Summary of Language Experience

Russian to English (US)

Saul has been interested in languages since his childhood days in a bilingual family. After independently learning English without any teachers / tutors in 1970-ies and receiving an Honors Certificate from the State Foreign Language Courses (Leningrad, 1985), Saul continued to pursue his career in Survey & Mapping with occasional forays into the translation field. Then, in the early 1990-ies, he started to work as a full-time translator and in various other positions (Logistics, Procurement, Materials, etc.) which required bilingual (English-Russian) skills, before finally embarking on a highly successful career of a full-time freelance translator in 2006. This broadly diversified background gives Saul a distinct edge over translators with purely linguistic education and experience in translations of a wide range of technical and business-related subjects
