About me

For a free quote please contact me via my Proz.com profile!

I have been working for more than 12 years as a translator/interpreter in Russia, Scandinavia, and Australia. I started translating academic articles back in 2003 while working at one of the Russian Universities. Later I gained experience in translating marketing, legal, health care and educational documents.

I have a solid academic background holding a PhD in Linguistics.

Areas of expertise:
• International organisations, government and politics (thousands of translated and edited pages for various UN, EU, Australian institutions)
• Legal (agreements, sale and purchase contracts, court rulings, service contracts, employment contracts, lease agreements, treaties, powers of attorney, wills, etc.)
• Health care and dentistry (trained nursing aid)
• Education (leaflets and webpages for Universities and schools, diplomas, educational certificates etc.)
• Marketing (translations for famous cognac, wine brands, retailers, Universities, city councils and counting!)
• Games and apps translation and localisation (specialising in educational games and apps and online casino)

I live and work in Brisbane, Queensland which is an advantage if you want to place an overnight project without paying extra fees.

I am a NAATI accredited translator (English into Russian), and a NAATI recognzed translator (Ukrainian into English). NAATI number 66987. I am also a professional member of the Australian Institute of Interpreters and Translators.

Excellent knowledge of my native language, Russian, and my second language, English, helps me to accomplish very difficlut translations. As a translator living in an English speaking country and dealing with English on a daily basis, I can guarantee a 100% understanding of the English texts. I keep my Russian up to date by watching Russian movies, actively participating in the life of the local Russian and Ukrainian communities and promoting Russian language and culture to ensure that my clients will receive the best translations ever!
Danish is my home language - I am fully immersed into the Scandinavian cuture (movies, newspapers, cultural events, trips to Denmark and Sweden).

Apart from being a professional translator, I also run workshops and webinars for translators and interpreters. I am proud to be a Proz.com trainer. I am also interested in language and linguistics in general and in my spare time I conduct a research on a category of politeness.
