Notice: I am on maternity leave and am not able to take up any jobs at the moment.

I am a native Russian speaker currently living in Singapore, and with a strong connection to the United Kingdom and Russia. I have lived in Singapore and the UK for over 14 years, so I have experience of East and West, excellent understanding of English, and background knowledge of Singapore and the UK. I regularly go to Russia so I am up-to-date with Russian language and culture.

I am qualified by the Institute of Linguists (UK).

My specializations:

- Patents: patent applications and follow-up correspondence, patent translations for information purposes

- Medicine: brochures about hospitals, medical centres, general, pharmaceuticals (drug descriptions), special diets for patients, etc.

- Civil Aviation and Airport technologies: airport planning, design and operation, airport mechanics, aircraft equipment, etc.

- General science and technology: articles about discoveries and new technologies

- Wine, whisky and viticulture: brochures and articles about whisky/wine distilleries

- Tourism: hotel/resort brochures, tour descriptions, trip schedules
