Events and training

I am a native Russian speaker, with English as my dominant language. I grew up in Russia but have lived in the UK since I was a teenager. I am also fluent in French.

I hold a Diploma in Translation from the Chartered Institute of Linguists, as well as a Postgraduate Diploma (Merit) in Creative Writing from the Manchester Metropolitan University.

I have been working as a translator and interpreter for 13 years, specialising in pharmaceutical and medical research, creative translation (trans-writing, copywriting, literary translation), and general translation. I believe that to be a good translator, one needs to be a good writer too. My short stories have been published online and in print, including a high commendation from the Manchester Fiction Prize 2017.
