About me
перевод как вседа великолепный/your translation, as ever, was magnificent My knowledge of Russian springs from a passion for the language.

I was lucky enough to be able to start studying Russian in my early teens, enabling me to lay a solid and secure foundation for degree and post-graduate studies. My passion for the language was the impetus behind my two periods of residence in Russia: five months in Rostov on Don as assistant professor of English at Rostov University in 1991, and 2 ½ years in Moscow 1998-2001 working for Aon Insurance Brokers. Living in Russia among the Russians through these two post-crisis periods has given me a unique insight into the culture. These periods of residence, continued contact with my Russian friends and regular travel to the post-Soviet region has helped me to maintain my near native fluency in spoken Russian.

My freelance translation experience has covered a broad scope of topics.

From commercial, insurance, criminal and personal legal issues in various jurisdictions to web, brochure and magazine content for products as varied as the steel industry, luxury jewellery, street sweeping machines, operatic and ballet productions, leather goods, photographic art books, legal services, fireplaces, outsourced HR and accounting services and exhibition centres. Other material translated includes general correspondence, birth/marriage/divorce and death certificates, and IT systems tender documentation.

My other passion in life is music.

I am actively involved in music-making locally, and it has been my pleasure to meet and work with Russian musicians from the classical, jazz, folk and rock circuits. I particularly relish the challenge of translating song lyrics.
