Hello and Thank You for Visiting!

NOTE: If you are looking 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 full-time freelance translator
and editor with strong expertise in Telecom, IT, marketing, HRM, business, and beyond, who
has been harnessing his language skills and diverse competencies for years.

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

A non-exhaustive list of my professional activities includes:

• Deployment of ICT-related R&D and marketing projects with leading industry organizations
• Editing of reviews of new ICT products and solutions, localization of sales support and promo
   materials for vendors aiming to gain a foothold in the Russian market
 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)
 Elaboration of framework guidelines and technical regulations in associated fields

I have always been keen on English... but had to learn German in a specialized language school (mit erweitertem Deutschunterricht) first. Right 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
in the capability of the Russian experts' team leader
• Auditing vendors' manufacturing facilities within ICT products certifications

Since I've been there and done that, I am able to pick up the meaning behind the words and to perform different linguistic tasks effectively and efficiently. For over the past 15+ years, I have translated and edited
a ton of 
various content items:
 reports and articles, technical guides and user manuals, standards and
regulations, sales support and marketing materials.

Now, having both language proficiency and strong knowledge of technology, marketing, and business practices,
I offer freelance linguistic services in EN→RU language pair. 
I enjoy participating in projects on websites, software products, apps (both UI strings and manuals), and e-learning packages localization. Also, I provide support for some
blue chips in their corporate communications and marketing activities. And I have the privilege of being a member
of the Google L10N team.

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

Should you need any extra info, feel free to request my CV. It reveals some further details of my skills and competencies that you can leverage to your benefit. If you are really committed to delivering value to your
customers, i.e. providing them with a high-quality outcome, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thank You for Your Time and Consideration!
