    Copywriter, Translator, Transcriber

    Ukraine - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 6

    Briefly: — Copywriter with agency experience; — Writer and translator with excellent English, Russian and Ukrainian; — Never-miss-a-word transcriber. And now, here's what I do, explained in more words. PERFECT COPY A client, while briefing me for a job, once told me: “I need a perfect text.” I replied I had no idea what a perfect text is and offered to write the copy the way I saw fit. After receiving the text, the client said he wanted to use the product. I suppose that could be considered to be perfect copy. I wish there were tools to design that kind of impact. Well, actually there are: words, words, words. I write copy for products, services and businesses. I like to think about it as “advertising with words”. Copy is not a 360 campaign, but it also needs a creative idea around which all those words revolve. Sometimes the idea comes easily and words follow naturally, other times it is more of a struggle. With a new assignment, everything starts anew. The approach that takes me from job to job is this: I am the product’s most loyal fan. I write copy in three languages: English, Russian and Ukrainian. TRANSLATION AS ADAPTATION An English philologist by education, I obviously have a keen interest in making a text work in another language. I view the process as adaptation, or rephrasing in the target language. I translate website content, articles, marketing materials and texts of general interest from and to English, Russian and Ukrainian. TRANSCRIPTION I type words — accurately and mostly on time. So, you need work done? Let's discuss what I can do for you.
