I am a full time Russian to English Translator & Interpreter located in Edinburgh, Scotland.

I am a member of the UK Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIoL) and holder of a Diploma in Translation from Russian to English specialising in Law and Business.

The years that I have spent working for Market Research and Consulting companies that deal with the Russian market have given me experience of translating texts from a wide range of industries - from FMCG product descriptions to oil and gas contracts.

I have also worked as an in-house full time translator for an international exhibition company, where I translated marketing texts, press releases and websites from Russian into English for all of their offices in the CIS.

Alongside my legal translation work, I am currently working on several Russian online games as a freelance translator and editor, which is something I particularly enjoy due to my passion for computer gaming.

I always thoroughly proofread any work that I carry out and make my clients aware of any issues that arise. I value my reputation and set very high standards for myself, so I will always tell the client if something is outside my field of expertise rather than provide them with a substandard translation.

Whether you need a literal translation of technical or contractual documentation, or the translation of prose and poetry I can come back to you with a quote in the space of an hour.
