Bio
I am a professional translator and translation reviser, conscientious, reliable and resourceful.

A native speaker of Russian, I was born in the heart of Russia, in a city renowned for its literary heritage. After graduating from a local university in 1998 with an MA-level qualification in English and a ‘Distinction’ for the final dissertation I relocated to the UK where I have lived for a number of years in the southern county of Dorset.

My experience in the language practice is diverse covering feature writing for a Russian radio station, work with asylum seekers, news translation for e-media and a trade magazine as well as translation and interpreting work for courts and social services.

Since late 2004 I have worked for an international human rights organisation as a translator and translation reviser.

My recent translation and editing projects (in the last three years) include several non-fiction books and other large publications.

I hold full membership of the Chartered Institute of Linguists (UK) - a leading organisation for language professionals.

As a practising linguist I believe in creative and open-minded approach to translation, that is communicating your message and ideas, not merely replacing words, and writing with the reader in mind. Thus, my ultimate goal both as a translator and a reviser is to create a perfectly translated text that flows as smoothly as any writing in the target language, and never to raise your readers' suspicions that what they see is in fact a translation.

You are always welcome to discuss your requirements - I'll be pleased to listen and taylor my work to your needs.
