I am a full-time translator and localizer since May 1996 when I started an 11-month contract (localization of the Windows NT 4 operating system into Czech) with Microsoft WPGI (Worldwide Products Group Ireland). After the successful completion of this project I continued translating and localizing on a freelance basis.

I lived in Canada for 11 years and in Europe (Czechoslovakia, Austria, Ireland, and the Czech Republic) for 40 years.
