Writing

 

WELCOME!

 

I am a writer, editor, and translator based in New York City. I translate Russian/ German > English. My range includes literature and academic articles as well as commercial and technical texts.

I hold a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from the University of Pennsylvania and a B.A. in Mathematics and German Studies from the University of Chicago. 

In 2011, I won Academia Rossica's Young Translator Award, and in 2015 I received an Honorable Mention in the Ezra Pound Literary Translation contest at the University of Pennsylvania.  

I work independently and occasionally freelance for Eclectic Translations.  For inquiries about rates, detailed samples of my work, or information about my current projects, please email me at vinokour(at)gmail.com, or click here.
