  • I am a graduate of Kyiv National Linguistic University, holding a Master’s degree in Translation and Interpreting from English and German.
  • Before starting my career as a freelancer, I had several years of experience as both an in-house translator and a project manager at translation agencies, which has given me a lot of valuable insights into the administrative side of the translation industry as well as a much deeper understanding of the end clients’ needs.
  • My primary area of specialization is pharmaceutical and medical translation. I have translated a vast volume of documentation for major pharmaceutical companies, contract research organizations, medical device manufacturers, and healthcare agencies, including but not limited to the following types of documents:
    • clinical trial materials (case report forms, clinical study protocols, clinical study reports, clinical trial agreements, curricula vitae of investigators, drug labels, institutional review board (IRB)/independent ethics committee (IEC) opinions, investigator’s brochures, patient diaries, patient information sheets and informed consent forms, patient questionnaires, patient reported outcomes, recruitment materials, regulatory authority approvals);
    • pharmaceutical industry documents (analytical procedures, certificates of analysis, certificates of pharmaceutical product, drug master files, GMP certificates, manufacturing and import authorizations, patient information leaflets, periodic safety update reports, regulatory authority correspondence, summary of product characteristics, standard operating procedures, validation reports);
    • medical device manuals (diagnostic and surgical tools, laboratory equipment);
    • medical records (case records, diagnostic findings, hospitalization summaries, medical certificates);
    • public health materials (brochures, flyers, guides, leaflets, posters).
  • Another area in which I have substantial experience is legal and business translation. I have dealt with numerous projects involving translation and notarization of documents such as agreements, contracts, articles of association, minutes of shareholders’ meetings, affidavits, powers of attorney, memorandums, statutes, court papers, business letters, bid documents, financial statements, company policies, and promotional materials; I have also worked a lot with personal documents such as passports, IDs, certificates, diplomas, references, CVs, etc.
  • I believe in using CAT technology whenever possible, leveraging translation memories and glossaries tailored to individual client needs in order to deliver translations with consistent terminology and industry-specific wording that can be used efficiently for their intended purpose. Moreover, I am a highly detail-oriented linguist when it comes to quality assurance, and in proofreading both other translators’ and my own work I always do my best to eliminate any stylistic flaws, ambiguities, or errors so that the final text reads smoothly and conveys the source meaning precisely.
  • I am committed to continuing professional development and do my best to strengthen and enhance my knowledge in my working subject fields by reading industry-specific literature and taking online courses on platforms such as Coursera, edX, Prometheus, etc. (for more information, see Certificates tab on my profile).
  • In summary, I am offering you my services as a professional translator with 12 years of experience and proven linguistic, organizational, research and self-education skills, reliable and easy to work with. Please feel free to contact me by:
