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 MODERN COMPUTER-ASSISTED TRANSLATION TOOLS

Why is it important: 

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

OVERALL LIST OF TOOLS

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