Russian Translator

Providing a single solution for all Russian translation needs

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a full-time Russian native translator based in the UK with an MA in linguistics and a BA in law. I am a qualified member of ITI and IOL and own a small Russian translation company based in Lincoln. I am writing to Outsource Translation today with my business details and CV, so that I/my company might be considered for suitable translation projects.

For the last eight years, I have been living and working in the UK, and this has allowed me to develop a better understanding of the English language and its cultural nuances. As a result, I am confident in my ability to translate into Russian to a high degree of accuracy. This has been strengthened by becoming a leading Russian language services provider to a number of translation agencies, as well as numerous direct clients worldwide.

My specialist subjects include:

- Law & Legal
- Business & Finance
- Advertising & Marketing
- Travel & Tourism
- IT & Website Localization

(I am responsible for the Russian sector of a well-known tour magazine)

Throughout my career, I have been fortunate enough to work with many talented and experienced translators from various technical fields, which allows my company to translate material from a variety of industry specific sources. This professional network results in accurate translation and cross-checking of completed documents.

As a perfectionist, who pays great attention to detail, I am committed to consistent quality and customer satisfaction with strict adherence to all deadlines. I am proud that my work has proved to be a very good value to all of my clients, ensuring a high ratio of repeat custom.

Although I run my business as a translation company, the charges are based on freelance rates, but we never compromise on quality. More details can be found at <>.

Further details about my qualifications and experience can be found in my CV below.

I sincerely hope that you will consider my application and look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Yours faithfully,
Anna Bowman MITI, MCIL (English-Russian)
