About Me

Переводчик, ищу работу. Хорошо владею английским, шведским, французским, а также немного финским, испанским, немецким и другими языками, русский - родной. Живу где-то между Финляндией и Квебеком. Изредка заезжаю в Россию и через Интернет поддерживаю там оппозицию.

Je suis traducteur et cherche du travail. Je parle bien anglais, suédois, français et un peu de finnois, espagnol, allemand et d'autres langues. Le russe est ma langue maternelle. Je habite quelque part entre la Finlande et le Québec. Parfois je m'arrête en Russie et je soutiens l'opposition russe via Internet.

Ich bin Übersetzer und auf der suche nach Arbeit. Ich spreche gut Englisch, Schwedisch, Französisch, un bischen Finnisch, Spanisch und anderen Sprachen. Russisch ist meine Muttersprache. In den letzten Jahren habe ich in Finnland und in Quebec gelebt. Manchmal fahre ich nach Russland und ich unterstütze die russische Opposition über das Internet.

Olen kääntäjä ja etsin työtä. Puhun englantia, ruotsia, ranskaa ja vähän suomea, espanjaa, saksaa ja muita kieliä. Venäjä on minun äidinkieli. Asun jonnekin Suomen ja Quebecin välillä. Joskus pysähdyn Venäjällä ja kannatan Venäjän opposition Internetissä.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In 2004 I learned Spanish in one month and successfully passed the entrance test for the Spanish programme at Université Laval (Québec, QC).
In 2009 I got a very high score in the Swedish entrance test for Abo Akademi (Finland) and was accepted as a student for the Swedish programme.
Since 2010 I have been volunteering as an editor of a Russian opposition website.

What I Can Share with Hosts

By profession I am a translator, so I can mainly help with languages.
I can help people learn my native language, Russian. If needed, I can also help with other languages that I know well.
I have some Russian films and songs with me, which you can watch and listen to.
I have advanced computer skills and can share them as well.
If you think that I can contribute in some other way, you can ask me.
