My experience in translation started in 1993, when I joined an international students' organization and became a free interpreter there. After a few months I knew that interpreting is what I want to do, what I love to do, what I'm talented in. Since then I've done a lot of oral and written translation, and I still love it :)
I'm working full time as a translator now in a construction company, but there is still time left for extra written jobs, so you can rely on me in English/Russian, Russian/English translation of documents related to construction, construction equipment, materials, etc., construction contracts and such, or general knowledge topics.
My work costs 15-25 USD per hour and 5-9 USD per page depending on the complexity (1800 digits), urgent jobs (more than 7 pages a day) are 50% extra.
