User message
Quality translation requires fluency in both source and target languages in order to translate without missing the real meaning of the source while maintaining the original content. It takes years to acquire these skills, and experience does matter.

Professional practices Svetlana Babrauskiene endorses's Professional Guidelines.
Professional objectives
  • Meet new translation company clients
  • Meet new end/direct clients
  • Screen new clients (risk management)
  • Get help on technical issues / improve my technical skills
  • Transition from freelancer to agency owner
I started as a translator in 2000 and since then have been constantly improving my skills and acquiring new competencies. From 2007 to 2011, I worked full-time for internationally-known Russian translation companies, and within a relatively short period of time rose to become Chief Translation Editor and Quality Director. Currently, I am a self-employed service provider (freelancer) and offer all types of language services, such as translation, proofreading, overall quality assurance, project management, terminology management and DTP. With now 20 years of professional experience, I can guarantee quality translation in various fields, including official publications, advertising and marketing, IT, software, Internet, SAP, advanced technologies, business.

I follow the philosophy of saving clients' time and money, learning through experience and providing high quality services, so I widely employ CAT tools, such as SDL Trados Studio 2017, MemoQ and various cloud-based TM-systems as required by my clients. On top of CAT tools, I use the latest versions of electronic dictionaries and a wide range of essential applications to work with text and images, manage projects and search for any information in the fastest possible way.
I am also a quick learner in everything that I do, including new software, and always keen to acquire new skills. I am an advanced Mac and PC user and have no problem in getting the most out of my state-of-the-art laptop.

Quality Management My advantage is a great eye for detail, however, to ensure exceptional quality, I made it a rule to double-check translations: first I edit it and then proofread the final version. I've been editing translations done by other translators for almost 15 years now, and my strong command of the Russian language, natural feel for languages and the linguistic background help me perfect any translation, be it mine or someone else's.

Additional services
For 20 years in the translation industry, I have acquired numerous additional useful skills, such as DTP in the most common formats, including InDesign, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF and others.
