ATA-Certified English-Russian Translator


Evgeny Terekhin is a Houston-based ATA-certified English-Russian literary translator, interpreter, and editor, and a member of Houston Interpreters and Translators Association (HITA).

I specialize in English to Russian and Russian to English literary, IT, medical, and legal translations. I can make your content linguistically-perfect, mind-enriching, client-appealing, interest-kindling, Where Every Word is a Feast.     

Generic content does not leave an impression. It leaves you unmoved and you leave. Attention-grabbing content gets us surprised by some unexpected language, mold-breaking metaphors, paradigm-shifting expressions. Words must make us alive. Translation is not just communication, it’s transformation! It is ART. 

I specialize in translating and creating metaphor-drenched, mind-stimulating, interest-kindling, page-turning marketable content — with 20 years of experience in linguistics, marketing, advertisement, social media, literature, self-help, psychology, education, parenting, spiritual and mental health, and balanced living.

Since 1993 I have translated from English into Russian over 100 books, brochures, and tracts.

10+ million words translated and edited in marketing, IT, medical, e-commerce, safety, subtitling, Internet, and other fields;

27 years in English to Russian interpreting, both online and in-person.

I localized over 500 websites, apps (the Russian section of Beelinguapp), whitepapers, ads, user manuals;

I am a published author in English and Russian (articles, children’s books, fairy-tales in English, etc.);

Contributor for SOURCE, a quarterly publication by ATA’s literary division. Translation of C.S. Lewis’ poem “The Birth of Language.”

I hold a master’s degree in English and German from Omsk State Pedagogical University, 1995;

I produce idiomatic translations in Russian and English, which read as if they were written by a native speaker;

I use Trados Studio 2017, Passolo 2011, MemSource, MemoQ, and Wordfast Pro 3 and 5;

I follow best SEO-practices and can work directly into WordPress websites;

I will keep your page layout unchanged regardless of the file type.
