Brief Information
I am a full-time translator specializing in Pharmaceutics, Medicine and Life Sciences. Prior to becoming a full-time translator I gained a considerable experience in translation of medical and scientific literature. One of the most valuable experiences was at Practica, a Publishing House in Moscow, where I participated in translation of Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine and Goodman and Gilman’s Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics.

As a freelance translator, I worked for a quite large number of pharmaceutical companies (either directly, or via translation agencies). Also, I've been working for 10 years as a subcontractor translator at Novartis Pharma Russia, which permitted me to get acquainted with almost all kinds of documents needed for the registration of drugs and conducting clinical trials in Russia.

My education and professional experience (30 years of research in Biochemistry, Drug Delivery Systems and Immunology) permit me to maintain high standards of translation.
