I graduated with MA in International Relations in 2003 (honors). After graduation I worked for 3 years as a translator and then chief translator for a large manufacturing company, part of the Sukhoi group. After that I have found that self-employment was a more fitting career for me and switched to full-time freelance work. As a freelancer I specialize in translation, localization, LQA, PR and SMM consulting.

Currently I work with a number of direct customers and some of the best translation agencies in the world where I am involved in projects for top international IT and engineering brands. Over the years I have gained deep knowledge and vast experience in IT and marketing-focused translation and transcreation.

I also run a small marketing consultancy helping international IT companies and startups launch their products in Russia and gain visibility in Russian press, blogosphere and social media.

I am always open to proposals from new customers so contact me by email, Skype (s_gladkova) or phone (+7 913 911 3550) to discuss how I can help you with your next Russian project.
