About me
I specialize in several broadly defined areas:
• energy (electrical engineering, sustainable development, environment)
• transportation (automotive, aviation, logistics)
• IT (consumer electronics, telecommunications, games)
• marketing (market research, PR, advertising, SEO)
• business (commercial law, general finance, HR)
• travel (hospitality, recreation)
• food (nutrition, cuisine, wine)

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 also have some command of French, Spanish, Latin; Slovak, Polish, Sorbian, Old Church Slavonic; Old and Middle High German; and Māori. I am a Corresponding 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 Modern Language Association (MLA). 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. 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 (Jerusalem, New York, Rome etc.).

In my free time, I am a passionate traveler. I have visited a very diverse set of some 60 countries so far.
