Right Words for Your English and Russian Content
ENGLISH and RUSSIAN content is what I translate and create for 20 years.
When you may need my services?
You've got a file or site in English / Russian and want to make an English / Russian version.
There is already an English or Russian version, but natives start to frown and look away whenever they see it. And you start to realize that hiring an independent localizer to assess and polish it a bit may make pretty much sense.
Your content relates to IT, electronics, telecommunication, marketing or psychology. And you want someone with deep understanding of these topics to localize a bunch of words for your target group.
Major IT and engineering companies regularly send me their complex, wordy, and highly visible content.
I graduated from Moscow State University's psychology faculty in 1997. Then I worked at Moscow Gestalt Institute and collaborated with COMCON-2, IPSOS, and Mart market research companies. That's why I always consider target group's perception besides grammar rules.
Every customer likes when translators offer automatic QA and finalization services.
Yes, I do it, too. For free. Customers also love saving on previously translated words and phrases. And they get what they want. 100% matches won't cost you a dime.

I may not publish my localization projects because of NDAs. But I can prove that I successfully completed a similar job, if any. Feel also free to offer a short unpaid test (< 300 words) or a more extensive paid one.
