About me

Hello! My name is Olga, and I'm a freelance translator, interpreter and tour guide in Novosibirsk, Altai and other destinations in Western Siberia.

I started my professional career as an English teacher in 1995 when I was a university student. In 2001 I found my first in-house translation job. In 2004 my first son was born, but I soon realized I could do more than to be just a mother and a housewife and tried freelancing. It was exiting to combine work and family life. In 2006 my old dream came true - I was invited by a local travel agency to translate for a group of tourists from Europe in Novosibirsk, the city I live in, and soon after I started tourguiding on my own.
It is great to tell people about my city and my region, about interesting facts and about the sights Siberia has to offer. I had to learn a lot of things I never knew about my home town and I still learn something new every day. I'm always happy to tell other people about Novosibirsk and Siberia, because I love my region and want to share this love with my tourists. This region has never been considered to be a great travel destination, but now, when the number of tourists is increasing, I'm proud to be among those who spread the information about my homeland. And I write this blog to tell everyone how interesting and amazing Siberia is!
Of course I'm a crazy traveler myself and here I will write about the travels I've been on, both in Russia and abroad. Altai Mountains is one of my favourite travel destination, I used to go trekking there when I was a student. Now I go there with my family every summer to show my children the beauty of the region and I'm waiting for them to grow older to be able to do trekking and rafting.
In this blog I invite you for a virtual travel around Western Siberia, Altai and Novosibirsk.

Interpreting is my second favorite activity. It is a highly demanding and challenging job, and I have a long and thorny path behind me. I still have to learn a lot, as this job implies life-long learning, but for the time being I believe I have collected enough experience to be able to offer the services of a simultaneous and consecutive English-Russian and German-Russian interpreter. Being an interpreter is never boring, as I have to visit a lot of places ordinary people just can't think of. I've interpreted at numerous exhibitions, negotiations, assembling of machines at factories, in hospitals and restaurants, universities and storehouses, and much more. If you need an intepreter in Novosibirsk, do not hesitate to contact me. I'll be more than hapy to help you.

Despite tourguiding and interpreting require much time and efforts, translation still remains my principal activity, especially during non-season. I've been working as an English-Russian, German-Russian translator since 2001 and I believe I can do it pretty well. I can think of no other job that could be as interesting as mine. As a translator I always know what's new in the world. I know what a tooth prosthesis is made of and what we really eat when we buy an ice-cream:) Feel free to contact me, should you need an experienced English-Russian or German-Russian translator in Novosibirsk. 

I am looking forward to hearing from you!
