    Professional English-Russian translator

    Russia - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 3

    Hi! I am very glad to welcome you on my profile page! Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am a native Russian speaker, who is also fluent in English and French. I have been interpreting since my childhood, and I keep improving my language skills by doing what I like and can do. I graduated from the Moscow State Humanitarian University, faculty of foreign languages, and have the diploma of a teacher of English and French. Worked as an interpreter during international sport competitions, volunteered for the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. Freelancing experience in translation is quite big, I've been working in this sphere since 2009. I discovered ODesk quite recently, so my rating here is next to none. But if you can read Russian, you are more than welcome to read reviews about my work on other freelancing sites:
