Russia-based professional translator living in a Siberian city near the Lake Baykal. See the lake on a map: quite big, moon-shaped — right there, in the Middle Asia — I love it for its crystal water, wide open spaces and evergreen pine trees. A great place to free your mind and cleanse your soul. James Cameron came here in August 2010 to celebrate his 50th jubilee. He came down to bottom and then went to drink vodka at a local camp. :) I love to have a laugh, but personal freedom is what I value the most, and everything beautiful and creative is my big interest. I like to get to know other people and cultures, it's awesome to find that we all have much in common. I believe that friendship is far beyond a language.

I am an adherent of Cognitive Linguistics. Simply speaking of its application, from wording you can get pretty much anything about the speaker: their mood, appearance, background, attitude on the subject matter and, on certain conditions, even to what side from the wall they hang toilet paper, et cetĕra.

I've been translating and proof-reading within the GNOME Project and as a member of the Russian Ubuntu Translators team. I have mostly been interested in Banshee and Deluge, two great products for Linux, OS X and Windows.
