Bio
Currently I do not provide translation services.
Poker and sports betting website translations

As a regular poker player, I understand exactly what 'implied odds,' 'pot commitment,' 'fold equity,' 'gap concept' and many other strange terms mean. I not only know what ICM and SAGE are, I also use those poker concepts during my everyday play. Having read and re-read lots of books about poker both in English and Russian, I know the game inside out, which helps me produce superior poker translations. I prefer playing Texas Holdem but I'm also proficient with most other types of poker – Five Card, Seven Card Stud, Omaha, Razz, Lowball, Draw, etc.
Military-related translations
I have extensive military experience:
  • 18 years in military service;
  • 1 year interpreting for the Ukrainian military contingent of the United Nations Mission in Sierra-Leone;
  • 1 year of studying in the Baltic Defence College (NATO education system);
  • Attended a number of courses including two courses at the Pearson Peacekeeping Centre, Canada, and United Nations Military Observer Course at the National Defence Academy of Ukraine;
  • Took part in a number of national and international military exercises, including Ukrainian – Polish – British military exercise "Cossack Steppe - 2003" (Ukraine) and international military exercise “SWEDEX-2006” (Sweden).
