    Default Clean Professional/Pure Professional ?

    Hi!
    please help me solve a russian to english translation problem

    In Russian we can call professionals "clean/pure" meaning a person being an expert with a special education and good experience in his field. However in English Clean Professional/Pure Professional seem not to sound that good. Maybe you could recommend a better word or idiom?

    Thanks,
    Viki

    Definitely not 'clean'- that implies 'not criminal' or 'unethical' only to me. How about 's/he is a true professional'.

    thanks
    in fact the company produces professional cleaners. And they need their slogan to be translated.
    In russian it sounds as "professional cleaners from clean professionals"

    So i'm in a dilemma

    How about:

    "real cleaners from real professionals"

    using 'real' to imply genuine, and of high quality.

    or

    "brilliant cleaners from brilliant professionals"

    to employ both meanings of 'brilliant' in a play on words.

    'brilliant' cleaners - shining, bright, fantastic, amazing, perfect
    'brilliant' professionals - intelligent, inspired, the best, fantastic, amazing
