Why me?

Welcome to my profile at Whether you are looking for a one-time or a long-term contract for Russian translation services, you are in the right place. Read on, download my CV, check the references, and be confident that you receive a reliable and timely translation. Translation quality is ensured due to my linguistic education, about 20 years of work in
translation business (both in-house and free-lance), and constant professional development.
I am a member of Ukrainian Translators Association with MA University diploma in translation.
Several certificates confirm my engineering knowledge. Solid technical backround allows me
to translate the most complex technical manuals. I know the client's requirements and standards for translation,
able to work with most contemporary translation tools including web interfaces. I support
effective communication with project managers - and always find the solution if your project manager needs help.
I am experienced in linguistic co-ordination and quality control of large projects done by translators teams.
