Professional practices Yelena Pestereva endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).

I am a native speaker of Russian living in Moscow. I have a Master's degree cum laude and a PhD degree in economics from Lomonosov Moscow State University (one of the top 5 Russian universities) as well as experience of work in the field as a college lecturer, senior researcher at a research institute and head of the reporting department at a bank. I also worked as an in-house translator and editor for several newspapers and magazines (including "Economics and Life" and "Business-Week-Russia"). Since 2003 I am a full-time freelance translator and editor specializing in law and finance. In 2006 I joined the Union of Translators of Russia. I am also a Certified PRO freelancer since 2008. My best result in Kudoz achieved when I was playing this game on a regular basis :)) was the "title" of the all-time leader in Law (Contracts), Finance (General), Business/Commerce, Economics, Investment/Securities and Real Estate.

I began my career as a freelance translator from translating books for 5 Moscow leading publishing houses. I have translated about 30 books mostly on economics and finance, but also on human resources, law and psychology. I am happy to have been able to translate into Russian several famous financial textbooks, including:

·       Atrill, Peter
& McLaney, Eddie, "Accounting and Finance for


DePamphilis, Donald, "Mergers, Acquisitions, and Other


Natenberg, Sheldon, "Options Volatility and Pricing",
Hayre, Lakhbir
"Salomon Smith Barney Guide to Mortgage-Backed and Asset-backed

Vander Wielen, Lex and others, "International
Cash Management"

Fraser-Sampson, Guy, "Private Equity as an Asset Class"

Currently I offer translation and
editing of all kinds of contracts (including facility agreements and share
purchase agreements), court materials, financial statements, memoranda,
articles of association, bylaws, IPO prospects, investment offers, company
brochures, presentations, case studies, codes of business conduct, risk
management reports, internal policies, business correspondence, and other
promotional, financial and legal materials and documents.

My large clients include Crédit Suisse,
Schroders, Lombard Odier, Julius Baer, ABN AMRO, Citibank, JP Morgan, BNP
Paribas (Suisse), Deutsche Bank, Barclays Capital, ING Bank N.V., The Bank of
New York Mellon, Linklaters, Clifford Chance, Google,
Canon, American Express, Bloomberg, Kraft Foods.

I also translate and edit for UN agencies (UNFPA,
UNEP, UNAIDS UNDP etc.) on a regular basis as well as for different Forex
brokers. I have translated site materials for Opteck, ExpertOption, Forex4you
and Trade24.
