Bio
I am a fully-qualified translator from Russian into English (UK) and English is my mother tongue. I graduated from the University of Leeds with a first class honours in Russian Studies and was awarded the Tchertkoff Prize for academic excellence. I also have a Masters in Applied Translation Studies from the University of Leeds.



Following my graduation in 2010, I spent six months working full-time for a well-known and renowned historian translating letters written in the 1940s and 1950s - a total of 200,000 words. My translations formed the basis of his book published in the spring of 2012 and I was the sole translator for the entire project. These letters covered all areas and subject matters - emotional, historical and social, philosophical and technical (both correspondees were physicians). Since then I have worked on various other projects, including 100,000+ words for www.strategic-culture.org, an online international relations/politics journal.



I am hard-working and organised, able to work well to deadlines, with a great passion for the Russian language. I always endeavour to deliver high-quality translations tailored to each individual client's needs on time and within budget.
