Dear client,

Thank you for visiting my profile! I am a professional freelance translator of Russian to English based in Canada. I am a native speaker of English who also offers editing and proofreading services.

I am currently seeking freelance work with translation agencies, direct clients and collaboration with any relevant translation teams or individuals.

My education includes an Advanced Degree in Economics and Russian Studies from the University of Manitoba, study as part of a Master's program in World Economics in St. Petersburg, Russia and a Certificate in Interpreting from the International Centre of Winnipeg. My experience of living and studying in Russia for a number of years allowed me to become fluent in Russian and become familiar with Russian culture and society.

Due to my university education, previous work experience and personal interests, my primary specialization is in Economics and Business and additional specializations are in my secondary fields of marketing, tourism (brochures and pamphlets), the beauty and cosmetics industry (makeup, hair products and salon services), culinary arts (food descriptions, menus and recipes), news and literature.

Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions for me. I will be able to provide you with additional information about myself and my qualifications. I can submit more translation samples upon request, so let me know which fields of expertise you would like to see translations in.

I look forward to hearing from everyone - freelancers, translation agencies, corporate clients and individuals. Whoever you are, I am interested in finding out more about your translation and editing needs. I would be very glad to help with your upcoming projects!

IAPTI memberI am a member of the International Association of Professional Translators and Interpreters.
