About me
Translator by trade, I am a writer at heart (some of my writing can be read on my "Personal" page). Hence, I enjoy artistic/creative translations most of all -- literature, poetry, and any other field where language becomes more than just words.

In addition to literature, I provide outstanding translation services in the legal, marketing/advertising and business fields.

A special note on games. I have been an avid gamer since childhood (including competitive end gaming), but at this stage in my life, as a husband and father of three, I don't have a lot of time left for games. Luckily, I work in an industry where my love of games becomes an essential element in turning a pastime into a livelihood.

I have been working in the field on a regular basis for 5+ years, and I am approaching TWO MILLION words translated and edited for a dozen major game titles and countless casual/social games for iOS and Android. When it comes to games, I've seen it, I've played it, and I might have even translated it.

My daily output is generally in the area of 3000-4000 words, depending on the subject matter and complexity of the text.
