    Dedicated and dependable. When it comes to translation, I want my translation to be as perfect and sophisticated as possible. A lot of people can translate in Korean, but not all translators have the same skill level. I take pride in making every translation as polished as possible. When a Korean speaking person reads my translation, I want them to think that it was originally written in Korean. I carefully select the words and thoughts that match the original written work. I even consider the meaning behind the words and always convey the same message as originally intended. I have lived in the states for more than 10 years. I studied English language and literature, and Korean is my first language. I have 3 years experience professionally translating English to Korean and visa versa. Currently, I reside in Idaho, USA. We raise our children to be bilingual.  less

    FOR PRO ODESK PARTNERS ONLY PRO TRANSLATION I localize ENGLISH and RUSSIAN texts for 17 years. It's mostly IT or technical stuff, software, sites, movies, games, and books. And I like my job. PRO CUSTOMERS I may not disclose details on a public page, but major IT and engineering companies regularly invite me to translate their highly visible content. PRO MARKETING I graduated from Moscow State University (psychology faculty) in 1997. Then I worked at Moscow Gestalt Institute. I also partnered with COMCON-2, IPSOS & Mart market research companies and facilitated intercultural exchange. My expertise covers practical usage of psychology. PRO QA Every client likes when their deliverables are checked using ApSic Xbench QA tool for free. I also make final edits (just once!) free of charge. That's why my translations do not require considerable time / efforts to be finalized. PRO SOFTWARE No one is supposed to be a jack of all trades, but when it comes to l10n, it's good to have someone around who uses Trados 2007-2011, Passolo, Idiom, Wordfast, MemoQ, MS Localization Portal, ApSIC Xbench, Google Plus hangouts, Pro Tools, Audacity, Soundcloud, Camtasia, and Dropbox. PRO WORKSTATION My PC configuration is Core i5 3400, 8 Gb RAM, a big SSD plus 2 good displays. Accessoires include a HD webcam, a pro MIDI keabord and a pro DigiDesign soundcard. I also use a tablet to check your emails. Your Skype calls are recorded or/and redirected to my cell phone within 30 seconds. PRO QUALIFICATION I may not publish my localization projects because of NDAs. But I invite you to look at my LinkedIn profile http://www.linkedin.com/pub/andrei-kostrikov/a/866/77 Feel free to offer a short unpaid test or a more extensive paid test. PRO WORKFLOW Translation rate: USD 0.06-0.10 per source word Revision rate: USD 0.03 per source word Hourly job: average rate is USD 15 per hour Big simple tasks cost less. Your discounts for 100% and fuzzy repetitions are OK with me. Urgent projects (> 2000 source words per day) and projects with lots of reference files cost a bit more. PRO MULTIMEDIA A small team of sworn multimedia editors is always ready to dub, voice-over, clean or master your audio/video files. They use Mac Pros + Mboxes + Pro Tools + good plugins and monitors to achieve broadcasting quality. And they partner with me as a translator. A PRO SEEKS FOR PRO PARTNERS What I expect from you? 1. Hourly jobs 2. Respect (strict 'free ride' ban) 3. User-friendly environment Treat me as a nearby family doctor. And I'll do my best for you, in turn.  less

    My full-time job is Compliance and Quality Analyst with a hospice organization. This should let you know I am detailed oriented and focused on quality. For me the job is not done until it has been reviewed carefully and is done with excellence. An area of expertise I have which many others do not is dealing with death and dying. Perhaps you need articles related to this subject; or. you just want to tap into an area that many others cannot approach. I can help you with this. I understand the dying process, the needs of the dying, the struggles of the family. I would very much appreciate the opportunity to assist you in helping others with this very sensitive subject.  less
