Dear Visitor,
thank you for the attention to my profile.

Now you have got a real chance to obtain accurate and in time

I have started my
translator's career during university studying from journal articles. Preparing
my PhD thesis, I had to deep into the informational massive of scientific literature
that is of course presented mainly in English. Abroad pharmaceutical
manufacturing site inspections/audits accompanying with various documentation
in English have improved my professional skills in this specific area. Despite many
attempts in different spheres like science, production, teaching, legislation
and consulting finally I have chosen working with translations as the only way
to achieve and maintain up-to-date knowledge in various branches of modern

My episodic paid translations appeared in 2012. Translation projects are my
main earning activity after 2014 and editing/proofreading has become regular
practice since 2016.

Familiar CAT tools: MemoQ, SDL Trados Studio, Memsource Editor, Across,
CrossWeb, TStream, Xbench. Now it takes me a little time to adopt a new local
or online CAT tool.
