Professional practices Vladimir Vaguine endorses's Professional Guidelines.
Certified translator with more than 30-year experience of in-house and freelance work in various fields. Although I can translate from Russian both to French and English when needed, I don't want to deprive French and English native speakers of their daily bread :-), that's why I prefer translating into my native language only, providing high-quality texts in a plain Russian.
