Hi, I’m Dmitry Kornyukhov
I’m an English-Russian translator and video game localization specialist from Toronto.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Best Russian Translator? Really, Dmitry? REALLY?”
Look, I understand that the site name might be a little bit over the top. But truth be told I didn’t put too much thought into it.
When I was looking for a domain name my whole idea was to find something that is short, easy to remember and reflects what I do: English-Russian Translation.
When I realized that bestrussiantranslator.com wasn’t taken, it was really a no-brainer for me.
Plus my wife said that by choosing such name my subconsciousness had programmed me to focus on quality and achieving great results for my customers. And you don’t want to be arguing with your wife, right? :)
In real life, though, there’s no such thing as the “Best Russian Translator”. You see, translation is not just a profession, it’s a form of art. Similar to writing novels about little wizard boy or composing music for Mad Max or developing video games (yes, I think that video games are the art of the 21st century).
And just like with any art form, the concept of “the best” becomes truly subjective.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder after all.
So, what kind of a translator are you, Dmitry?
Well, I’m a hard-working English-Russian translator who has been honing his craft for the past 6 years by translating hundreds of thousands of words and delivering hundreds of projects every single year.
Maybe I sound a bit cliched, but I love what I do with all my heart and nothing makes me happier than helping clients like you achieve great results through the power of high-quality translation. 🚀

Some other things that I do
Although I spend most of my time working with my awesome clients and helping them reach their goals, increase sales and make their international customers happy through the power of translation, I also try to be a good citizen of Translandia (the imaginary world where all creative translators live).
Being an exemplary citizen, I:
- Write a blog for my colleagues about important issues (such as rates, confidence, business, marketing, etc);
- Manage The Open Mic, – the first blogging community and professional social network for translators that I’ve developed with little over 1,600 registered members (it also has an awesome directory if you’re looking for translators in languages other than Russian);
- Host a one-of-a-kind weekly live talk show for translators with my friend and colleague Elena Tereshchenkova where we chat with interesting people of our industry;
