Let me introduce myself.
My name is Andrei Shmatkov, I am a freelance Russian translator and interpreter and a 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:

Russian is my native language and I am fully competent in English. This allows me to provide the highest accuracy and quality of translation.
To ensure consistency, I prefer to rely on translation memory (CAT tools) and terminology software (Trados, MemoQ).
