Professional practices Elena Melnik endorses's Professional Guidelines.
I am a pharmaceutical translator (Eng - Rus) working in this field for 9 years. My education (degree in pharmacy), practical experience (one year as a regulatory affairs manager), diploma in linguistics (Saint Petersburg State University), and 7 years of freelance translation help me feel comfortable in this field and provide my clients with translations of good quality. I use a CAT-tool during my work (SDL Trados Studio Freelance 2019).

Documents I usually translate involve the whole life cycle of pharmaceuticals (including biologics)
Eng -> Rus, Rus -> Eng:
- R&D, characterization, analytical procedures, validation, manufacturing, SOPs;
- pre-clinical studies (reports, protocols, reviews);
- clinical studies (Investigator's Brochures, Study Protocols, Informed Consent Forms, overviews);
- pharmacovigilance (PSURs);
- marketing documents.

I also edit, proofreed, and write educational materials for translators. Since 2015, I've been running a blog about pharmaceutical translation.

From March to May 2017, I took classes at CRA School (Monitoring of clinical trials according to GCP), a training program by St. Petersburg Medical University & QuintilesIMS (IQVIA).
