Bio

I am an IT specialist with 15+ years of experience. I worked for governmental organizations for 17 years in various positions, such as system analyst, java programmer,  database programmer,  lead programmer, cyber-security officer, and network administrator. I have B.Sc. degree in Systems Engineering and M.Sc. degree in Information Technology. Currently, I am studying for my second B.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering. And, as the result, I have extensive experience in Computers and IT.

I have been working with electro-mechanical systems for the last two years. And, of course, I keep my close relation with Computers & IT. This time, I enjoy the inter-disciplinary experience. And, I add different experiences to my vault.

I am not a graduate of any linguistic program. I have been translating since I was a high school student to support myself. What began as a hobby became a part-time (sometimes full-time) occupation for me. I enjoy translating. To be honest, I get relieved while translating (especially when the subject is related to engineering). My primary fields of concern are IT & Engineering.

My area of expertise from professional and personal background covers below topics:

- IT,

- Anything about Computers (Hardware, software, and networking),

- Power systems and power electronics,

- Technical documentation and specification translations,

- Control and automation systems,

- Cybersecurity-related topics,

- Mechanical & Industrial engineering,

- Electronics, Electrical Engineering, and Consumer Electronics,

- Automotive-related topics,

- Medical information systems and medical devices/instruments (I prefer not to translate other medical content),

- Gaming and game localization,

- Journal translation (Science and Social Sciences).

For more information about my project history, kindly contact me.



I work with SDL Trados Studio 2015
