Hi, I'm a freelance translator/editor with the background in IT. I help people get their content in Russian quickly and correctly, and I love my job. I translate, edit and localize mostly from English, but also from Swedish and Spanish.

“I started working with Ms. Julia Makoushina in 2006 when I was under the employment of another translation agency. At that time, we were looking for a reliable and proficient English to Russian translator, for projects assigned to us by a major MNC client. Since then, I have had the pleasure of working with Julia on numerous projects, not only for this client but subsequently for other clients as well. Apart from translations from English to Russian, Julia also supported us in translations from Russian to English as well.
Through the years of working with Julia, we find that her rates reasonable and her deliveries are always punctual, if not earlier. We have never encountered any issues with the standard of the work she produced in either target languages. Her pleasant disposition and professionalism are assuring factors when assigning projects to her as we know that they will be well taken care of and delivered on time. To add to that, Julia will go the extra mile, out of her way to try to accommodate us in some of the challenging deadlines we gave her.
Needless to say, when I started my own translation agency in 2014, Julia was top of the list when my company had the need for the services of a Russian translator.”

Julia always responds promptly and is always in touch, her emails have a polite and friendly tone. She is responsible and attentive, the quality is clearly important to her as she makes effective use of all available resources when given a project (client's instructions, style guides, termbases, QA tools etc.). Julia always asks clarifying questions during the course of a project, studies the subject matter in detail, responds quickly to new instructions and delves into the product that translates. It is important to point out here that she consistently meets all deadlines and even delivers earlier than agreed, maintaining a high quality of the translation.
Moreiver, Julia's opinion as a translator and editor is always highly appreciated, her feedbacks help to train and evaluate other translators.
Julia travels a lot. She has lived in other countries and has a wide outlook, so she provides services in the RU>EN language pair and in the travel subject area as well.
