About me
Providing bespoke translation services, I specialize in energy, transportation, IT, and travel and I cover technical documentation, marketing copy, as well as business-related texts for these sectors.

Having achieved a master’s degree (summa cum laude) in Czech and German linguistics at Charles University in Prague and having studied in Germany, Canada and New Zealand too, I have worked in the language services business since 2003—as a translator, proofreader, copyeditor, linguistic consultant, project manager, language instructor, terminologist, lexicographer and researcher. A native speaker of Czech, a nationally certified translator for both German and English and an award-winning English-to-Czech translator, I hold a Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE), a Business English Certificate (BEC) Higher and a Großes Deutsches Sprachdiplom (GDS). I am a Qualified Member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI), a Voting Member of the American Translators Association (ATA) as well as a member of the Czech Union of Interpreters and Translators (JTP), the International Association of Professional Translators and Interpreters (IAPTI) and the German Association of Freelance Translators and Interpreters (DVÜD). I have co-authored five printed German-Czech dictionaries, phrasebooks and grammar books and published a monograph on the translation services market and I have been contributing to the English, German and Czech Wikipedias in the field of linguistics. Apart from the Directorate-General for Translation (DGT) of the European Commission in Luxembourg, I have also worked in a linguistic research position at the Czech Language Institute of the Academy of Sciences and have lectured on punctuation and typography at conferences around the world.

In my free time, I am a passionate traveler, having visited a very diverse set of some 85 countries so far.
