Sofija has been a member of ZMP Patent department since March 2017. She is a patent translator from English into Serbian and vice versa. She also translates patents from French into Serbian.
Sofija has extensive experience working with patent specifications in the fields of pharmaceuticals, biochemistry, biotechnology, chemistry, medicine, and microbiology. Besides that, she translates the documents which form part of the correspondence between the client and the Intellectual property offices required during the patent validation procedure.
Before joining ZMP, Sofija worked for more than ten years as a patent freelance translator. Sofija is also an experienced proofreader and reviewer of translated texts at the client’s request. She also focuses on the current regulations of the Patent Law to ensure that translated documents meet the requirements set by the Intellectual Property Office.
The quality of her work as a patent translator is highly influenced by the fact that, before this employment, she had been working for more than 15 years in the biopharmaceutical industry. During that period, Sofija gained extensive experience in vaccine production, quality control, cell culture, and preparation of the necessary documentation. Based on that experience, she has a deep understanding of patent applications and patents, which is crucial for the translations to be reliable and correct. Participation in biopharmaceutical production training and WHO conference in the USA and Switzerland significantly contributed to her mastery of professional terminology.
