Looking for a reliable and experienced Russian translator?
Seek no further as you have come to the right place! My name is Andrei Shmatkov, I am a certified Russian translator and interpreter, member of the Society of Translators and Interpreters of British Columbia (STIBC). Currently based in Vancouver, BC Canada.
I hope that you can use some of my linguistic services:
- Certified Russian translation
- Translation from Russian to English with notarized affidavit
- Proofreading and editing in Russian
- Translation to Belarusian
- Interpreting (English-Russian-English) in Vancouver, British Columbia (and in other areas of Canada)
- Software localization
Russian is my native language and I am fully competent in English. This allows me to provide the highest accuracy and quality of translations. To ensure consistency, I prefer to rely on translation memory (CAT tools) and terminology software (Trados, MemoQ).
I have a university degree in translation/linguistics and over 20 years professional experience, including a position as an in-house Russian translator at leading Russian, Belarusian and worldwide companies. For example, my responsibilities as a full-time translator at World Bank office in Minsk included translating, editing and proofreading economic, legal and other documents from English into Russian and from Russian into English. I worked with various documents, including balance sheets, profit & loss statements, country reports, contracts and legal correspondence, documents of association and other foundation documents.
As a freelance Russian translator, my clients currently include translation agencies, businesses and nonprofit organizations in North America, Europe and other parts of the world. I specialize mainly in IT translations and software localization; however, my expertise is not limited to this area. As a translator, I have worked in several fields including business, international relations, web design and software development and other areas and have successfully handled translation jobs of all sizes including those with large word counts and tight deadlines.
