Bio

Thanks for dropping by.

I’ve worked in the field for over 20 years.

My knowledge of English springs from a passion for the language. Luckily, I found the way to turn a pastime into a livelihood.

A year of studies in the US gave me a unique insight into the culture, so now I have a good appreciation of the cultural differences between the two countries.

I have an extensive academic background. I am Ph.D in philology and, actually, I became a university teacher while being the fourth-year student at the same university. However, I soon turned to translation work as I thought one should acquire experience first before he starts sharing it.

I do my best to deliver high-quality translations tailored to each individual client's needs on time and within budget. I treat all material as confidential unless advised otherwise.

Translation philosophy:
1. Never trust your intuition, google!
2. If you don’t understand our own translation, don’t hope that someone else will.
3. Translation is like playing a musical instrument: it gives you much pleasure but requires much skill.
4. New software is developed to help you, not to annoy you.

Specialization:
• Engineering (including pdf drawings)
• Business
• Law
• Economics and accounting
• Production
• Mass media

Recent positions:
• Freelance translator
• Founder and Director of the Language School
• University Professor

Selected projects:
- Project summaries for Skolkovo Foundation (aerospace & space infrastructure, development of nuclear radiation detectors, peer-to-peer content search on the web, noise diagnostics of chemical current sources, electrochemical cogeneration power plants using fuel cells, electronic component base to be used in outer space, etc.)
- EN ISO standards on welding methods, quality control, destruction and non-destruction tests, powder painting, etc.
- Manuals on spot welding, instructions on lean production, Alstom presentations on lean production and quality control, etc.
- Newspaper articles on Khanty-Mansiysk political and cultural news

Software:
SDL Trados Studio 2011, Memsource, Smartcat, SDL Multiterm 2009 Convert, CorelDraw.

I will quickly study any new software the client might need.

Former and current clients:

Railway Car-building Works, TMH Engineering LLC, Tsentrosvar, Express Research and Manufacturing Center,
Tver branch of Knorr-Bremse Rail Holding, Volzhsky Pekar Bakery, Stekloplastic, Isotec LLC, Tver publishing house, WPS News Agency, Inter Voice Over Agency, TTD INC,

Daily output:
about 1,500 – 2,000 words, depending on the subject matter and complexity of the text.
On rush jobs, I can push to 2,500-3,000 words per day without sacrificing quality.
