ACADEMIC EXPERIENCE

I have freelanced as a translator, interpreter, editor, transcriber & proofreader since 2008. I write on a native level in Russian and English and carry out small and large projects through agencies and independent clients, and specialise in the fields of law, healthcare and local government between others. I am a native Russian graduate of the Institute of Linguists London (IoL). As a linguist, my knowledge of spelling and grammar is excellent, and I work quickly and accurately. I am a responsive and professional individual who really enjoys her work. My translation & interpreting-related qualifications are: IoL DPSI Law, 2013; Bachelor’s Degree, 2008 BA Hons. I also have a keen interest in self-development and education content. I have extensive experience working for HM Courts and Tribunals, the Police Service, Law Firms, as well as significant experience in the medical field working with health professionals, including mental health specialists. I have worked on a regular basis with local authorities dealing with housing, education, benefits, disability and work-related issues. I am experienced in interpreting for US Departments and Agencies. I have evolved into a multi-skilled and reliable Russian translator & interpreter. A quick learner who can absorb new ideas and can communicate clearly and effectively with people from all social and professional backgrounds. Well mannered, articulate and fully aware of diversity and multicultural issues. Flexible in the ability to adapt to challenges when they arise and at the same time remaining aware of professional roles and boundaries. I am passionate about effective communication and focused on complete understanding between people in spite of their cultural differences or language. I am able to meet deadlines and can work in a flexible way.
