Professional Profile

I have been working as a Russian interpreter and translator  for over fifteen years. I have a lot of experience in conference interpreting. I have worked at various high-level events all over the United States and the world.  Currently I live in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

I worked for the U.S. Department of State, The World Bank, U.S. courts, the U.S. Customs, the Department of Agriculture, with specialists in various fields and ministers of various countries.   My work has been commended for being professional, efficient, very high quality and thoroughly prepared.  Some of the areas I worked in:
 
  • Legal (import and export legislation, laws, resolutions, provisions, trade, customs regulations, contracts, court interpretation)
  • Medicine (prevention and treatment of health hazards related to radiation; women's health, healthcare reform)
  • Nuclear nonproliferation (nuclear industry and policies in the Commonwealth of Independent States, nuclear facilities, nuclear materials, technology, production processes, mining)
  • Military (nuclear, chemical, and other weapons of mass destruction, equipment, policies, conversion, navy)
  • Economics and finance
  • International policy 
  • Oil/gas (prospecting, drilling, maintenance of wells)
  • Energy (safety standards, policy, specialist exchange programs);
  • Space (satellites, policy, the International Space Station);
  • Agriculture
  • Education (university administration, fundraising);
  • Document translation (birth certificates, marriage certificates, diplomas, etc. with certification and notarization when necessary)
  • Voice over/dubbing (I have a pleasant voice and great pronunciation, I am very familiar with idiomatic expressions both in English and Russian, and therefore have had a lot of experience in doing voice over for movies, advertisements or other video materials)
  • Interviews at Immigration Services (extensive experience interpreting at asylum interviews and other immigration issues)
