MORE ABOUT ME
As a native Russian speaker living in the US since 1999, I help my clients create outstanding Russian-language versions of their materials. After earning an undergraduate degree in linguistics in Russia, I trained as a paralegal at Gainesville State College and worked for several Atlanta-area law firms for a number of years. Thus, my work combines the art of the Russian language with the science of translating English words into Russian concepts.
