Professional practices Diana Shikova endorses's Professional Guidelines.
I started working in the translation industry in 2004, when I joined the team of a well-known Russian company that offers linguistic services internationally. From then onwards, I took part in numerous translation projects and gained a solid experience in various fields such as IT, telecommunication, high-tech, business and marketing. Today I am a full-time freelancer providing professional translation services, and work with both end customers and translation agencies.

My extensive portfolio includes long-term projects for SAP, Endress+Hauser, DHL, Autodesk, Ford, Nordson, Microsoft, Outotec, eBay and other current big-name companies. I translate various kinds of texts, including technical manuals, training and promotional materials, press releases, business letters, websites, subtitles. I also take part in software and website localization on a regular basis. As part of my collaboration with translation agencies, I gained experience in editing and proof-reading, and as a self-employed translator I have successfully completed a number of turn-key projects, which can be proved by positive references upon request.

My competitive position is based on a deep knowledge of the Russian language, which helps me deliver high-quality translation according to the customer’s guidelines, even within tight schedules. During my work in public relations, I developed very strong copywriting skills in both Russian and English, as well as experience in outsourcing translation projects. Thus, you will be sure to work with a provider who understands your expectations and quality requirements.

To enable higher efficiency and speed up the translation process, I work with various CAT tools, including SDL Trados Studio, Passolo, Idiom, MemoQ, etc.

I am open to offers and ready to participate in long-term projects requiring full-time engagement.
