About me

Being passionate about sustainable development and circular economy, I work hard to be helpful for a business in their attempt to go green. As early as at my 13, I first contributed to a social and environmental project, a handwritten book compiled of short environmental essays and pictures made by schoolchildren of various backgrounds and nationalities: Russian, Ukrainian, Nigerian, Indian, French and more (the initiative took place in Ajaokuta, Nigeria, where I was at that time). Since that time, I keep reading more in this domain. Later, in 2009-2014, I was contributing to organizing international Scrap Metals Forum, the largest event in Europe for scrap metals recycling industry. In July 2013 I made a speech "Conventional vs. Organic Farming" (advocating the Organic) at the International Grain conference in Saratov, Russia. In 2014 I took two trainings on environmental translation. In 2015 I have completed a MOOC on Circular Economy and got a verified certificate from TU Delft. Then followed my Permaculture Design Course (PDC) in 2018. In October 2019 I translated some sections of Global Ecovillage Network Ukraine website into English and made a tour as a volunteer to some of those ecovillages.

Marketing translation with a special focus on tourism takes an outstanding place in my portfolio. I like to travel both within my country and abroad. I visited 17 countries so far and lived in two of them: Russia for 8 years in total and Nigeria for 1 year.

IT translation goes smoothly for me, as I am equipped with a diploma in computer systems and delivered some localization projects.

Before going into freelance translation, I had an extensive experience in steel industry, working as an export manager at a steel mill, as an engineer at the construction of a new steel mill and as an international steel conference project manager. Thus, translation for steel industry is not something new for me.

Having a diverse set of skills and interests, I made my mind go freelance. My service range includes translation, transcreation, localization, web content writing, keyword research for SEO and PPC, and some local arrangements for your business. English into Russian and English into Ukrainian are my primary language pairs.

My full CV is readily available upon request.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
