About me
NATIVE RUSSIAN TRANSLATOR with CREATIVE APPROACH



In the past I worked both as an in-house translator and founder and manager of my own agency, before I set up my own freelance business.

I chose to specialize in marketing translations — the most creative type of translation after literary prose.

Since 2008 I've been translating contents for hotel websites, texts for TV ads voice-over, articles on luxury goods for major European and American translation agencies and such brands as Fairmont Raffles Hotels International, Johnson & Johnson and Ferrari to name a few.
