Hello and Thank You for Visiting!

NOTE: If you are browsing for a linguist covering all the fields of knowledge, it is unlikely
that my experience would be of great interest to you.
But you are at the right place if seeking a native Russian EN-RU translator and editor with strong
expertise in Telecom, IT, marketing, HRM, business, and beyond who has been harnessing the
language skills and diverse competencies for years.

With my Ph.D. in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and a higher degree in Business Administration, I gained extensive knowledge and a wealth of hands-on experience in the areas of my translation specialization highlighted in my profile.

A (non-exhaustive) list of my professional activities includes:

• Deployment of ICT-related R&D and marketing projects with leading industry organizations
• Development of promotional programs, localization of sales support materials and transcreation
   of 
marketing content for ICT vendors aiming to gain a foothold in the Russian market
 Elaboration of framework guidelines and technical regulations in associated fields
 Homologation of foreign ICT products to comply with local requirements
 Conformity assessment of network design projects at the helm of Expert Office of the Russian
   Executive body in the field of ICT (Mininformsvyaz)

I have always been keen on English but learned German in a specialized language school (mit erweitertem Deutschunterricht) first. Immediately after graduating from the Moscow Technical University of Communications and Informatics, I went for taking one of the highest-ranked English language classes in Moscow. Two years of extensive training and continuous improvement of my English skills enabled me to get a professional internship
in the USA (at Northern Telecom and Intelect) and to handle many challenging tasks, such as:

 Involvement in the activities of international and European organizations for standardization
   and regulation 
(ITU-T, ETSI, ECTRA, ETO) for over ten years
 Acting as a Special Rapporteur for one of the ITU-T work program questions
 Participation in the project on the official translation of ITU-T Recommendations
 Engagement in the EU TACIS program for the elaboration of the domestic ICT regulatory
   framework 
in the capability of the Russian experts' team leader
• Auditing foreign vendors manufacturing facilities within ICT products certifications

Since I've been there and done that, I am able to pick up the real meaning behind the words and to perform different linguistic tasks effectively and efficiently. For over the past 19 years, I have translated and revised
a ton of 
various content:
 reports and articles, technical guides and user manuals, standards and regulations, sales support and marketing materials, and so on.

Now, having both language proficiency and extensive knowledge of technology, marketing, and business practices I deliver freelance linguistic services in EN-RU language pair; I provide support for some blue chips' public communication and marketing activities and take part in apps, videos, website localization projects,
and more. I have the privilege of being a member of the Google L10N team.

I am author of more than 40 refereed publications, which have greatly improved my Russian writing style.
Accuracy and consistency are among my top priorities. 

Iyou are committed to delivering value to your customers, i.e. high-quality content that reads well, please don't hesitate to contact me. Should you need some extra info, feel free to request my CV. It will provide you with further details of my skills and competencies that you can leverage to your benefit.

Thank You for Your Time and Consideration!
