More than ever, IT companies need proven translators who can produce accurate documentation. Good technical translation involves both science and art: understanding terminology in both languages, comprehending software and hardware functions, knowing the industry... then applying strong writing skills and creativity to develop documentation in Russian that is elegant, coherent, and, most importantly, useful.

As an experienced technical translator, I have consistently demonstrated strong skills in all sectors of Information Technologies and Telecommunication. You may be interested in my obvious advantages:
- I am a published author with more than two dozen books, all translated or edited since 1996
- I have been a featured contributor to the number of computer magazines and countless other prints and online publications
- I have Master's degree in Computer Science and 10 years of professional experience in English-Russian translation
- I have dealt with international translation agencies and have been very familiar with the confidentiality, urgency and accuracy involved
- I have fully localized a number of software products for well-known companies, i.e. Vodafone, Avaya and others
- I have translated many documentation kits for the telecommunication companies, i.e. iDirect Technologies, VocalTec Communications Ltd, Iskratel, ZTE Corporation and others.

Rates: My usual rate for both translation and localization (negotiable) is USD 35.00-45.00 per 1000 words.
If the work involves follow-up editing (and you don't need to engage a third-party copy-editor or proof-reader), the rate will be USD 50.00-60.00 per 1000 words.
