Nadya Lamara

Saint Petersburg, Russia

Summary

For the past 9 years, I have been working as a legal translator in St Petersburg. I translate legal and financial documents (agreements, due diligence, articles of association, audit reports, etc.) and a wide variety of materials (business correspondence, articles, interviews, press releases, websites, market research, etc.) from Russian into English and occasionally from French into English.

My extensive experience as a translator (12 years altogether working at NOVAVOX, the Consulate of Canada in St Petersburg, ASTERA, DLA PIPER, and freelance) allows me to provide accurate work and meet deadlines with great ease. During my career, I have also gained considerable experience in proofreading and editing documents drafted in English. I can equally write in British English or American English depending on which is required.
