Service Description

I translate a wide variety of materials from German and Russian into English, and also proofread and copy edit translations and other documents.

I also translate videos and create the resultant voice-overs in high quality audio. I then put the recorded translation back onto the original video using video editing software, taking great care to sync the audio with the visual images.
