I am one of the fastest translators in my language pair specializing in technical, IT, financial and legal translations. I translate about 1 million words per year and review about 1 more million words per year, so my work experience is really immense.

I offer good discounts for large projects, 50,000 words or more. Due to very high working speed I can usually handle such projects all by myself, ensuring high consistency of terminology and making the review process much easier.Feel free to contact me now over Skype (ivannovoselov) or e-mail ([email protected]).

My rates are flexible, but I give priority to better-paying customers and larger projects. I can have unlimited workload at low rates, so please don't bother me with that.

I work with latest versions of most existing CAT/localization tools (including MemSource, memoQ, Idiom, etc.) and many other applications.

My main working tool is SDL Trados Studio 2021.

I accept payment in BTC and ETH (avg. rate 0.01 BTC per 1000 words)

Subject areas:

IT (hardware, software, localization, networking, telecommunications, wireless, etc), crypto-currency (translated numerous ICO whitepapers, press releases, etc.), technical documentation. Good knowledge of cryptocurrency market. Expert knowledge of telecommunications field.

Technical (metallurgy, oil&gas, various technical specifications, engineering, construction, control systems, measuring devices, feasibility studies, etc)

Economics (securities, finances, contracts, agreements, bylaws, charters, proxies, letters, hostile takeovers, etc). Excellent knowledge of forex/investment field (professional translation and translation review of MBA courses on investment, market theories, etc. by a Nobel star).
Law (contracts, forms, certificates, legislation texts, judicial records, testimonials, etc)

General (letters, articles)
Healthcare (articles, research studies, Medicare/Medicaid documents, software/manuals for medical devices)


1) Speed: up to 7000-9000 words/day, more for additional fee. This is my personal translation speed without any machine translation tools. I can maintain such speed for about 3-4 days.

2) Skills: PDF, trados, transit, deja vu, SDL, catalyst, passolo, helium, DTP, Power Point, localization, Studio, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe CS, Adobe InDesign, C++, Python.
