Service Description

I literally spent years honing my skills. And since I know too well any translation work is not finished until it meets the demands of a client and their target audience I lay special emphasis on adapting and polishing my translations and ensuring their exceptional quality and accuracy. Needless to say, all texts intended for online use are SEO and SMM ready.

I'm a Russian national but I'm sharing my time between Russia and UK and it helps me a lot to provide accurate translations from English into Russian/Belarusian and vice versa.

# Skills and expertise
I'm a Russian and Belarusian native speaker with fluent English and advanced German studied at University level (Master's degree) and beyond. I also learnt Latin for five years and Czech and Irish (Gaelige) for one year each as a part of my academic studies.

I provide translation and proofreading services for these language pairs:
• English-Russian
• English-Belarusian
• Belarusian-Russian
• German>Russian
• Russian>Russian

My areas of translation and localisation expertise are:
• Marketing and retail (consumer electronics, gadgets, apparel)
• Natural sciences (physics, chemistry, biology)
• IT (networking, databases, system administration, UNIX, Linux, Microsoft Windows)
• Programming (languages, frameworks, tools)
• Software (standalone, mobile and web applications, websites)
• Video games (mobile, PC and console titles)
• TV (scripts, subtitling, voice-over)
• Mention YNWA in your message to me and I'll grant you...
