All the expertise and experience necessary for
accurate, dependable Russian to English translations

Lucy Gunderson, certified translator

Hi, I’m Lucy.

A translation project isn’t something you should entrust to just anyone. For your own peace of mind, and so you’re fully satisfied with the results, it’s always best to choose someone with extensive experience and all the right credentials.

I help lawyers, human rights defenders, journalists, and authors transform their words from Russian into clear, accurate English.

Choosing to work with me, a professional with two decades of experience in the language industry underpinned by an in-depth education, means you’ll know your message will always be communicated effectively.

Because no matter how much experience I have, I know I can never rest on my laurels. My skills as a translator rely on me being up to date with my specialist areas and the latest in the world of languages.

As an ATA-certified translator, I’m required to continually hone my skills by attending conferences, seminars, and webinars.

The right balance

I believe in hard work, but I also know that to provide my clients with the best results I need to be well rested and creatively stimulated. 

Away from my desk in Queens, New York, I can be found at my dacha playing tennis, swimming, or walking.

I’m an avid reader, as are all good literary translators! After years of dreaming about it, I’m finally becoming an author myself, writing my first mystery novel.
