Dear Partner,

    Technical translation is a special field that requires linguistic skills and experience, as well as deep understanding of the subject matter. Translating engineering and scientific documentation, we mainly aim at exact transfer of the idea or method to the reader but not at the delivery of formally correct speech patterns. It is hardly possible without sufficient theoretical and practical background in the selected field. Moreover, due to the variety of versions, any technical document contains certain and uncertain inconsistencies caused by obsolete terms, latest changes or even misprinting.

    That is why both linguistic experience and theoretical knowledge in the area of specialization are critical for high quality technical translation.

    My engineering record includes over 10 years of project management, practical programming, technical support and software design. Applied programs, operating systems, networks and ERP systems represent essential components of this work.

    I’ve got solid linguistic experience in several international projects, where I was responsible for documentation harmonization, correspondence and translation of scientific papers. In particular, I published a paper in “Computers & Education”, a leading U.S. journal. I spent several years working for American Universities (AU) as an IT professor.

    Hence, if you have a technical text related to computers, communications, algorithms or hardware devices, as well as to artificial intelligence and robotics, I can be one of the best candidates in terms of quality and cost-efficiency.

Best regards,
Denis Smolin, Ph.D.
