Are you a paralegal from a legal firm handling dozens of translation requests per week? Are you liaising with multiple freelance translators and agencies at a time to secure the best rate? Are you tired of spending hours deciphering unintelligible translations? Are you looking for a partner you can trust and obtain a quote from within an hour? Look no further.

Today, I started an independent professional LinkedIn Group for Russian translators and interpreters in the UK. The idea to set up this group occurred to me after hours of browsing the internet looking for a partner in my vicinity when I realised that there was no unified directory of Russian translators and interpreters in the UK. There are separate lists of members of ITI and CIoL. There are plenty of websites (i.e. proz.com) offering access to their database of linguists in return for a subscription but this information is not being updated regularly. On LinkedIn, however, we all keep our details up to date. I have seen numerous LinkedIn groups for Russian translators but none of them offer a well organised, timely moderated, geographically bound and user-friendly system for finding high-caliber translators and interpreters in our region.
The objective of this group is to create a forum that will not only be useful to linguists locally, but will also develop and adjust subject to the needs of its members. To ensure high quality of the discussion I have limited membership criteria to three. To find out more, please go to this link.
