Overview

Hello!

My name is Max, and I am a full-time freelance translator and subtitler located in Perm, Russia. I have more than 5 years of successful home-based working under my belt, including hundreds of completed projects and a healthy fivescore of delighted clients. Wordplay junkie, fervent reader, grammar stickler, zealous wordsmith—that is who I am. Honest, principled and reliable, I always meet deadlines and deliver only excellent translations.

Over the last few years I have collaborated with a great number of independent and corporate...
