Almost any new technical text contains something to research. This is what I love about translations: you always learn something new, whatever experienced you might think you are. That is why, to provide the best possible quality, a translator must have research skills. Translation needs several phases: 1. General acquaintance with the text to be translated and preformatting. 2. Draft translation, highlighting the items for further research. 3. Learning as much as possible about the highlighted items and correction of the draft. 4. Quality assurance by thorough reading the translated text before submitting it.
I have a Medical Doctor degree from Odessa State Medical University and work as a surgeon in one of Odessa hospitals. My extensive experience of freelance translating and proofreading/editing gives me confidence in what I am doing. I have assisted in translating educational materials for my University since I have become a student, so my overall experience of translating exceeds 12 years now. Although my native language is Russian, I am fluent in English and have a near-native level of Ukrainian. I also have been living in both English-speaking and Ukrainian-speaking communities. As an interpreter, I had a chance to provide my services to some very important people of my own city, such as governor and mayor, and many important visitors with lectures in the Odessa State Medical University.
I can translate in any directions between English, Ukrainian, and Russian with a high speed. For instance, English-Russian translation of 15 pages (250words/page) may take less than one day for me, depending on the complexity of the text.
I have good experience working with Trados and SDLX, and I can quickly get along with any other TM tool, should a necessity for that arise.
I Like What I Am Doing
My most favorite subjects for written translation are medical articles and clinical study documentation (protocols, informed consents, Investigator Brochures).
I like participating in online services to help other people with translation of medical terminology and to improve my research skills, which I consider the most valuable thing for a medical translator. You may want to see my contributions showing my research skills at Kudoz or multitran.ru.
I am happy to answer any of your additional questions.
