Service Description

I was born in Russia but raised and educated in America. I hold a Bachelor's degree with honors in History, Philosophy and Social Studies of Science and Medicine from the world-renowned University of Chicago. My Bachelor's thesis had been recommended for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

On Elance, I provide two distinct services: English to Russian/Russian to English translation and US English text editing.

My editing specialties are readability and style. I have a keen eye for errors and a great ear for smooth-flowing prose. I've got three novels and countless published nonfiction articles under my belt.

I edit everything from academic monographs to humorous fiction. I respond to client communications promptly, even outside of work hours.

I strive for 100% customer satisfaction.
