BP16 Translation Conference in Prague


Other than actual translating (hm... I'm always busy translating), I organized Proz.com's very successful international conference in Budapest back in 2007:
Budapest conference Business - IT - Legal
business, finance, insurance, marketing, economics, law, legal, IT, computers, software, hardware, web, telecom, utilities, automotive, consumer electronics, mobile phones, etc.

Translation capacity up to 75,000 words per month (well, assuming a high repetition rate). General rate is EUR 0.10 to 0.12 per source word, depending on the actual project (difficulty, file formats, etc.). Discounts available for fuzzy matches and repetitions.

ATA membership and accreditation. Excellent terminology research skills and resources. Daily usage of major CAT tools such as Trados and Deja Vu ensure consistent style and terminology.

Excellent command of both English and Hungarian. Accurate and eloquent writing style. Published author in Hungarian.

"Both of us think that you did a remarkable job and we are very pleased. It was very nice transacting business with you; hopefully we will have another chance in the future."

(From a direct client in the U.S.A.)


"... I would like to express my sincere gratitude for all your more than professional attitude toward this very difficult project. Regardless of the pressure that I put you under, you have been very pleasant to work with at all times (even in the middle of the night!). I can't express how much I appreciated that.

You have done a superb job, the translation was of a superior quality and the client complimented us on that. They were very impressed by the work we did.

Again, it has been a pleasure working with you and I look forward to working with you again. Rest assured you are at the top of my list of Hungarian linguists. I will recommend you to my colleagues without hesitation. "
