Experience: After a three-year apprenticeship in aeronautical engineering in the Royal Air Force, I worked in this field for a few years then went on a one-year course to learn Russian at service linguist schools. After a little over two years serving in Hong Kong on Russian monitoring work, I was sent by the RAF to London University for a further one-year Russian course, graduating with the Civil Service Interpreter certificate. I continued the Russian work in the RAF for several years, then I left to go to GCHQ at Cheltenham, doing similar work there for another two years. After that, I worked at BBC Monitoring at Caversham, Reading, as a Russian monitor, later as Assistant Chief Monitor (27 years there altogether). This involved transcribing Moscow Radio and TASS news items, talks, features etc., including not only political material but also a wide range of technical subjects. I researched the subjects of metallurgy, shipping and shipbuilding, agriculture and the oil and gas industry to produce glossaries for use by the team. In the last few years, I was mainly concerned with the monitoring of Soviet television, training monitors in this subject and producing training material and reference files, as well as monitoring the programmes myself.
I have been doing freelance translations for many years. My main customer up to now has been Derwent Publications Ltd., for whom I produced abstracts of Russian patent specifications. However, this firm is now using English-language abstracts provided by the Russian patent office, so I then worked for them from German. This ceased too eventually. I prefer not to work from German nowadays. I have also worked for Allerton Press Inc. (USA), making cover-to-cover translations of a Russian scientific journal (Elektrotekhnika); indirectly (subcontracted by a Professor of Physics at Oxford) for Plenum Publishing Co. (USA); and for the British Standards Institution translating Soviet state standards (GOSTs). I have recently translated several long articles from scientific journals for the British Ministry of Defence, Defence Research Agency and Defence Research Information Centre. I have also done work for a large number of translation agencies and direct clients.
Other than technical work, I have translated poetry and song lyrics. I have also translated an adventure novel ("The Secret of Ivan the Terrible", by Prof. Homyakov) from Russian into English (2007) and a humorous novel "Three Days of Swine and Roses" (2012).. Also several children's stories and poems, and science fiction stories.
