I undertake projects from clients in both Russia and the United Kingdom. My published work includes magazine articles, press releases, political analysis, industry overviews for lobbying materials, marketing materials and web content. In translation of texts from Russian-English, I aim for a finely-tuned, sensitive use of language and register. Above all, my work is accurate, reader-oriented and polished. In copywriting, I aim to weave elegant and persuasive texts out of raw data and research. I take considerable pride in all assignments and always meet my deadlines.
Samples of my work and references are all available on request.
