About me
I gained initial translation experience by working in-house at the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust, Inc. where I learned about all steps of book publishing process. I also provided IT support and training.

In 2001, I established myself as a freelance translator and specialized in the pharmaceutical field, mostly with patient-targeted texts. I obtained a master's degree in pharmacy in 2017 and my thesis was about encapsulation of metal nanoparticles as potential theranostics agents. Having finished my practice at community pharmacy, I am now completely focused on pharmaceutical and medical writing and translations. I provide value added service to clients who need to follow strict process for regulatory acceptance. The benefits of my services are minimized delays, better communication and more effective marketing.
My work areas
I specialize in medical writing that combines patient perspective with industry perspective. I take extra care to ensure terminology compliance and consistency. The first thing is to ensure that I have a sufficient subject matter expertise required for each given text. Research is performed about required aspects. When translating, my main concern is the target reader: translations need not only be of correct meaning but also in native style, professional language and at appropriate educational level. 

In my work I follow good translation practice and I always check that all necessary steps are completed to ensure high quality. I believe that medical writing and translation is the area where quality as a process makes most sense. I also respect the confidentiality of my clients and translation agencies and never disclose their information to anyone without written consent. My computer and files are well protected from any security breaches.

I have developed style guides and glossaries for translation agencies and my clients. When the client does not provide its own style guide, I have developed a standard style guide. I have collected glossaries of pharmaceutical and statistical terms from trustable sources and use them in my work.

I provide translation, revision, proofreading and quality control services. I can perform quality assurance and translation validation services, including cognitive debriefing and linguistic testing that can identify and evaluate communicative aspects of a target text, assess readability, and identify any comprehension issues.
