Ukraine DCFTA Job Resources

This page primarily aims to provide resources for Ukrainian citizens seeking jobs with international companies and organizations. There are also sections to help with general job searching, items of interest for English-speaking expats, along with other job-related tips and articles. One final section concerns dealing with language diversity which will become an increasingly pronounced issue for the ten years following DCFTA implementation in January of 2016.

Language Diversity and Overcoming the Language Barrier

Free software translation services like Google Translate have improved considerably over the years.  It’s great for text, and with a little tweaking it can be used in conjunction with speech and voice recognition systems.  Skype is on the verge of publicly introducing its own real-time voice translation software.  If this is something of interest to you, I would recommend for you to register for a trial use.
