I am a native speaker of Russian, though I have also spoken Ukrainian for many years fluently and have read all of the main literary pieces--poetry and prose.
I have also lived for over fourteen years in the United Stated where I graduated high school and graduated from University of Texas at Austin with Highest Honors in two majors: 1. Linguistics 2. Russian, Eastern European, and Eurasian Studies with a GPA of 4.00.
I've been mostly translating media sources. Since TV programs and newspaper articles deal with a great variety of topics, I have had a chance of translating texts of various contents, though chiefly dealing with current events, politics, social issues, linguistics, etc.
While in Odessa, Ukraine I had various translation jobs. These were mainly orders from international students--mostly from India--dealing with the medical field, though my strongest field is translating newspaper articles. Since then I have been translating various media sources as well as instruction manuals for organizations in Ukraine, Russia, and the US.
I have to point out that I have been living continuously for fourteen years in the United States where I have acquired fluency in colloquial English as well as various other styles.
As for my native language, which is Russian, I am experienced and fluent in it as any native speaker would be. I constantly update my knowledge of contemporary usage of the Russian language via literature, press, the internet, as well as by traveling.
I am also a speaker of Ukrainian and I am able to translate to and from it as well. I have received my education in both Russian and Ukrainian while living in Ukraine. Hence my knowledge of Ukrainian is almost as good as that of Russian. I review Ukrainian press and other media sources on constant basis to update my knowledge of contemporary usage of Ukrainian, and improve my Ukrainian lexicon.

My knowledge of other languages include:

Intermediate Level: Spanish, Hebrew
Beginner's Level: Arabic, Polish, French
Not Spoken Languages: Latin, Old Church Slavonic, Biblical Hebrew, Aramaic
