Bio


PROFESSIONAL TRANSLATOR, LOCALIZATION/LAQ SPECIALIST

I’ve always been passionate about languages and cultures,
which is why I studied Translation, International Communications, Culture
Studies, and Linguistics. I now hold a Specialist Diploma in Translation &
Translation Theory (with Honors), which is equivalent to a Master's Degree in
the US.



My career as a translator and interpreter started in 2003. I
was involved with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Chelyabinsk, Russia),
accompanied a group of Russian tourists on their trip to Egypt as an interpreter, and worked with
a large Russian-based, international construction company.



After moving to the United States in 2005, I decided to further follow
my passion. I now successfully run my own translation business, helping local (US-based)
and international clients produce content in Russian and English (US), expand
their online presence, reach customers in their target markets, develop their
business, and increase their revenue.



Who will benefit the most from our cooperation:

- Marketing & advertising departments at large international
corporations, looking to expand to the Russian and the US markets

- News outlets, looking to reach their target audience in
Russia and the US

- Video games developers who want to bring their games to players
in Russia and the US

- Apps/software developers who want to offer their products
to users in Russia and the US

- Broadcast media and media production companies, wishing to
produce audio and video content in Russian and English

- Companies in the motion picture and entertainment industry
that want make their content available to their target audience in Russia and
the US

- Publishers who want to have their books translated into
Russian and English

- Companies in the hospitality, tourism & travel
industry that want to have their websites localized for the Russian- and English-speaking
clients, etc.
