About me
As a formally trained translator and a lifelong language enthusiast, I have attained a high level of linguistic expertise. With over ten years of experience as a translator, I have translated, edited, and proofread hundreds of thousands of words from English, French, and Italian into Russian in the following fields:

Medical and Environmental: conference papers, journal publications, and abstracts

Software and Linguistic testing: user interface testing, resource files, graphics tags and strings, help files, read me files and license agreements

Legal: patents, contracts, agreements, and statutes

Film and Video: subtitles from scripts and audio, and official website content for entertainment and business

Non-profit: charity, humanitarian aid and rehabilitation support materials

Business and Marketing advertising materials, surveys, financial statements, annual reports, memoranda, and presentations

Technical manufacturing specifications and user manuals to accompany
professional and consumer equipment and tools.

In May 2010 I successfully passed the United Nations Competitive Examination for Russian language translators and was placed on the roster of qualified translators for the UN.

In working with me, you will enjoy receiving highest quality translations, always on time. I promise you prompt and friendly communications.

Thank you for your interest!
