Certified translator

I completed a 5-year translation course in the Linguistics University of Nizhny Novgorod (1996-2001). Founded in 1917, it is one of the leading Russian institutes where students are trained to become professional translators and interpreters. The University is officially accredited and recognized by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation.

Over 15 years in business

Professional translator since 2001, I worked in-house in nuclear power and food industries. Those jobs were useful experience. I polished up my translation skills and got a lot of practice, more than enough to start a freelance career later on.

 

Freelance career

Initially specializing in technical translations I expanded into hospitality and tourism fields. I have translated:

  •  over 2,000,000 words for booking.com;
  •  2,000,000 words of technical documents.

 

2 mln words is it a lot?

I use Computer-Assisted Translation tools

Your benefits: 

  • Improved Quality Assurance – automated QA process
  • Double-checking – spell and grammar checkers are built into CAT tools to get rid of mistakes, omissions, typos etc
  • Consistency – the program keeps databases and looks for identical or similar sentences throughout a project
  • Reduced cost/turnaround time – similar text fragments take less time to translate at a discounted rate

List of tools that I use:

  • Optical character recognition (OCR) application: ABBYY FineReader, Solid Converter PDF
  • Quality assurance tools for professional translators:  Verifika, Xbench
  • Managing PDF files: Adobe Reader, Foxit Advanced PDF Editor
  • Graphics editor: Adobe Photoshop
  • Microsoft Office: Word, Excel, Power Point
  • CAT-tools: MemoQ, Trados 2011, Memsource
  • Text to speech: Balabolka
