Valeria Burova

Professional linguist and translator/interpreter (MA degree, industry experience − 13+ years)
Expert in advertising and marketing (offline industry experience − 8 years)
Certified hairdresser — I use my expertise for translation of texts on fashion and hairdressing

I know well what the industry expects linguistically

My strength lies in my ability to provide natural Russian texts, translating the message for maximum appeal to the target audience rather than providing an accurate but over-literal translation. This is an important requirement in most of my specialist areas.

Terminology banks for regular clients

This approach allows to ensure consistency in terminology, style, localization and formatting.

Pricing & time frames

What is included in the price?

Good translator is aware of his/her worth, and in the very end cheap translations come at higher price for customers. Any document is an integral part of the image of a client or a company. Poor quality translations debase the image and may result in errors, legal discrepancies or misunderstanding between partners. Working with me you’re paying not just for the amount of translated material per unit of time, but for the quality.

How long will it take?

Typically, I may guarantee 2000 words per day of high-quality work. Translations take more or less time depending on the volume and the content of original text. Upon accepting a document I first check the content in order to give an accurate estimate of translation time.

Translations are billed according to the number of words in source document. Minimal rate for translation is $ 0.11 per source word.


Go global!

Looking for Russian legal or certified translation? Need English business document, market study in Russian, or a web form for your next vacation abroad translated? In today’s fast-paced global marketplace we need to translate texts, documentation and web sites from English to Russian language and vice versa for personal and/or business use. For the best Russian translation services, look no further! I provide professional English to Russian translation and interpretation services since 2009.

What you get

Full package: comparing to ordering translation services at translation agency or company, many of them would charge you extra for Quality Assurance or proofreading. My services include all those benefits with no extra charge.
Your deadlines are my deadlines. I understand the fast-paced environment of the modern business world.
I use powerful CAT tools and translation management software to increase my efficiency and offer you the best rate possible.

The quality

In order to provide top quality translation I focus on two key aspects:
Impeccable accuracy: I translate the exact concepts of the source-language text
Genuine readability: I carefully re-structure the target-language text so that it reads like an original, not a “translation”.
Produced texts will have no awkward expressions and lack of clarity often associated with translations. At the same time, precise editing and proofreading regime assures the highest levels of accuracy.

Website localization

As a professional Russian translator I am very experienced in adapting clients existing website to local Russian language and culture in the target market.

Document translation

I work with a wide variety of documents: I provide translation of business and legal documents, such as contracts, law, financial statements, guarantee letters, invoices, birth certificates and many others.

Promotional materials

As an expert in advertising and marketing and certified stylist I use my competence for translation of a great variety of texts for this industry: press releases, editorial texts, fashion portfolios and collections, haircuts portfolios, descriptions of collections, concepts of new and existing products, marketing presentations of companies and products etc.


Do you want to be sure that the translated marketing text will have the same convincing power over the audience as the original text crafted by advertising professional? Go for transcreation services, where translation merges with deep stylistic editing and a touch of re-writing in order to achieve the necessary effect.


As professional Russian interpreter and certified linguist I provide the following types of interpretation from Russian to English and from English to Russian: consecutive, escort, conference calls, skype calls and common phone calls.

Consecutive interpreting

This type of language support is usually good for events with small number of participants like meetings or business negotiations. In consecutive interpreting, the source-speaker makes small pauses from time to time in order to allow the interpreter to convey the information to the target audience.

Escort interpreting

Have you ever experienced what it is like to be surrounded by a language or culture that you do not understand while you are travelling?
In escort interpreting, the interpreter is there to interpret (or orally translate) everything that a client says into the target language and also to interpret everything else that is said from that foreign language into the client’s language. An escort interpreter (sometimes called travel interpreter or escorting interpreter) can behave almost as an assistant, helping clients to navigate while they are traveling on business trips. These interpreters may accompany clients to a single meeting or to a handful of meetings.
