I have been working as a translator for 16 years now, 2000-2006 as an in-house translator and as a full-time outsourcer since then. During this period I have taken part in a number of big translation projects, including translation of a set of manuals and documents for construction of a cement factory in Siberia, a feasibility study, manuals and documents for construction of an oil refinery in Siberia, international certification documents for one of the universities in the city of Novosibirsk, a number of articles and books on sociology, psychology and arts, various SHE and other documents for the local branch of Unilever Group, various papers, lectures, research articles and certificates for the Novosibirsk State Institute of Trauma Surgery and Orthopaedy, research papers and other documents on ecology and environment for different clients.

My average daily throughput is 1,500-2,000 words. Rush jobs may involve 10-30% higher rates depending on turnaround times and text complexity.

I always stick to the promises I give. I always accept only those offers, where the quality of my work will be the highest possible. I always observe deadlines and other requirements. I never use machine translations. I always seek for an expert’s advice and reference materials in cases I need it.
