About me

Hello, dear visitor! Let me introduce myself.

I'm an established translator, specializing in IT, telecom and marketing. My professional experience totals 9 years and the list of my customers is ever-growing. If you've got a project at hand, feel free to contact me. I treat each client as major, no matter how small or big it actually is. You may count on my skills and professional attitude at all times.

Currently, I do plenty of high-profile IT and marketing translations, plus finance and general for some variety. In the last few years I've greatly improved my writing style and translation abilities and feel on top of the game at the moment. Do not hesitate to contact me with any assignments you might have! If it doesn’t fit my specialization, there is still hope :) Having mastered the fine art of networking, I always have a good colleague or two, who may lend a helping hand. I truly enjoy complex tasks and subtle word play, which makes a good marketing material shine.

I've got a few short samples in the section above, but there is more! If you’d like to witness my translation prowess, please visit I've got a few good pieces for you: Joanne Rowling and James Joyce, Marion Coutts and Jackie Kay (and Tolkien!). Should you be interested in excellent writing style, pay attention to my short stories in Russian. And the last, but not least – I won the translation contest here at dubbed "Tomatina revolution". This particular piece may not be revolutionary, but it clearly makes me stand out of the crowd.

Want some extra detalis? I bet you do! Just download my CV and dig deep into my achievements. [construction underway, CV temporarily removed]

Hope you liked my short introduction and feel ready for the mutually beneficial and enjoyable collaboration!


Staying true to the main area of expertise, which is IT and telecommunications, I’m actively searching for good opportunities to demonstrate my skills as a proficient marketing translator.
