My name is Pavel Kolobkov. I’m 42, and I live in Berlin. Originally I’m from the former Soviet Union.

What do you do for a living?

I’ve been a certified translator and interpreter for 15 years. I can speak German, Russian and English. As an interpreter, I work at big conferences and presentations.

What does globalization mean to you?

The world has got smaller and people are looking to communicate with each other. But not everyone knows every language. There’s a need for translators and interpreters so I benefit from that of course.

I also like the freedom to travel. I can go anywhere in the world. I can go anywhere.

What’s your favorite food?

Where I came from, a hundred nationalities lived together and of course ate together. I got used to the variety, so here in Germany, I also like to eat international cuisine: Chinese, Italian, Greek.

What country would you like to visit?

China. It’s a huge country. And the people there are really different. They have a different mentality. I’d really love to go there.

What do you expect for your future?

Lucrative contracts.
