About me
I'm a native Russian, 15-year full-time translation experience in law, business, media, and promotion documents. I have university degrees in translation, journalism, and marketing (St. Petersburg State University, Russia). I have completed 155 projects or 3.7 million words in the last three years. See, I am really passionate about translation!

- Legal translation – Comparative Law
When translating legal documents from English into Russian or vice versa, keep in mind that you are dealing with different legal systems, i.e. English law vs. Continental law. There are some fundamental differences in terms and concepts, e.g. title or trust. From my practice, I know how to bring the parties together to avoid misunderstanding. I am interested in comparative law. I make professional, exact, and precise translations. Your text will hit the target whether you address a legal or non-legal audience and boost your reputation.

- Economy/Business
I enjoy translating business and economic texts. I translated papers for Harvard Business School and articles for Thompson Reuters. I will do a preliminary research and check the terminology and background, be it venture capital or economic review

- ICO, Blockchain – Great Ideas
To me, Bitcoin is more than just mining or generating profit. It's a new thinking that opens up the whole new universe. I am excited to venture into it when I translate or transcreate blockchain-related texts. They give me first-hand insights into the world of decentralized technology. I follow the news and trends. I have translated several whitepapers for Swarm Fund and PressCoin. This is a really exciting job to do at the intersection of finance, logic, psychology, and philosophy.

- Marketing – SEO
Do you need to reach out and win the Russian audience you need? Are you interested in tapping or expanding into the Russian market? Whatever you go for, I am here to help you to make your message relevant to the Russian culture. Reach out and grab your audience and speak their language. Win new leads and add loyal customers.

With a passion for words, I focus on your needs be they winning and retaining clients, attracting audiences, or seeking understanding and support and I proofread to see the text through readers' eyes so that you have their best feedback.

I always try to imagine myself as a reader on the one hand and an author and/or client on the other hand. I'm the only person here who can reasonably do both things. I can write the translation as the author and then read it as a reader. My job is to make the ends meet. I know author's thinking and I know reader's perception. I bring them together.

Do not hesitate to contact me anytime with any questions.
