Olga Bogatova


I am a certified Russian interpreter and translator based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I offer language services ranging from translation and editing to localization and interpreting.

Born and raised in Moscow, Russia, and then moved to the U.S., I am fluent in Russian and English and have rich experience in translation and interpreting.

I received a Master’s Degree in Life Sciences and a Diploma in Technical Translation in Russia in 2009. After moving to California a year later, I started my own translation business to promote professional language services to a wide circle of international clients and support local Russian community.

I translate from English into Russian, Russian into English, and Spanish into English and have broad experience in general and specialized translations, which includes marketing, business, medicine, science, as well as patents, law and engineering.
Besides, I offer editing, proofreading, QA check and back-translation services. I provide an individualized approach and personal attention to every project I take on.

I interpret from English into Russian and Russian into English and provide consecutive and simultaneous interpretation and sight translation, if needed.

I can work with you in person, using video streaming or over the phone. I make sure that the communication happens.

Deep interest in cross-cultural communication and commitment to dependable service allowed me to start an independent business, become a full-time language service provider, and dedicate all my time to the work I love.

I am located in San Francisco, but it does not limit my professional activities. I offer translation services both locally and worldwide and serve clients in the Greater Bay Area, as well as West Coast when it comes to interpreting.

I will be happy to help you! Contact me on Proz.com or via info@olgabogatova.com, and I am looking forward to talking to you!
