I recommend Sarah McDowell Translations to everyone who needs to receive quality translations from Russian to English within short deadlines. Her prices are reasonable and she is very conscientious about her work.Arseny Uyukin
Sarah is very proficient in what she is doing. The company I worked for hired her for proofreading the texts in English and translating children’s books from Russian into English. Everything was done in time and exactly according to our demand. It was a great pleasure to work with Sarah and I am always happy to recommend her service.Oksana Stroy
Happy Kids
I had the pleasure to collaborate with Sarah McDowell, who was our freelance English-speaking editor. She helped us with various texts, from blog posts to news, and made them sound more natural. Sarah corrected grammar and spelling if necessary and offered a better version for sentences that sounded fine in Russian but did not make sense in English.

Sarah is a reliable professional with a lot of passion for good style. She is always willing to go the extra mile to improve the project. I am very happy with her standards. I recommend Sarah if you need your texts improved by a native speaker who cares for the quality of your project.Anton Suddia

The translation of a text from one language into a completely different language, moreover, into the language of a country where there are different customs and a different culture, is very complicated work. I was always a sceptic when someone would say ‘I am a translator’. But my point of view was changed by one specialist, a true professional, from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The name of this professional is Sarah McDowell. She is very enthusiastic about her work and has many years of experience. She is in high demand among professionals of this level. If you need a text translated from Russian to English, I recommend contacting Sarah McDowell and you yourself will be convinced of the high quality of her services. Vitaly Savin
I have known Sarah McDowell since Translation Forum Russia in September 2012. She is a translator working in the Russian – English language pair and has an excellent command of Russian. I have been collaborating with her on some texts, and her editing skills are very good. I strongly recommend Sarah as a qualified specialist. Dina Akhmetzyanova
In March 2015, Sarah McDowell reviewed a large field study about the political situation in Kyrgyzstan that a colleague of mine and I translated from Russian to English. I can recommend Sarah as a professional reviewer/proofreader.Sergei Medvedev
Sarah is an excellent editor. Not only did she correct errors and polish the text, but she also gave links to resources with grammar rules that I can study in the future. If you want to receive grammatically correct documents from a native speaker of English and improve your level of written production – get in line.

I ordered English editing and it turned out top-notch and on time. Besides, I now understand when to use the phrase ‘project reach’ and when to say ‘project scope’. I also know the difference between British and American date formats. I am very satisfied.Konstantin Dranch
translation industry researcher

Sarah edited and translated texts for Russian non-commercial organizations as part of the Translate for Life project. The translations completed by Sarah were of the very highest quality. In addition to this, Sarah proved herself to be an efficient editor, who carefully checks for semantic precision, comparing the translation with the source text, corrects stylistic errors, asks for clarification when needed, and verifies information. We are very grateful that Sarah always quickly responded to inquiries and completed work before the required deadlines.Vera Erokhina
