Service Description

Russian/English Translation:
I am a native English speaker and I am also completely fluent in Russian, in formal and informal uses. I have spent several months in Moscow to further develop my Russian communication skills and I can provide the highest quality translation services between English and Russian.

Proofreading:
I have a significant amount of experience in proofreading other people's work. My grammar is impeccable, and I am extremely well read. I am also passionate about writing, I would engage in any job in this field with enthusiasm and would be an asset to any project requiring these skills.

Editing:
I possess a large vocabulary and because I have spent the last few years travelling, residing, and studying within the U.K I have acquired a knowledge of the differences between British and American writing, spelling, and grammar. This allows me to assist in the editing of any publication that seeks to have a wider audience by targeting the U.K.

Writing:
I love creative writing, and would like to pursue it full-time in the future, but I am also skilled in writing technical documents or descriptive pieces. I can also write in Russian with a high degree of proficiency. I have a broad background knowledge that can contribute to most specialized writing projects, e.g. writing about technology, art, food, travel, etc.
