About me
I am retired, married, and live in Reno, Nevada (USA). All the years of my higher education and several years of my career were spent learning, teaching or translating foreign languages. For 16 years during the period from 1976 to 2008 I translated for the U.S. Government from Russian, German, Spanish and Georgian into English. I remain fascinated by the translation process that I find to be akin to playing music, programming computers or solving puzzles, and as an experienced translator and native speaker of English, I take pride in coming up with just the right equivalents in English to express the meaning contained in the foreign language source. Experienced customers of translators know that the best English language renderings are produced by experienced translators who are native speakers of English.
