I mainly translate from Russian and Ukrainian to English. I've worked as a freelance translator primarily for market research firms, translating commercial products and television commercials. I've also translated newspaper and magazine articles from Russian and Ukrainian to English. I can interpret from English to Ukrainian on request as well. My background is graduate study in Slavic Languages and Literatures, in which I received a PhD degree in 2000. Not finding work teaching in the field of Slavic Studies, I taught English as a Second Language and Composition for over five years, so I am familiar with the grammar, usage, and mechanics of English, so I can edit and proofread texts as well. Presently I work in the field of educational testing and continue to do freelance translation work, mainly for one market research firm, Gio (Dollens & Associates, a company based in Chicago), and for other companies that contact me on occasion. For a copy of my resume and references, please contact me.
