    Hitman vs killer

    What's difference? AFAIK, hitman is a man, who earns money by killing people, and hitman can't be called killer. Am I right? Who is killer?

    P.S. In Russian we say "киллер" and mean hitman. That's why I'm a bit confused...
    My English isn't so good, зато с русским все в порядке ))
    I'll be very thankful, if you correct my mistakes.

    Hitman - киллер - One who kills for money/is a professional murderer.

    Killer - убийца - One who kills in general/also known as a murderer

    Terminator is spelled терминатор.
    Schwarzenegger is spelled Шварценеггер.
