Bio
Sworn interpreter and certified translator for German Courts
Beim Landgericht Berlin allgemein beeidigte Dolmetscherin und ermächtigte Übersetzerin für Russisch, Englisch und Deutsch



Due to my trilingual personal background I have a first-hand in-depth knowledge of the respective cultures, administrative and legal environments, current affairs and discourse, customs, norms and idiosyncrasies prevalent in the "home" countries of my working languages (Russia, Great Britain and Germany). This enables me to produce fluent and coherent translations that read like originals.

In my capacity as a certified translator and sworn interpreter I produce translations that meet the official requirements of German and other states' authorities, including Russia and the post-Soviet republics.

Further personal information is available upon request, including my details in the German Database of Interpreters and Translators of the justice departments of federal state authorities (Dolmetscher- und Übersetzerdatenbank der Landesjustizverwaltungen).

some recent PM and client references:

* "Ich bin immer wieder erstaunt, wie schnell Sie arbeiten. Vielen Dank für die schnelle und unkomplizierte Bearbeitung. Der Kunde hat seine Dokumente bereits und ist happy."
(I keep being amazed at how fast you work. Thank you very much for the swift and smooth processing. The client has his documents already and is happy)

* "Vielen Dank für die Übersetzung. Mir gefällt besonders Ihre idiomatische Übersetzungsweise, bei welcher man nicht merkt, dass der Text, wie bei dem vorigen auch, übersetzt ist, sondern annimmt er sei im Russischen verfasst worden. Sehr schön!"
(Thank you very much for the translation. I especially like your idiomatic manner of translation, when one doesn't notice that the text - same as the last time - has been translated, but assumes it's been composed in Russian. Great!)
