In this capacity, Mr. Gerasimov has performed English-to-Russian and Russian-to-English translations. During our long-term working relationship Mr. Gerasimov has worked with HRA on numerous projects, including translation and linguistic validations, revision work, performing cognitive interviews with patients to verify the suitability of the translations, and final proofreading. Mr. Gerasimov is HRA's primary translator for Russian translations and we have always found his services he provides to be excellent. His translations have been first-rate, and his involvement and responsiveness in the demanding multi-step process with tight deadlines has been much appreciated.

His work is always produced in a timely manner and of a very high standard, and we would have no hesitation in recommending his professional translation services. Yours faithfully
I know Andrei Gerasimov since 2009 as a competent and experienced translator specialising in IT area. All these years he successfully translated dozens of IBM e-learning courses and communications (KYI program) with total annual wordcount exceeding 100K words.
For over 13 years Andrei Gerasimov provides English-Russian translation services to Ford Motor Company and always meets our tight deadlines. His rare combination of linguistic and engineering educations and backgrounds enables him to deliver accurate highly readable translations.
We have been collaborating with Andrei for several months now. He has translated a number of technical press releases into Russian for me, as well as some other documents managed by our company. He is reliable, sincere and we have only had positive feedback from his work. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any potential clients.
We've been working with Andrei Gerasimov on several regular and punctual translation projects but also on quite huge long-term projects related to IT, Virtualisation, Cloud computing, etc. Not only we got on-time deliveries, high quality translations but also a trust relationship resulting in a real professional collaboration.
It's a pleasure to work with Andrei: he always delivers on time and provides quality!
Andrei Gerasimov is our preferred English into Russian technical translator. He is very punctual and has often delivered our projects before the deadlines established. He is very professional and reliable, we are definitely very satisfied with the work he has performed for us.
In 2010-2011 a translation agency from USA subcontracted Andrei Gerasimov to translate from English into Russian 14 operation manuals for mattress manufacturing machines designed and built by Leggett & Platt, Inc (USA), as well as corporate IT standards; the total wordcount of the documents exceeded 200,000 words. During last 15 years Leggett & Platt supplied more than such 400 machines to Russian enterprises. As a head of Leggett & Platt sales and technical representative office I was interested very much in providing Russian language manuals to our consumers. Previously Andrei Gerasimov was not familiar with technologies and terminology of our industry. Mattress manufacturing is a technically complex industry. Few people understand how winding machine or quilting machine operate. The terminology of this industry is also very specific, so the translator faced a serious challenge. However, to my complete satisfaction, Andrei Gerasimov translated all manuals by deadlines, and the accuracy of his translation exceeded my expectation.
My experience working with Andrei Gerasimov has been one of ease. He has provided English to Russian translations for a quarterly magazine published by a major international construction equipment manufacturer for several years. He has been reliable, attentive to detail, professional and responsive, with a quick turnaround time. We can count on him for a quality Russian translation.
I've worked with Andrei on a few projects for corporate clients. He responds professionally, asks all the relevant questions and takes care to be consistent with reference material. It's been a pleasure to work with him.
We are a manufacturer of engineered equipment for swimming pool water treatment equipment. Over the last three months, we have been engaged in the localisation of our technical and commercial literature for the Russian and Ukrainian markets. To help with this, we engaged the services of Andrei to provide translations from British English into Russian. We were more than satisfied with the results. Unlike many translators, Andrei asks questions. It is important that a translator has a good understanding of the text that he is translating. This takes more than just language skills. It may well be that the source text is ambiguous or uses very specialist or “in house” terminology. It would worry us if a translator did not take the time to seek clarification. Andrei did this very well. Quite often, we found that our original English text could well have been better worded in parts. Andrei certainly has an extraordinary understanding of the English language. Andrei starts each job by compiling a glossary. This maximases clarity and consistency. It even also helped us in avoiding the use of multiple terms for the same thing in the English text. Andrei’s turnaround time was extremely rapid, without any loss of diligence and attention to fine details. We would definitely recommend Andrei and have every intention of continuing to work with him for Russian translation.
We started using Andrei’s translation services in January 2007 and he has consistently delivered excellent quality translations, always returned on time. He is very professional and careful with research and we have had numerous compliments on his work by Russian native speakers within the industry – usually automotive. We would certainly use him more if he had more availability – one of the hazards of being a reliable translator!
Andrei Gerasimov has been our supplier since 2008 for Russian translations to many of our clients. He has translated everything from catalogues to highly technical texts. We regard him as highly competent and reliable, and we are happy to work with him in the future.

One thing we particularly appreciate is Dr. GerasimovТs combined technical background (PhD in technical sciences plus 10 years experience in engineering work) in addition to his extensive experience in creative literary translation (56 translated novels to his credit). He consistently uses correct specialised terminology. His translations are very accurate and written in perfect literary Russian language. They require no additional editing or proof-reading.
Dr. Gerasimov is able to quickly learn highly specialised in-house terminology. We were surprised to learn that he had no experience translating automotive texts prior to beginning of our co-operation. Even his first translation for our company sounded as if the translator had had an extensive previous experience in automotive engineering. He has created a Volvo English-Russian automotive dictionary which is very useful for our company. His translations from Russian into English sound nearly native.
Dr. Gerasimov is a very responsible person, able to work under a very short deadline. His output is up to 3000 words per day. Being an expert in modern IT technologies, he is able to work with all popular types of files on PC and Mac, facilitating our co-operation and saving us time and money.

In 2002, Dr. Andrei Gerasimov translated three brochures for our company regarding Mobitex technology. Total wordcount was approximately 11,000 words. The subject of the documents was data transfer networks. We consider these texts highly technical. Additionally, these brochures were designed for advertising purposes, so we expected perfectly smooth style.
After receiving the translations, we asked our local experts (who work in our company) to evaluate these translations. Both evaluators confirmed that these were high-quality translations Ц meaning-based, very smooth, and without omissions or mistakes in grammar, spelling and punctuation. The translator used correct terminology and ensured consistent usage throughout the project, demonstrating good knowledge of our industry (data transfer networks).
These brochures were published in the Russian language and proved to be very helpful in promotion of our products Ц not in the least due to high quality translation made by Dr Gerasimov.

To Whom It May Concern,
I am very impressed with Andrei GerasimovТs work as my agent in Russia and as translator of my books. He is hard-working and reliable. If he says he will do something, he always follows through in a timely manner.
Perhaps most important, AndreiТs command of English is very impressive. He understands both formal and colloquial English, as well as American culture.

I look forward to working with Andrei in the future whenever possible.
