Professional practices Marzena Malakhova endorses's Professional Guidelines.

Most of my family are healthcare professionals who did not leave their work at work but often discussed professional issues at home. I grew up surrounded by medical books and medical talks but instead of following our family trade I chose the path of a wordsmith and graduated from Moscow State Linguistic University.

My first translation experience was helping my relatives’ colleagues. They were skilled doctors but to keep their knowledge up to date they had to read medical journals in English. I helped them with my knowledge of foreign languages and they shared with me their knowledge of medicine.

Later on, when I began working with translation agencies, I mostly dealt with documents from pharmaceutical companies concerning marketing authorization of drug products, pharmacovigilance and clinical trials. This soon became my specialist subject area.

I am also interested in the beauty industry and have considerable experience in translating those marketing texts, from cosmeceuticals used to treat skin problems such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis or acne to high end designer fragrances.

I can help you if you need to:
- translate medical or pharmaceutical texts such as common technical documents (CTD), periodical safety update reports (PSUR), summaries of product characteristics (SmPC), patient information leaflets (PIL), certificates of analysis (CoA), clinical trial protocols etc.
- translate texts related to beauty such as skincare, make-up, haircare and perfume;
- review translations made by others, including checking spelling, grammar and punctuation;
- transcribe monolingual Russian audio recordings.
