I have been making a living as a translator since pre-Internet days.

My translations speak for themselves after 29 years.

I am a translator, editor, writer and copywriter with a strong technical and research background (12 years as an engineer, commissioned officer and research scientist, and 14 years as a full-time freelance/contract writer, translator/editor/interpreter, including 3+ years of work in the UK).

Our main language pairs are English<>Russian, English<>Ukrainian, Russian<>Ukrainian, French<>Russian, French<>Ukrainian, Polish<>Ukrainian.
