Apart from being a Russian linguist with an interest in politics and current affairs, I am a qualified computer programmer, website designer and keen musician.

Quotes from clients:

I forgot to pass on the proof-reader's comments that the quality of the translation 'was absolutely excellent'. Of course, this does not come as a surprise, but I like to pass on praise where it's due. (14,000 word legal translation)

Thanks for this beautiful re-creation! (Translation of song lyrics)

Thank you very much for your great translation. (Translation of poem)

Your translation has been beautifully done, many thanks for that. (Translation of GOST standard)
