With water and waste water treatment being my main area of expertise, I began my career as a professional translator in the 1990s translating for my first direct customer, a company designing and distributing water treatment equipment and processes. As it was a local company, I had the advantage of visiting their facilities and learning directly from their engineers. Now, more than 20 years later, we are still in tight contact and I often translate for them.

My other advantage is that I am not just a linguist — I have a degree in engineering as well and mostly translate scientific and technical materials for various customers.

Over my career, I have successfully participated in some major translation projects including “Systems Engineering Vision 2020” INCOSE; Agilent chromatography equipment; filtration equipment by AAF, Siemens, Calgon Carbon, Veolia Water; Zimmer orthopaedic systems and instruments; ZEISS equipment for microscopy and medicine, coordinate measuring machines, etc.

My other areas of expertise include electrical equipment; machinery and industrial equipment in general; toll roads; microelectronics; poultry and fish processing solutions.

My main CAT-tool is Trados STUDIO 2015.

I've been member of the Union of Translators of Russia since 2009.
