I am a native speaker of American English, a freelance translator (since 2008) and editor (since 1983).

I have a BA in Russian and Psychology.

In my translation work, I have concentrated on psychology (, economics and business, politics and government, and marketing. I do not do highly technical scientific and other technical translations, although I can handle scientific and technical documents aimed at the layman.

I am a top-notch editor and writer (since 1983), who also has a very good knowledge of German and Russian. I have often worked as an editor of translations by others. Many people who are bilingual or nearly so do not have excellent writing skills in English, so often that's where I come in.

I have long experience in editing English-language articles written by non-native speakers of English, and this is an important feature of my freelance business.

I adhere scrupulously to deadlines, as per my many years as an editor.

My preferred CAT tool is OmegaT. I also have Across and SDL Studio 2014. I do not give so-called "Trados discounts" except for 100% matches.
