I am a native Slovak translator having worked in the industry for over 10 years. I am fluent in English and German, at intermediate level in Hungarian and a Basic speaker of Spanish.

I have lived in the United Kingdom for 9 years during which time I have worked as a freelance translator and interpreter, telephonic and face to face interpreter in various areas of daily life. This helped me to achieve a level of proficiency in the English language.

I have experience in interpreting between English and Slovak in Schools, Hospitals, Prisons, Custom offices and Local authorities and various other surroundings.

During the last 10 years I have worked full time as translator from English and German into my native Slovak language. I have also in-house translation experience in the Construction industry.
