Bio
I am a freelance translator with a degree in French and Russian from Oxford University and almost ten years' experience as a professional translator. I provide high-quality translations from Russian and French into English in a range of subject areas. I use SDL Trados software and have used a variety of other CAT tools as well, including Memsource and MemoQ. 

My main areas of expertise are literature, law, marketing, art and culture, history, sport and leisure, and travel and tourism. I have translated nine books from Russian into English for the publishing house Glagoslav, including Pavel Basinsky's book about Leo Tolstoy, 'Flight from Paradise', and Marietta Chudakova's biography of Mikhail Bulgakov; I have also translated Julien Bitoun's book about legendary guitarists, 'Guitars and Heroes', from French into English, and a book by Thibault Muzergues about political and social trends and the four new classes that have emerged in society. 

In the other sections of my profile you will find information about my rates, samples of my work and a summary of some of the projects on which I have worked.

If you have any questions or wish to request a translation, please send an email to: hwilldavies@gmail.com or call me on +447477 806976.
