Exceptionally Professional Translator and Proofreader
Last active: 09/01/2013
I am a professional translator with a strong technical background holding a Master's Degree in English and German Philology, skilled in four languages: Russian (mother tongue), Estonian (state language), English (2009, Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English), and German (2003, German Language Diploma of the Education Ministers Conference). I have 10 years of actual experience in the fields of copywriting, editing, proofreading, rewriting, subtitling, (certified) translation, project management, and tutoring – all of them requiring excellent linguistic skills, pursuing knowledge in different disciplines, impeccable eye for detail, and customer-focused approach.
In 2008, I spent 6 months in Germany carrying out project management tasks for a German Embassy branch in Lübeck, Deutsche Auslandsgesellschaft e.V. Working for an international company SDI Media, I have dealt with translation and quality control projects of various content and complexity for such major clients worldwide as BBC, FOX, National Geographic, NBC, SONY, etc. Moreover, I have worked both as a certified and in-house translator in Tallinn.
I have translated more than a thousand pages of all kinds of texts in the following fields: academic writing; agreements/ contracts; (iPhone) applications; architecture; short stories for children; certificates/ diplomas; (electro)chemistry; computer sciences/ games; construction; education; engineering; entertainment; finance; general texts; legal texts; medical texts (incl. MAPI-approved); resumes/ CVs; thesis abstracts; travel guides; and user manuals.
Being very competent and responsible, with proven complete fluency in the languages mentioned above as well as ready to work under pressure to meet deadlines, I deliver content of exceptional quality.
