Dear ladies & gentlemen,
Re: professional translator (medbiopharma, engineering, finance, law, marketing), millions of words translated

Are you interested in а productive multifaceted translator with a Ph.D. background? 
I worked as a translator for many years, happened to translate lots of medical materials based on EudraGMP terminology of the European Medicines Agency;
worked as a researcher at O.Bogomoletz institute of physiology on international projects;
translated for Kristar company, the exclusive distributor of GC Corporation (Japan), 3M, Rhein, etc., interpreted at venues;
worked at Morion Publishers as a medical, pharmaceutical, financial & legal translator.

I participated in the implementation of International Accounting Standards;
worked at ExpoPromo Group event media company as a coordinator of the US expo portal, hi-tech news sections;

At Japan Airport Consultants, I coordinated on-site technical translations;
was an office manager at Ove Arup & Partners International Ltd;
worked on-site at Procter & Gamble's pad facility as a construction safety inspector;
worked at Hagler Bailly Consulting as a technical translator on the World Bank’s project;
in 1990-ies while working on VNIPI Transgas materials, I chanced to translate the Royal Dutch Shell Production Sharing Agreement with the Ukrainian Government which is traversing the former soviet corridors of power ever since.

I lectured at the Kyiv Institute for Translators and Interpreters (post-graduate technical translation course), now enjoy the freelancer's lifestyle.
Hobby: marine diver experience used in another fun of underwater archeology.
My strength is Ukrainian (CertifiedPro), so when you need some expertise in Ukrainian, it's probably me. I have academic expertise in Ukrainian language & literature.
