I am a qualified professional English/Russian into German translator with extensive expertise in various fields.
German language being my passion provides my translations not only being accurate but also phrased in attractive and beautiful German.
During my studies of physics at the Belorussian University in Minsk I obtained a high level of the Russian language and my interest in foreign languages was generally aroused.
While employed as a design engineer and software developer at the car plant Ludwigsfelde I worked frequently as an interpreter and translator of Russian in addition to my actual tasks.
Due to my employments in the field of science and IT later and to my personal passionate interest in the English language I could achieve a high level of skill in the English language too.
Three years ago I decided to turn the passion for languages into my profession.
As my strengths I see quickness of comprehension and the adaptability I have been developing through my working experience in various different areas.
Hobbies: Norwegian, Spanish and Japanese, Japanese culture, dancing, hiking, reading classics and modern literature in the original.

Ich bin freiberuflicher Fachübersetzer für Englisch und Russisch ins Deutsche mit langjähriger Erfahrung in den verschiedensten Bereichen.
Die deutsche Sprache ist nicht nur meine Muttersprache, sondern auch meine Leidenschaft. Das ist die Garantie dafür, dass meine Übersetzungen nicht nur genau, sondern auch in attraktivem und schönem Deutsch formuliert sind.
Während meines fünfjährigen Studiums der Physik an der Belorussischen Universität in Minsk konnte ich mir ein hohes Niveau in der Beherrschung der russischen Sprache aneignen und mein Interesse an Fremdsprachen wurde im Allgemeinen geweckt.
Durch meine Beschäftigungen im Bereich Wissenschaft und IT ebenso wie mein persönliches leidenschaftliches Interesse an der englischen Sprache konnte ich auch darin ein hohes Maß an Beherrschung erreichen.
