I am a full-time professional translator from Russian into English specializing in technical texts. I have a BS in Chemistry in addition to a BA and MA in Russian Language and a Certificate of Advanced Study in Russian to English Translation.

I translate only into my native language of English and pay special attention to detail and mechanics. I have a graduate degree in translation; I'm not just a scientist who speaks two languages, but a trained linguist.

I spent 2006-2007 in Moscow translating full time in-house alongside native Russian speakers, including a trained lawyer and a real estate specialist. This included a course in legal translation. I have translated multiple annual reports for major energy suppliers in Russia, as well as real estate appraisals and proposals for commercial, residential, warehouse, office and tourism properties in Moscow, Omsk, and other Russian cities. I have also translated audit reports for environmental and quality management systems, various types of contracts (labor, employment, sales, service, lease and business), promotional and owner's manual materials for food service products, and futures and options trading contracts.

I spent 2008-2011 working as an in-house translator for a major international engineering firm on various oil and gas projects. I translated texts from Russian to English by their specified deadlines on topics including petroleum and petrochemicals, all units and processes in an oil refinery, procurement and logistics, contracts, and finance. Texts included technical specifications, design drawings, equipment fabrication progress reports, inspection reports, meeting minutes, financial reports, and shipping documents.

Since 2011, I have been translating on a freelance basis, specializing in chemistry and other sciences, oil and gas, and pharmaceuticals and clinical trials. I participate in trainings and webinars from the American Translators Association and American Chemical Society and I enjoy taking online classes in various topics (pharmacology and pharmacokinetics, vaccine clinical trials, human anatomy, energy, etc.). I am on the Leadership Council of the American Translators Association Science and Technology Division.

I use memoQ 6.2 translation memory software.
