Polaris Translation provides a friendly, personal service. Here are a few background facts so you know who is working on your translation.

I have studied modern languages for fourteen years, gaining a BA (Hons) in Russian Studies at the University of Leeds in 2001. My second year was spent in the Centre for International Education at the Moscow State University. I studied a variety of subjects at Leeds giving me a thorough insight into Russian life, history and culture. In my fourth year I spent a study period in the Centre for Russian Language and Culture at the University of St Petersburg and focused my studies on translation.

In 2002 I was awarded an MA in Translation and Linguistics from the University of Westminster, an establishment noted for founding the first postgraduate translation course in the UK. At Westminster I studied Russian, Danish, Norwegian and Swedish Translation as well as technical writing, linguistics, science and technology. During my studies I translated Danish, Czech, Dutch and Russian texts for Linguists for Business Ltd.

I now work as a freelance translator concentrating on Russian and Scandinavian languages. Specialising in these languages has enabled me to gain greater insight into the cultural and social backgrounds of these countries - essential knowledge for any translator.
