Thank you for looking at my page.
I am a language professional who loves a good translation experience. I have studied 3 languages, but my passion is Russian. I have been a Russian, English, French and Spanish teacher and I have been translating for 3 years. I began translating professionally in graduate school and am now a full-time freelancer.
I also edit and proofread, and work only into my native language, so I can guarantee that all my translations sound correct, natural and professional in the target language.
I have translated marketing materials, websites, maps, news articles, letters, medical and pharmaceutical documents, political opinion columns, essays, poems, stories, and certificates. I have learned Russian as a foreign language from the ground up and am very proud of that monumental feat! I also know French to near-native fluency from intensive study and immersion for many years.
If you are looking for a translation that has the smooth, natural sound of an experienced native speaker and the precision and accuracy of a grammar nerd, you've come to the right place. I focus on giving my clients the results they need when they need them. If I can't do the job perfectly, I will decline. If I have a question, I will ask. I would be honored to do business with you. Thank you!
