Professional Profile

Vadim is an independent Translation/Localization specialist with the unique set of skills, combining deep technical expertise with life-long passion for Languages.

As a Telecom undergraduate he took a comprehensive 2-year English language class authorized by Cambridge University, and passed CAE exam held by the British Council upon the course completion. During this period Vadim attended the country-wide Linguistic contest, and won regional stage, reaching the national final.

He joined the Localization crowd as a SME/Tech Reviewer shortly after getting Masters, and worked in the industry for more than a decade since then.

Vadim used to occupy a diverse set of in-house positions (editor, language lead, project manager, LQA specialist, localization engineer to name a few), often wearing more than one hat at a time, and met the related challenges with success, but eventually picked Freedom of being Independent over the in-house career, and Creativity of production linguistic work over the hassle of supervision, and management.

Technical background combined with naturally perfect command of the Russian language, as well as proven proficiency in English allow him to handle the most challenging projects, and specialize on traditionally sticky areas like Marketing, and Advertising for ICT industry. Credentials: Master in Telecom, Cambridge certificate in Advanced English, member of American Translators Association.
