The service provided by Olena was exceptional. The actual translation of our documents was very prompt and of high quality. Most importantly, she assigned to our documents helped guide us through the process of acquiring our first certified translation, and took the time to explain to us in laymen’s terms the steps involved.


“We must complement RADO Translations for their efficiency and professionalism. We have been very impressed by the ease with which they provided translator service to us and the excellent documentation provided.

We required a NAATI accredited Russian / Ukrainian / English translator to enable us to execute a Will of a person who died in Melbourne, Australia. The beneficiaries reside in Ukraine and Russia. In order to be able to distribute the gifts pursuant to the provisions of the will, we needed translations of Passports, Death certificates, Marriage certificates, Birth certificates, Bank account details, Bank documents confirming the account number belongs to the beneficiary.

Your translations were most efficient, professional, prompt and reasonably priced. The exchange of scanned documents by email was quick and efficient and the final hard copy well presented.

We would not hesitate to work with you again and also to recommend RADO Translations services to others.”

“I am a repeat customer. I would highly recommend Olena to everyone. Most professional and reliable translator. Olena is very knowledgeable and caring, and will always help with extra information and advice. The job is done quickly and translations are always presented to the highest standards.”


“Having struggled many months to find a Ukrainian tutor I stumbled across an advert on the Internet for Ukrainian language tutoring.

Once I had contacted Olena via email, I could tell that she was very enthusiastic about teaching and decided to have a lesson.

My knowledge of Ukrainian was very little only a few words and limited knowledge of the alphabet.

Now after a couple of months of lessons Olena has given me huge confidence in learning Ukrainian. I am now confident in writing sentences, reading and speaking. Olena also gives me assignments, which keep me learning and always is trying new methods and techniques to find the best way that I learn, always taking care not to overload me with work but helping me to progress further.

I always look forward to my lessons knowing that I will progress each time with a fun and knowledgeable lesson.”


“Olena’s work with us involved translation of different types of documents, like certificates, diplomas, power of attorney material, letters and e-mails. Her clients are satisfied with her translation and we can testify that she does her job with diligence, accuracy and a professional attitude.”

Perfect translation of documentation.”


Oлена помогала нам с переводом и официальным заверением нескольких важных документов. Вся работа была выполнена ей в кратчайший срок и на очень высоком уровне. С большой уверенностью могу рекомендовать Олену, как профессионала высокого класса, что не мешает ей подходить к решению поставленных задач индивидуально и с душой.


“Olena was my language teacher. I needed a tutor with the highest skills and qualification of Ukrainian and Russian (and also English) languages. Besides language tuition, she made presentations on the political, economic, cultural, geographical and other situations of Ukraine. Since I arrived in Kyiv and started my work as the Deputy Head of Mission of the Embassy of Japan in Ukraine and Moldova, I realized how accurate and insightful her tuitions were.”

Olena was contracted by the International Consultants Centre to deliver a cultural briefing for an Australian professional and his family. The briefing was delivered with good preparation, insight and client focus and included input on Russian and Ukrainian language.

Jane Hayman,

“Olena was professional in every sense and worked tirelessly during the seminar program interpreting presentations perfectly for all individual speakers and during bilateral discussions between members of the delegation and senior members of the Law School.

This comprised approximately five hours of solid interpreting which was an incredible task, but one that Olena undertook admirably.

She undertook considerable preparation within a very tight deadline to ensure she fully briefed about the program and was well-prepared for all eventualities in presentations and discussions.”
