Although my interest and experience in translation goes back to my early days of Russian language study as an undergraduate in 1999-2001, I began working professionally as a translator in late 2004 shortly after accepting a position at the Moscow office of The PBN Company, a strategic communications consultancy headquartered in Washington, DC.
