About Me

Over 20 years as a Ru-En freelance translator for a large number of organisations ranging from translation agencies and premiership football clubs to the BBC, law firms and publishing houses.
My wife is Russian and our home environment is completely bilingual. We spend at least 2-3 months a year in Russia.

Legal: Extensive legal translations for law firms and agencies on high profile cases in the U.K. (sometimes running over several years). These included RF legislation, cross-border litigation, court rulings, transcripts and records, witness statements, expert opinions, police reports, terms and conditions, calls for tender, contracts and numerous and varied company documents. I can provide ITI certified translations and I work closely with a local notary for clients requiring certified translations in the U.K.

Commerce: Translation and transcreation of promotional, marketing, technical, financial and advertising materials for a wide range of industries ranging from energy and metallurgy to tourism and retail. Documents ranging from financial reports and prospectuses to shareholders' meetings and company listings.

Journalism: Translation of articles for weekly digest on Russian news. Regular translation of articles for human rights website and organisations. English language editor of magazine on Caspian region.

Literature, Film, T.V., radio and the arts: I have translated large scale literary works and films as well as audio and archive materials. See my portfolio above for examples of my work .

Proofreading/Editing: I provide regular proofreading and editing services in my fields of expertise to agencies and direct clients alike.
