I translate into my 2 native
languages - English and Russian - from almost any
language which uses either Latin or Cyrillic alphabet. Whereby, I am equally
comfortable with US, UK, Australian and New Zealand English.


My translation experience is more than 40
During all these years, I have translated and edited
numerous texts in almost any possible field, even though my preferences lie in
such subjects as legal, medical, marketing, communications (by the way, I have
a Bachelor's Degree in Communications), politics, education, human resources,
history, journalism, culture, travel & tourism, etc. and so on. Please also
note that for many years, my translation work was
combined with practical work in some other professional fields, such as
communication, journalism, finance, Real Estate, and language teaching.


I work with Trados Studio, SmartCat, Memsource, MemoQ  and, by agreement with the client, charge between 0.06 and 0.09 EUR per source
for full TEP service (depending on the
language pair, format of the source file, level of text difficulty, size of the
project and delivery deadline).


My TEP work consists
of the following 3 stages: 1. I personally and thoroughly translate the entire
file; 2. My partner (also a native English speaker) proofreads my translation;
3. After that, I do my own final checking, ensuring the quality which does not
require any further editing or proofreading at the client's end, i.e. the
quality ready for publication

I can be contacted 24
hours a day by email or on Skype. In case of urgency, please also send SMS to
(+61) 408 124 498 in order to alert me for immediate checking my Inbox and/or
Skype messages - and I will respond very fast to any inquiry you may have.


I cover most of the subjects, but usually decline highly
specialized texts in engineering, technical sciences, architecture and
agriculture fields.
 My normal output is 10, 000
words a week (1,500 words a day, including weekends and Public Holidays).

However as a company, we
cover almost any language combination and any subject, and of course our daily
output could be much higher. Terms and conditions for any specific project
where I need help of my team are determined separately in each particular case.




I have gained a good experience with subtitling work,
providing subtitles for such TV serials as 'The Big C', 'Tudors' and 'Damages'.
I work with Subtitle Edit 3.5.0 and deliver my work in SRT format.




In addition, I am also a writer (writing both in English
and Russian). For example, my work titled
"Travel Through Life" is
published as eBook by Ex-L-Ence Publishing (UK). This book can be obtained from
any local Amazon website. For links to this and my other significant creative
works, please refer to my website

Note for Translators
Please kindly note that at this stage (and until further notice) we are not looking for new translators.


"The level of service Matt keeps providing is always
above standards both regarding quality and his
willingness to solve problems and find solutions.
Glossy websites by international and well-known
companies are full of nice promises but very often
when it comes to tight deadlines or really complicated
situations those promises are often forgotten and one
finds oneself in the middle of crisis and without any
hope for help.

Matt only promises what he is sure he will be able to
keep and he has never put me down even in extremely
difficult situations. His friendly and very positive
approach has saved many of my projects. He will always
be on the top of my list when it comes to assigning an
important project to a trustworthy and loyal language
service provider." (Annette Hemera, Skrivanek)
