Olga Haznaci is one of wintranslation’s stellar Project Managers. Olga first started working with wintranslation on a freelance basis. Soon after, she was hired as our marketing coordinator. Coming from a Ukrainian-based translation agency, as well as co-owning a Turkish translation agency, she brought many new contacts to the team and, with her many talents, she has helped shape our approach to project management.
Her natural curiosity coupled with ample work opportunities have helped her develop her many professional attributes in her career. From starting as a complete beginner on Indigenous languages and their dialects, she has developed significant expertise and knowledge in this area, for example in helping our team ensure our work meets Inuktitut language standards. Her prior work experience in the translation industry, the business contacts she has accumulated, and her excellent interpersonal communication skills helped facilitate Olga’s transition to becoming efficient and effective at project management. She naturally fell into this leadership role.
Today, Olga works at wintranslation as a Project Manager. Her work at wintranslation has honed her knowledge of the Canadian work environment, government procurement, and Indigenous history in Canada. Her detail oriented, personable approach continues to contribute to a successful workplace environment which benefits the whole team, as well as our clients.
“ The work here at wintranslation has been very rewarding. Every client is unique and comes with it’s own project and a challenge. Every translator is unique and adds their own story. Helping find solutions, bringing together a team to work on a project, learning new things about our society, its complexity from different perspectives. Those are the things I value the most. Working at wintranslation has helped me become a better communicator, planner, and has showed me the importance of open conversation when working in a diverse environment. “
