Luba Shamshina, a professional Russian interpreter and translator.

I am a Russian interpreter and translator with a Master’s Degree in Conference Interpretation from the Monterey Institute (MIIS). I work with clients in New York and throughout the U.S. and Russia to offer high-quality consecutive and simultaneous interpretation services from English to Russian and from Russian to English.

Among my employers and clients are the Department of State, the Department of Education, United States Federal and Immigration Courts, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, NYU Langone Medical Center, as well as a range of translation agencies and private clients.

By combining linguistic expertise, deep knowledge of both American and Russian cultures and rigorous academic training, I work to ensure that my clients’ written and spoken messages are communicated effectively and appropriately.

Please get in touch with any questions. I will respond to your inquiry promptly!
