About me
I am a UK-based professional Russian to English business document translator, and a native speaker - and teacher - of English. I was an international tax and transfer pricing specialist for 22 years, working for the UK tax authority and the consulting firm Deloitte. My tax experience covers both inter-governmental business and projects for clients operating in a wide range of industry sectors. I now specialise in Russian to English business translation. My long international tax and transfer pricing experience has equipped me to offer services in the following fields:

Business and commerce
Law (contracts and general)

I also have a lifelong interest in music and songwriting, and I translate song lyrics in a manner that preserves both ryhmes and scansion, while adhering to the principles of professional translation.

I have passed two parts of the three-part Chartered Institute of Linguists Diploma in Translation: General (passed with Distinction) and Business (passed with Merit).

I have a Class 2.1 degree in Classics from Corpus Christi College Cambridge, the core elements of which were literature, history, and translation.

To support my translation business, and to ensure that my language skills are constantly improving, I immerse myself in reading, studying, speaking and listening to Russian. I have a network of friends and associates in Russia who support me in this, and in my business.
