Bio
I attended and completed Technical College, field Communications and Electronic Devices. Subsequently I graduated on the Technical University Bratislava, Slovak Republic in the field of study Communications and Electronics. Finally I obtained degree PhD on the Slovak Academy of Science in the field Measurement Engineering.

I was employed for about 20 years in the Slovak Occupational Safety Research Institute as Senior Research and Development Worker. Later I worked four years for the global international Fluor Corporation with headquarters in the USA, on two European construction projects as Safety Manager in English speaking managerial team. During the whole professional career I used English as part of my job.

I am in translation business for 20+ years. Since 2001 I work as full time freelance translator.

With regard to my qualification and previous working experiences I do translations mainly from the following fields: energy / power generation, nuclear power engineering, hydro-electric and thermal power plants, building industry, electrical engineering, automotive/cars&trucs, occupational safety and health protection and environment. But I translate also in other, mainly technical areas.

I devote myself mainly to translation of technical documents as for example: technical documentations, descriptions of products, user manuals and operating instructions, documents on occupational safety and health protection, documents on protection of environment, technical reports, technical standards, etc.

I have a lot of experiences in translations from the area of power generation as I in recent years made a lot of translation job for Slovak nuclear power plants, coal-fired power plants, combined cycle power plants, etc. as well as for operators of transmission systems.

The rates stated are net prices for translation and do not include project management or proof reading/editing by a third party. Full service pricing is subjected to negotiation.
