Bio

I have over 24 years of experience working on international projects, translating and interpreting. I have a long record of translating books from English into Russian for a publishing house in Minsk in Belarus, with more than 25 books translated to date, all of them with Popuri Publishers.

These include but are not limited to:

  1. First Steps to Wealth, Dani Johnson
  2. 21 Great Ways To Get The Job You Really Want, Brian Tracy
  3. The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, John C. Maxwell
  4. What Would Machiavelli Do?, Stanley Bing
  5. Multiple Sources of Income, Robert G. Allen
  6. There's No Such Thing as Business Ethics, John C. Maxwell
  7. Water Logic, Edward de Bono
  8. Six Action Shoes, Edward de Bono
  9. Cancer Is Not A Disease!, Andreas Moritz

My way of doing translation jobs is speed and quality.

My background is university-level math, and as I'm used to solving complex problems, it helps me take on most challenging translations. My professional record includes books and papers on philosophical issues, and research project reports, e.g. Edward de Bono's works and Russian Arctic Sea Protection Project research papers and reports. I translated two national level documents into English, namely: National Action Programme on Environmental Protection, and the First National Communication under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

One project I take real pride in was translating into English parts of the scripts of well-known Russian TV series: "Krujeva" (Lace), "Dom kuvyrkom" (Full House), "Provincialka" (The Provincial Girl). It was fun and inspiring work.

I have a long record working for translation agencies, so I know what meeting a deadline is, and how important it is to be strictly on time. To be conscientious and diligent in what I do is my motto.

I am currently employed with a software development company as a technical writer & business analyst, a job that requires subtle desk-publishing and writing skills. My line of duty includes resx-file localization, translations, and content-writing. I do web design too.

My other translation experience includes legal texts, finances & marketing textbooks (e.g. Robert Allen's Multiple Streams of Income), medical studies, and books on personal development (e.g. Eat That Frog!: 21 Ways to stop Procrastination and get More Done in Less Time by Brian Tracy). Check out my sample translations above.

In addition to translation and interpretation, I have experience working as an editor (Russian ⇔ English).

If you need a seasoned, hard-boiled translator, with vast hands-on experience behind his back, I am here for you
