Services

 

I am a freelance translator with 21 years' experience of working in the English-Czech language pair. The fields in which I specialize include machinery industry, materials science, beer brewing, and law. My experience includes translating into Simplified Technical English according to ASD-STE100.

On request, I deliver translations proofread by native speakers of British and American English, and materials checked by Czech language teachers.

I use the following Computer-Aided Translation tools: SDL Trados Studio 2017, memoQ and Memsource.
