Sylwia graduated from the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, Poland, and majored both in Biology (MSc in 1993) and in English Studies (MA in 1996). She also studied at Trinity College Dublin (Botany, 1990-1991) and at the Central European University in Budapest (Environmental Sciences and Policy, 1994). She has worked as a freelance translator and editor of biological texts for nearly 20 years, and writes articles on scientific translation and communication.
In 2009 Sylwia became a member of the EASE Council and started to edit the EASE Guidelines for Authors and Translators of Scientific Articles. Her initiative has proved to be successful, as the 2011 edition of the guidelines is already available in 20 languages. Sylwia is also a member of the Anniversary Committee and would like to continue her work on the EASE Author Guidelines in the next triennium.
