Galina Blankenship

Description

I am a trilingual linguist with 20+ years of professional experience in the translation and localization industry, language instruction, copywriting, and copyediting. Relying on my educational background in Social Sciences, Economics, and Clinical Psychology, in addition to the lengthy professional experience in technical and legal translation, marketing research, creative writing and copywriting, I have acquired a great deal of expertise in Life Sciences, Law, Marketing, and Social and Behavioral Sciences. To strengthen my writing skills, I have also completed the Post-Baccalaureate Program in Creative Writing with Certificate of Distinction from UC Berkeley, CA.

Against the backdrop of an unprecedented boom in language technology and localization services, I have learned to navigate all major CAT tools, language management systems, various client’s working environments, and other open-source and proprietary MT tools.

I am skilled in content optimization, desktop publishing, creative writing, critical analysis, and research. I have published over 15 language educational books, 3 dictionaries consisting of over 300K words and phrases, and several children’s books. I am scrupulous, highly organized, web and computer savvy, endlessly curious, responsible, and respectful, with a healthy approach to time management.

I look forward to new challenges and opportunities to grow as a language specialist and creator of engaging and relevant content.
