Elana is an extremely talented interpreter and translator. Since 2008, I have worked with her many times and am thoroughly impressed with her ability to convey complicated health-related information from Russian to English and vice versa. Elana works very well under pressure and provides high-quality services despite the challenges. Whether translating a lengthy proposal into Russian under a tight deadline or simultaneously interpreting a lively discussion between senior government officials, Elana always gets it right. In addition to her impressive linguistic ability, she has a collaborative work style and is highly valued team player.”
– Tara Ornstein, TREAT TB Technical Officer at The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union)

Elana is a delight to work with. She translates simultaneously and unobtrusively. If you are looking for a Russian translator, I would not hesitate to hire Elana.”

“It was thrilling to watch Anatoly at work. Switching effortlessly between two languages (Russian and English), he was precise, thoughtful and thorough, yet quick. He handled the logistics of a stage setup very efficiently and kept non-English-speakers fully engaged in the conversation. His interaction with the panelists and the audience seemed effortless, however after the program another professional interpreter who happened to be in the audience came up and shook his hand as a show of his admiration for Samochornov’s virtuoso work. There is no better endorsement than a high praise from a colleague. When we need a Russian-English interpreter in the future, Anatoly will be our number one choice.”
– Alla Rylance, Sr. Librarian, Brooklyn Collection, Brooklyn Public Library

Anatoli provided PEN America with interpretation services for an important delegation of Russian literary figures. They are eloquent in Russian, and he was able to make them the same in English. He also won the writers’ trust and respect, and felt secure that their words and ideas were being conveyed effectively. Anatoli was professional, flexible and a pleasure to work with.”
