    Russian Translator

    Russia - Last active: 09/03/2014 - Tests: 3

    I am a native Russian speaker with true passion for English language. I graduated one of the best economical universities in Moscow and an external program of The London School of Economics in 2009, majored in economics and finance but while still studying for the Bachelor's degree was freelancing translations in economics and marketing. Apart from translations I've been teaching English and Russian to kids since 2010. What makes me so different from other native Russian translators is that not only I have perfect command of written English and Russian, but also proper, accent less spoken English and would gladly teach English or Russian via Skype. I do translations in economics, marketing, legal and technical translations and guarantee the job done professionally and in time.
