Thank you for reading my profile. Let me introduce myself.


I am native Russian speaker, experienced translator, with a degree in solid-state physics and with background in electronic and electrical engineering, automotive industry, mechanical Engineering, material science, chemistry and business administration. That is why I have an excellent understanding of relevant fields of activity and respective terminology. I have been working as English-Russian translator for 30+ years. Having a wide technical background, I specialized mostly in technical translation. Therefore,I guarantee impeccable quality and high accuracy of translations concerning my fields of expertise. I also translate articles on sports, tourism and travel, business issues and other. Besides that, I do editing and proofreading in Russian. I can also arrange text layout or rewrite translated text to make it more acceptable to Russian speaking audience (localization). In addition, I can write original articles in Russian. I live in St.-Petersburg, Russia.


Automotive/cars and trucks,  Mechanical engineering,

Electronics, microelectronics, electrical engineering,

Special equipment, medical equipment, production equipment, etc.

User manuals, specifications, technical descriptions, etc.

I think that it is no use placing the fixed prices for there may be different quotes for projects of different complexity, volume, urgency etc. The quotation 1.50 RUR / 0.026 USD / 0.021 EUR per word for the turnkey translation is only for reference. Contact me and we will agree on prices and terms!


My daily capacity is about 2500 words (10 pages); therefore, I can translate big volumes at reasonable time. I can work in evenings and on weekends if necessary to ensure the customer’s due dates.
