About me
Hello!
I'm Andrew N. Vdovin, a freelance translator and native Russian speaker specializing in multiple translation areas. I'd be happy to offer you my services.

Areas of specialization:

Archaeology - Business - Cinema - Drumming - Education - Ethnography - Fiction - Games - General - Geography - History - Journalism - Linguistics - Literature - Marketing - Mysticism - Mythology - Paleontology - Philology - Popular Science - Rail Car Building - Railways - Religions - Self-Help - Tourism - TV -
Weapons & Armor - Web Localization - Zoology

However, my top 3 areas of expertise are as follows:

1) RAIL CAR BUILDING / RAIL WAGON BUILDING

5 years of translating experience at OAO Altaivagon, a large Russian rail car building company.
Rail car construction is what I know inside out.
"We encountered no one that excelled as much as Mr. Vdovin in his skill to accurately translate engineering and technical discussions" - Michael R. Williams, Senior Vice President of American Railcar Industries, Inc.
For more information, please see letter of reference.

2) VIDEO GAME LOCALIZATION

5 years of translating experience in game industry.
Gothic, Age of Conan, Atlantica Online, AIKA Online, Ether Saga, Minecraft, Battlefield, Letters from Nowhere are but a few game localization projects I took part in.

3) LITERATURE and FICTION

If you need your book translated into Russian, please feel free to contact me, and I'll offer you the best translation ever (no false modesty). Don't you want to become a well-known author in Russia? Just think of 140 million Russian readers - that's really something!
Moreover, once you have your book translated, I could help you get it published in Russia, since I have lasting relationships with many Russian publishers.

Besides, I sometimes write myself. In Russian, obviously. But I also intend to translate my own books from Russian into English - why not let the world know another good writer? :)
