CV/Resume CV available upon request
I am a native speaker of both Russian and English, having lived, studied and worked both in Russia and the US.

My experience in different countries, industries and environments (finance, advertising, Internet, medicine / translation, interpreting, copywriting, editing, etc.) has given me the knowledge and intuition that are invaluable for conveying message and atmosphere accurately and well. My standard for a translation is that it must be perfectly idiomatic, fluid, elegant, and - if possible - better than the original.

My areas of specialization are: Finance/Business, Internet, Law, Medicine. My forte – Literary Translation.

The projects I've completed have ranged from translating and editing research and PR publications for financial services firms to interpreting at conferences and legal depositions, to translating tour brochures, catalogues for fine art exhibits, and song lyrics.

In my mind, considerations of quality supercede those of quantity. I can translate an average of 3 000 words a day, and possibly more, depending on the project at hand.

Samples of up to 200 words will be gladly translated for serious potential clients.
