I am a native Russian living in Russia with more than 10 years experience in English to Russian translations. This experience includes my work in the following fields:
I took the 1st place in English to Russian Translation test of the famous freelance services Upwork portal (out of 30 900 other test takers):
- Web Content
I've been working on Russian and English web content since the very beginning of the Internet era. Over 5 years of experience in Web Content Management, knowledge of HTML, CSS, Java Script gives me advantages in translating texts for web-sites.

- Technical Documentation
I have a Master Degree in Physics (Samara State University) and more than 5 years experience of working as a Technical Writer for such an international company as Paragon Software GmBH. Moreover translating for different Russian companies usually includes translating technical documents from English - machinery and equipment decriptions, or safity engineering documents.
- Film Sceenplays
Writing and translating screenplays is the other part of my life as you can see from other pages of this web-site. I am one of co-writers of educational animation TV series "Aunt Owl Lessons", a co-writer of the animation TV series "Microhi" and some other animation projects. My feature screenplay, a fantasy based on Emily Dickinson's bio, among semi-finalists of the 8th Annual StoryPros Awards Screenplay Contest (Teen / Family category):
"The Flowered Bracelet". This passion for writing became a good base for helping other writers and producers in translating their screenplays from Russian into English. I'm proud to cooperate with such Russian production companies as Revolutia Film, Spectr-Optim, Aurora Media. I also work with Los Angeles-based studios. Here is a feedback from my good friend Alberto Velasques-Manuchi, the Director of VAVEM TV Production Company:

Here is the original version, by Emily Dickinson:
Of God we ask one favor,
That we may be forgiven
For what, he is presumed to know -
The Crime, from us, is hidden -
Immured the whole of Life
Within a magic Prison
We reprimand the Happiness
That too competes with Heaven
I write a novel about Emily Dickinson, translating some poems of hers into Russian. There were some really song-related projects, where I've been given a melody to translate original lyrics from English to Russian.
