and depth of the service our clients have come to expect from Calliope Interpreters.
