The Maximilian Nefedov team

Our team currently includes 2 office managers, 5 project managers, 4 proofreaders, employed technical translators as well as DTP specialists and IT specialists. Numerous freelancers, both translators and proofreaders, are employed as required. Translators are located in Germany, Russia, Lithuania, the Czech Republic, Poland and other European countries. 

Experience as technical translators since 1995

All our employees are graduate translators with several years of experience ranging from 10 to 25 years. We combine specialist knowledge from university studies with practical work in German, Austrian and Russian companies. Many of them have not only worked there as translators, but also as interpreters during assembly and on construction sites. In doing so, they had a rare opportunity to converse with experts in both languages. That is the best school for every translator.

With us, not only every translator translates. Proofreaders, project managers and office managers are also experienced translators themselves and can be called upon whenever urgent, large or complicated projects are involved. 

CAT tools ensure quality

Every translator knows how to use CAT tools, especially SDL Trados as well as Across and memoQ. Many of our translators work with such programmes as AutoCAD, Framemaker, InDesign, which relieves the workload of our DTP department. 

Founder and successor

The founder of the translation agency, Mr. Alexandre Nefedov, is not only a translator with almost 30 years of experience, but also a trained foreign trade merchant, experienced graphic designer and DTP specialist (Photoshop, InDesign, Framemaker), programmer of Internet applications, author of 2 dictionaries, BDÜ member.

Even with the new owner, Mr Maximilian Nefedov, running the office, Alexandre Nefedov always remains in the background as an advisor on all matters, especially technical translations. This makes us a real family business. 

Advantages of a family business

Family businesses often have decisive advantages, regardless of whether they are large or small. For the companies themselves, it is above all higher profitability. It is a fact that the profitability of large family-run businesses, where family members are in the management, is higher than that of manager-run businesses. Our example clearly proves this.

Our own experience also shows that a family business in the translation industry has what manager-led companies do not have.

1) High flexibility, which is so important in daily business. We work 12 hours a day and more if necessary, if ongoing projects require it.

2) Greater willingness to bridge unfavourable order situations. We can always do without our own profit to protect our employees.  

The core of our business

Our translation agency would not be successful without our great employees, the best professionals in the translation business, in our opinion and in the opinion of many clients, who not only do their work well, but also love and enjoy it.
