Professional practices Andrei Mazurin endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
Trained at Moscow Linguistic University (alias Moscow Maurice Thorez Institute of Foreign Languages) which is Russia's top school of language professionals, I have 25+ years' hands-on experience in providing English-Russian translation services.

I have worked for governments, TNCs, financial institutions, multiple FT 500 and Chambers Global companies, NGOs and a host of international translation agencies. I have successfully handled translation jobs of all sizes, including those with extremely large word counts and tight deadlines. My daily output is up to 10,000 words.

I am expert in business, financial and legal translations and, more specifically, antitrust and regulatory matters, banking and finance, capital markets and securities, corporate transactions and joint ventures, employment, international arbitration, M&A, private equity, structured finance, securitizations, and taxes.

My strengths include ability to work under pressure, meet deadlines, ensure neatness of work produced, exhibit creativity in solving problems, stay with projects and tasks until they are accomplished, and collaborate effectively with clients, coupled with fast touch typing skills and attention to detail.
