Brief information

- I have more than 20 years of experience in translating to and from English, German, Russian, and Ukrainian, including 10 year employment as an in-house translator with such multinational companies as Gillette and DTZ, as well as various NGOs (TACIS, EuropeAid), where English was the main language of communication. Since 2006 I work as a freelance translator mainly in the medical/pharmaceutical sphere with hundreds (and counting) of medical files translated, including protocols of clinical studies, investigator’s brochures, drug inserts, informed consent forms, articles in medical magazines, medical questionnaires, etc. In the legal sphere, I have translated contracts, articles of associations, leases, court papers, claims, witness statements, and judgments for the European Court of Human Rights, European Court of Justice, and Royal Court of Justice in London. In the financial/banking sphere, I have translated annual and quarterly business reports, financial statements, TORs, IPOs, letters of intent, commercial offers, terms and conditions, banking papers, etc.
